Holy emotions, AFTERSUN is a masterpiece of the coming-of-age genre for the February chills. It stars Paul Mescal (with whom you fell in love in NORMAL PEOPLE) as Callum, a newly separated dad who takes his 11-yr.-old daughter, Sophie, on vacay in sun-kissed Turkey. Director Wells achieved a gazillion awards for this lyrical study of memory and experience. The ease with which the film unfolds as the two leads navigate their emotional and physical landscapes points to a confident, personal approach to a universal story in which you will take much pleasure.
