London, Wednesday 17th July 2019 – A new image has been released for Simon Bird’s feature directorial debut DAYS OF THE BAGNOLD SUMMER following the announcement that the film’s World Premiere will take place at this year’s Locarno Film Festival. DAYS OF THE BAGNOLD SUMMER will be seen by audiences for the first time when it will play in the Piazza Grande at the 72nd edition of the Festival which runs from 7 August – 17 August.
The coming-of-age film stars Monica Dolan (Appropriate Adult, Pride, Eye in the Sky), Earl Cave (Born to Kill, The End of the F***ing World), Rob Brydon (Gavin and Stacey, The Trip, Marion & Geoff), Tamsin Greig (Black Books, Green Wing, Friday Night Dinner), Alice Lowe (Sightseers, Horrible Histories, Prevenge) and Elliot Speller-Gillott (Uncle).
Adapted from the graphic novel by Joff Winterhart, DAYS OF THE BAGNOLD
SUMMER is a tender, funny coming-of-age story about single parenting and heavy
Sue works in a library. Daniel eats crisps and listens to Metallica. This was the
summer Daniel was due to spend with his dad and his dad’s new wife in Florida.
But when they cancel his trip at the last minute, Sue and Daniel suddenly face the
prospect of six long weeks together. An epic war of wills ensues in the unassuming
battleground of their suburban home as they each reckon with private tragedies –
and pursue their personal passions.
Featuring original songs by the indie band Belle & Sebastian.
