Watch The Heartfelt UK Trailer For Aftersun

After recently making it’s UK Premiere at Edinburgh Film Festival, MUBI have released the UK Trailer for Charlotte Wells’ highly anticipated Aftersun.

The feature debut of Wells, starring BAFTA Award-winning actor Paul Mescal (Normal People, The Lost Daughter) and 13-year-old Scottish actor Frankie Corio in her debut role. The film received its World Premiere at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival. Where it won the French Touch Jury Prize., currently playing at BFI London Film Festival ahead of it’s cinematic release.

The debut from Scottish filmmaker Wells, juxtaposes a hopeful coming-of-age story with a poignant. Intimate family portrait that leaves an indelible impression. A film set during the 1990’s and a rare chance to enjoy a holiday with her father in Turkey. Which would become a powerful portrait of her relationship with him.

Whilst not exactly an autobiographical film, Wells has stated her own relationship with her father inspired the story. Heartfelt story that daughters worldwide can relate to with their own dads.

At a fading vacation resort in the late 1990s, 11-year-old Sophie (Frankie Corio) treasures rare time together with her loving and idealistic father, Calum (BAFTA winner Paul Mescal, Normal People). As a world of adolescence creeps into view, beyond her eye Calum struggles under the weight of life outside of fatherhood.

Twenty years later, Sophie’s tender recollections of their last holiday become a powerful and heartrending portrait of their relationship, as she tries to reconcile the father she knew with the man she didn’t, in Charlotte Wells’ superb and searingly emotional debut film.

Aftersun is the winner of the French Touch Jury Prize at the Cannes 2022 Critics’ Week and the Grand Prize at the Deauville American Film Festival.

Aftersun is set for an UK and Irish cinema release from 18th November.
