Charlotte Wells’ moving debut feature AFTERSUN details a father-daughter vacation at a cheap resort in Turkey. There’s something unknowable about Calum (Paul Mescal), and maybe this is because Sophie (Frankie Corio) is a child, and he’s her dad, and she’s just about coming to the age where she’s separating herself and becoming her own person. As both a gorgeous ode to the faultlines of memory in family life, and a single, heartbreaking portrait of a father and daughter set to prematurely part ways on a number of levels, AFTERSUN is a genuinely standout feature debut.
