The Next Best Picture Podcast – “Aftersun”

Aftersun” had its world premiere at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival. The directorial debut of Charlotte Wells flew under the radar until many eventually saw it, declaring it the best film of the festival. With A24 distributing and “Moonlight’s” Barry Jenkins and Adele Romanski producing, the tiny independent film took awards season by storm, winning nearly every breakthrough/first-time director prize and more. With “Normal People” star Paul Mescal receiving an Oscar nomination for Best Actor, we decided days before the ceremony to go back and review this film which we missed during its initial theatrical release. Lauren LaMagna & Giovanni Lago joined me to discuss the film’s themes, filmmaking, the chemistry between Mescal and Frankie Corio, how we personally connected with it, and more. Please take a listen down below and enjoy! Thank you!
