This week's highlighted film is Days of the Bagnold Summer. Librarian Sue (Monica Dolan) and her heavy metal-loving teenage son (Earl Cave, son of singer-songwriter Nick Cave) navigate differences, dreams and disappointments over the course of a long British summer. Unexpectedly finding themselves thrown together for six weeks, tensions rise in a carefully observed coming-of-age comedy. Featuring a stellar cast (Alice Lowe, Rob Brydon, Tamsin Greig) this poignant and mature directorial debut from Inbetweeners alumni Simon Bird tenderly portrays a mother-son relationship, finding humour, tragedy and occasional common ground.

'Simon Bird’s first feature as director is a gentle coming-of-ager that acts as love-letter to single mums, introverts, suburbia and the great British summer.' BFI review by Katherine McLaughlin
