Trailer of Aftersun (2022)
Sophie will reminisce twenty years back to the time she went on a vacation with her father to a Turkish coastal resort, in her current attempt to reconcile the image she had of her father with the man her father really was.
“Aftersun” isn’t just an honest movie about the way that we remember the people we’ve lost — fragmented, elusive, nowhere and everywhere all at once — it’s also a heart-stopping act of remembering unto itself.David Ehrlich: indieWire
An assured, aching, vibrant debut by Wells, “Aftersun” is a shattering remembrance of a father by his daughter.Robert Daniels: RogerEbert.com
It’s a film of such restraint, oblique observation, and poised naturalism that the wallop of this feeling is quite unexpected. It heralds Wells as someone with a Joanna-Hogg-like career path beckoning right ahead, paved by a sensibility all her own.Tim Robey: Daily Telegraph (UK)
