WIN Double passes to 'Aftersun'

This first-time feature from writer-director Charlotte Wells has been bowling critics and audiences over since its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival last year.

With beautiful subtlety, Aftersun tells the story of a father and daughter, flitting between the past and the present through shaky home video footage and holiday memories. Set in the early 2000s, the film follows 11-year-old Sophie on a holiday with her father, Calum, at a Turkish resort on the eve of his 31st birthday. As a world of adolescence creeps into view, beyond her eye Calum struggles under the weight of life outside of fatherhood.

The New York Times said, "Wells, with the unaffected precision of a lyric poet, is very nearly reinventing the language of film, unlocking the medium’s often dormant potential to disclose inner worlds of consciousness and feeling."

The Guardian called it a "stylistically daring, emotionally piercing and beautifully understated tale of love and loss".

Aftersun is in New Zealand cinemas from 23 February 2023. To be in the draw to win one of five double passes, click here to watch the trailer and answer the question below:
