At a fading vacation resort in the late ‘90s, 11-year-old Sophie treasures time together with her loving and idealistic father, Callum. Twenty years later, Sophie’s tender recollections of their last holiday become a powerful and heartrending portrait of their relationship. Following its première at Cannes last year, this debut feature from Scottish-born, New York-based writer-director Charlotte Wells has had numerous wins or nominations at international Film Festivals as well as the Oscars and the 2023 BAFTA awards where Wells won for an Outstanding Debut by a British Writer-Director and Paul Mescal won Best Actor for his performance as Callum. To quote critic Mark Kermode ‘A brilliantly assured and stylistically adventurous work’.
