Women Directors - 52 Week Challenge - Aftersun

After the Oscars again neglected to nominate a woman director for the films of 2022, I decided in 2023 I would watch one feature length film that I had never seen before directed by a woman for each week of the year, 52 films.

This is the third

Aftersun - directed by Charlotte Wells

A father and daughter go on a fun vacation together, what could be more heartwarming than that?

Not this movie!

Warning, do not watch without tissues.

A movie about memory, adolescence, depression and life in general - this movie is EMOTIONAL.

It will make you laugh, cry, get really angry, get really sad, and at points get pretty confused until the powerful ending.

While Paul Mescal gets the nomination for Best Actor, it is Frankie Corio as Sophie that steals every moment she is on screen. She is amazing in this, and drives this movie without a doubt.
