Aftersun, Charlotte Wells

With Paul Mescal, Frankie Corio, Celia Rowlson-Hall


Sophie remembers the summer vacations she spent with her father twenty years ago: the moments of shared joy, their complicity, sometimes their disagreements.

She also thinks about what was hovering over these precious moments: the muted and invisible threat of an ending happiness.



This beautiful film takes us on a nostalgic journey where a father and his daughter find themselves at a turning point in their lives.

Filmed like a music video, the Kodak film is sublimated here. The images are full of sunshine and blue skies, and the complicity between the two actors, Paul Mescal, revealed in Lenny Abrahamson‘s Normal People series, and the young actress Frankie Corio is obvious on screen.

First feature film of British director Charlotte Wells, After Sun distills throughout the film small moments of emotion, like small pebbles, and a wave of emotion overwhelms us at the end.

On the character of Callum, played by Paul Mescal, the director says:

“Calum initially exudes a certain joy and freedom. But the closer you get, the more you realize that he is desperate and confined in something he can’t escape. the cast is not, it’s a pure coincidence. I thought of it as an obstacle. It’s something that keeps Calum from having the vacation he had imagined. He has trouble tying his shoes, smoking. It also creates a contrast with his stature.”


Currently in theaters.



Extraordinary, Emma Moran


In an alternate world where everyone over 18 has a superpower, 25-year-old Jen is still waiting for hers to appear. Feeling neglected and insecure, Jane is stuck between a dead-end job and a love affair with Luke who doesn’t seem to want to commit. Her friend Carrie, who has the power to make the dead talk, is positive and keeps Jen from feeling sorry for herself.



Well, what can I say except that this is the funniest series I’ve seen in a long time?

The absurd situations coupled with hilarious dialogues keep going throughout the episodes. Since they are short (5 min), it works even better.

Emma Moran, who created it, is using her characters to open up about work, love, respect for women and the importance of appearance. What really matters in our relationships with others? 

This very clever series has just been renewed for a second season and I will be among the first to watch it.

Also to be noted, the revelation of a bunch of talented young actors who are Máiréad Tyers, Sofia Oxenham, Edward Graham Porteous, Luke Rollason (my favorite).

See you soon on Disney+!

Emmett Till, Chinonye Chukwu

With Danielle Deadwyler, Jalyn Hall, Whoopi Goldberg

Mamie Till becomes a teacher and activist in the American civil rights movement after the death of her son, Emmett.

The latter, in 1955, at the age of 14, was beaten, shot, and thrown into the Tallahatchie River, with a cotton-picking fan tied around his neck with barbed wire, by white supremacists for allegedly whistling at a white woman while visiting his cousins in Money, Mississippi.

Mamie Till insists that her son’s death was the result of a “white supremacist” act. Grandma Till insists that the casket, containing her son’s brutalized body, be left open to show the nation what was done to him.

The film is told entirely from her perspective.
