A tender and funny coming-of-age story about single parenting and heavy metal, 'Days of the Bagnold Summer' is the directorial debut of The Inbetweeners' Simon Bird, adapted from Joff Winterhart's graphic novel of the same name.
'Days of the Bagnold Summer' sweetly draws you into the wobbly relationship between well-intentioned single librarian Sue Bagnold (Monica Dolan) and her black-clad teenage son Daniel (Earl Cave), who'd rather listen to Metallica than his mother.
Sue works in a library. Daniel is the pale-skinned picture of adolescent metal-head angst. 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.
