      Audience Says

      You'll need to settle in for a movie that's on the slower and subtler side, but Aftersun does a brilliant job of portraying depression, and Frankie Corio is great.

      Anna Bogutskaya Time Out The easy pace of Wells’s direction brings out the best in her central performers, and the chemistry between Mescal and Corio plays out effortlessly. The light moments between them are warm and the darker ones linger heavily. Rated: 5/5 Mar 21, 2023 Full Review Daphne Merkin The New Republic A subtlety—a nuanced exposition of storylines that might have easily been too simplified—that one doesn’t often find in larger films, particularly American ones... Mar 16, 2023 Full Review Namrata Joshi The New Indian Express Aftersun can be momentarily cathartic in making us confront the troubling ghosts of our past that tend to define our present. But it doesn't offer the false promise of healing in the future. Mar 9, 2023 Full Review Marya E. Gates Cool People Have Feelings, Too. (Substack) Its striking imagery evokes both the power of memory and its obscurities through the ingenious use of analog video and purposeful audio/visual distortions. Feb 13, 2024 Full Review Valentina Morillo El Español (Spain) Aftersun is a sad and beautiful exploration of grief, of Sophie's struggle to reconcile complex and conflicting feelings about her father, and her struggle to forgive his decision, and perhaps to forgive herself. Dec 29, 2023 Full Review Srivatsan S The Hindu Charlotte Wells’ stunning debut is a quiet rumination of the lost daughter. Nov 2, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
