A24 debuted the official trailer for Aftersun, the debut film from writer and director Charlotte Wells, starring Paul Mescal, Frankie Corio and Celia Rowlson-Hall.

In the “emotionally autobiographical” drama, a woman reflects about a summer vacation to Turkey with her father during her childhood.

Aftersun premiered as part of International Critics’ Week during the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, and will be released in theaters on October 21, 2022.

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