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)…
