Charming, poignant comedy-drama from a first-time director and screenwriter - Days of the Bagnold Summer review by Christopher Chiu-Tabet

Spoiler Alert
Updated 24/06/2020

Days of the Bagnold Summer is a perfectly fine and funny film, and definitely doesn’t overstay its welcome at only 90 minutes. First-time director Simon Bird displays a quiet confidence behind the camera, with the cinematography by Simon Tindall largely eschewing close-ups in favor of wide shots. Monica Dolan is great as Sue, perfectly embodying that mild-mannered friend every British woman seems to have. The movie’s main challenge is ensuring her son Daniel remains sympathetic throughout, which is easier said than done, but as the film continues, you start to remember your own conflicts with your parents, and perhaps your own struggles making friends.

So-so 'little film' from Britain, full of teenage grumpiness. - Days of the Bagnold Summer review by PV

Spoiler Alert
14/06/2021

This is apparently adapted from a graphic novel - I never read these so I have no idea if this was a best seller or not.

Anyway, this is what I call a 'little film' - a little British film. Not very cinematic, more suited to TV maybe, very domestic, gentle, domestic.

I enjoyed it as a quirky funny comedy - not one to guffaw at, but just to smile wryly. Some of the teenage lines are great, as are the mother's reaction. The actor playing the 15 year old, Earl Cave, is 18+ here, and arguably looks it. Ever so slightly stereotyped and the scenario with the kids' band and the teacher played by Rob Bryden do not ring true. More cartoon character drama - well it is from a graphic novel.

But hey, a gentle watch. I enjoyed it for what it was. 3 stars. Just.
