Movies From The 2022 Cannes Film Festival To Put On Your Radar

Aftersun

With Aftersun, Paul Mescal has gone from being a depressed college student in Normal People to entering his depressed hot dad era.

Charlotte Wells’ directorial debut which premiered at the International Critics’ Week section and counts Barry Jenkins as a producer follows a young dad named Calum and his 11-year-old daughter Sophie

as they go on vacation at a Turkish resort in the 1990s. Aftersun is a beautiful and emotionally rich story featuring heart-shattering performances from its leads.

God's Creatures

Completing the perfect Paul Mescal double feature, God’s Creatures serves as the actor’s second film to debut at Cannes this year.

Set in a small fishing village in Ireland, the film stars Emily Watson—who is finally given a leading role worthy of her amazing talent and range—as a mother whose life begins to come crashing

down after she is forced to decide whether to continue protecting her son (played by Mescal) or come to terms with the truth about his actions. God’s Creatures marks the follow-up

feature of directorial team Saela Davis and Anna Rose Holmer seven years after their debut The Fits, and its eerie atmosphere and stellar ensemble certainly won’t disappoint.
