Sold Out.  CONTACT ME TO GET ON WAIT LIST.

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

Nominated for Best Feature and 3 other awards at the US Gotham Awards

Rated 97% on Rotten Tomatoes

“Rumors of something remarkable have circled around AFTERSUN since its première, at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and guess what?  The rumors are true.” – Anthony Lane, New Yorker

“A beautifully sculpted and quietly shattering first feature from the Scottish writer-director Charlotte Wells.” – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

“Charlotte Wells’s tender feature debut is the kind of revelation that movie fans dream of finding: not a wow so much as a guaranteed piece of emotional ravishment.” – Joshua Rothkopf, Entertainment Weekly
