Summerland stars Gemma Aterton as Alice, a reclusive writer living on the seaside cliffs of Southern England during World War II. Alice’s life is unexpectedly changed after meeting Frank, a young boy she reluctantly takes in after he’s evacuated from London.

Written / directed by Jessica Swale; additional key cast includes Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Penelope Wilton and Tom Courtenay.

I’m drawn to this one for young Frank’s journey; from feeling unwanted and being all alone to finding the perfect new home.

Another draw is the little hints of humour and the musical score.

Amanda Root, Siân Phillips, Dixie Egerickx, Amanda Lawrence, Sally Scott, Jessica Gunning, David Horovitch, Karl Farrer and Toby Osmond also star.

Summerland Release Dates: July 24th, 2020 (UK); July 31st, 2020 (US)…

During the German air raid bombings of Belfast in 1941, young Tom and his misfit friends fought to save ‘Buster’ a baby elephant at Belfast Zoo.

Written and directed by Colin McIvor, Zoo is based on a true story and stars Art Parkinson, Toby Jones, Penelope Wilton, Ian McElhinney…

This one is for big elephant (my favourite grey creature) fans. I also really want to know which of the elephants in this movie are CGI, if not all.

Zoo Release Dates: June 29th, 2018 (UK & Ireland)…
