Aftersun at Glasgow Film Theatre


18 November – 1 December, 2022

At a fading vacation resort, 11-year-old Sophie treasures rare time together with her loving and idealistic father, Calum (Paul Mescal). 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.

An amazing feature debut. Mescal and Corio’s rapport is a marvel. ★★★★★

The Guardian

The best film of the year so far. You won’t walk away the same person.
