Rotten Tomatoes


Charlotte Wells’ debut feature film, Aftersun, is emotionally profound and authentic in its craft. The film effectively captures the pain of lost time and the hopelessly overwhelming desire to understand a long-lost person. Sophie reflects on the shared joy and private melancholy of a holiday in Turkey with her father when she was 11 years old. She has innumerable fond memories with him during their stay at a cheap all-inclusive hotel. But as an adult, when she visits those memories, she realizes that her father was emotionally broken and needed a shoulder to cry on. She was too young then and not capable of completely understanding her father. Now, as an adult, these memories—both real and imagined—help to reconcile the father she knew with the man she didn’t.
