Best Actor Academy Award Nominee Paul Mescal (The Lost Daughter; Normal People) shines in this superb and searingly emotional portrait of a father-daughter relationship.
At a fading vacation resort, 11-year-old Sophie (Britain’s new child star, Frankie Corio) treasures rare time together with her loving and idealistic father, Calum played by Paul Mescal (The Lost Daughter
, Normal People
), whose performance earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor. 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 Cannes-winning (French Touch Prize of the Cannes Critics' Week Jury) debut film.
