Days of The Bagnold Summer (12A)
- Comedy. UK. 86 minutes
Possibly the most charming film you'll see in a long time, first time director Simon Bird's debut is a quintessentially British tale of a teenage boy's aimless summer, in all it's painful glory. When 15 year old Daniel's plans to spend summer in the US with his father fall through, he faces a long holiday at home trying to get on with his librarian mum, Sue. The joy here is the all too familiar push and pull of a relationship that while never perfect, is still grounded in love. You'll recognise Monica Dolan (Sue) from her work in many a TV show, and she is simply brilliant here, as is Earl Cave in his first role as Daniel. If you've ever watched a fudge making demonstration in a small seaside town, this is the film for you.
***"Monica Dolan exudes warmth, intelligence and resilience as a woman whose self-confidence has taken knocks but who's still out there fighting."*** Time Out
