Aftersun + Recorded Q+A


Screening Times


    All screenings of AFTERSUN will be followed by a recorded BAFTA Q+A with Director Charlotte Wells and Actors Paul Mescal and Frankie Corio.

    "This mesmeric debut will make you want to stay suspended in its sun-baked setting with its two captivating lead characters for far longer than the runtime. A triumph of new British filmmaking."
    ★★★★★ Beth Webb, Empire Magazine

    "Wells knows exactly what she’s doing, and her storytelling is as precise as it is piercing."
    ★★★★★ Mark Kermode, Observer

    "For all that Aftersun can be described as gentle, contemplative and even beautiful, it’s also the kind of film that feels as if it’s teetering on the edge of a cliff."
    ★★★★★ Clarisse Loughrey, Independant

    "A film that positively hums with atmosphere and glows with its maker’s promise."
    ★★★★★ Raphael Abraham, Financial Times

    I had my top-five-movies-of-the-year list all sorted. Now - boom! - I’ve had to start from scratch. Damn you, Mescal, for being the cornerstone of something so beautiful.
    ★★★★★ Charlotte O'Sullivan, London Evening Standard

    "Paul Mescal's film is a micro-masterclass in poignancy and heartbreak..."
    ★★★★★ Larushka Ivan - Zadeh, Metro

    "Wells’s movie ripples and shimmers like a swimming pool of mystery; the way Wells captures mood and moment, never labouring the point or forcing the pace, reminded me of the young Lucrecia Martel."
    ★★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
