Paul Mescal is continuing on the indie movie road with his newest flick 'Aftersun' getting its first trailer.
The film, a feature debut from filmmaker Charlotte Wells stars Mescal as Scottish father Calum alongside newcomer Frankie Corio, who plays his daughter, Sophie.
The film is retrospectively shown through Sophie in the present day as she reflects on the shared joy and private melancholy of the holiday she took with her father twenty years earlier. Memories real and imagined fill the gaps between as she tries to reconcile the father she knew with the man she didn't.
The film debuted at Cannes earlier this year and was quickly snapped up for distribution by A24. It received a lot of praise upon its showing at the film festival.
This is the second time A24 have backed a Cannes film starring Mescal. They are also behind 'God's Creatures', another entry which has been getting high praise from critics. Mescal plays a mysterious man on an isolated coast of Ireland, accused of terrible crimes of which he convinces his mother (Emily Watson) he didn't commit.
Mescal also stars alongside Andrew Scott in the upcoming supernatural film 'Strangers'.
'House of the Dragon' star Milly Alcock last week told Nylon that she wanted to model her career on Mescal after his indie success. "I want to do a move that he made. I want a long career, I want to be clever about it."
