‘Aftersun’: Exploring Father-Daughter Bonds in the Memories of an Eternal Summer – Screen Queens


I feel extremely lucky to have SCREEN QUEENS JOURNAL publish my take on the semi-autobiographical cinematic work AFTERSUN(2022) that employs utter realism to beautifully illustrate the beauty and warts in a father-daughter bond.

It is a work that has gathered its director Charlotte Wells universal acclaim and has as recently as yesterday made its lead actor Paul Mescal, who plays the young father, receive a prestigious Oscar nomination. So in that backdrop, my essay becomes more relevant given how I trace its emotional core and truth.

Read it and share your thoughts.
