‘Aftersun’ MUBI release date revealed

One of the most acclaimed films of the year has officially had a release date confirmed by MUBI. Aftersun will debut on the streaming service earlier than we first thought, on 6th January.

The film stars Paul Mescal (Normal PeopleThe Lost Daughter) and 12-year-old Scottish actor Frankie Corio in her debut role. The feature, from filmmaker Charlotte Wells, had its world premiere at this year’s Cannes Festival back in May.

Eleven-year-old Sophie and her father, Calum, vacation at a Turkish beach resort in the late 1990s. They swim, play pool, and enjoy each other’s company; they’re partners in crime. Calum is the best version of himself when he is with Sophie. Sophie feels like anything is possible when Calum is around. When Sophie is on her own, she navigates new friendships and experiences. As they enjoy their time together, layers of melancholy and mystery ripple through Calum’s behavior. Twenty years later, the memories take on new meaning as Sophie tries to reconcile the father she knew with the man she didn’t.

The film was written and directed by Scottish filmmaker Charlotte Wells, who has been featured in Filmmaker Magazine’s “25 Faces of Independent Film” and was a Fellow at the 2020 Sundance Institute Screenwriters and Directors Labs. Aftersun is her first feature.
