Summerland (12A)

Friday 21 Aug – Thursday 27 Aug


During World War II, academic researcher Alice Lamb (Gemma Arterton) lives alone in a cottage by the sea, a broken-hearted workaholic since losing the love of her life. When she is forced to take in young Frank (Lucas Bond), an evacuee from London, she soon discovers that there’s more to life than science.

Arterton turns in a massively impressive performance as Alice, just as vulnerable as she is spiky, as does Bond. Their chemistry is striking throughout. The supporting cast includes a note-perfect Tom Courtenay as the local schoolteacher, a sweary Penelope Wilton as an older version of Alice, and young Dixie Egerickx as Edie, a sour-faced tomboy classmate of Frank’s and a future Alice if ever there was one: “I’m a maverick,” she announces, quite delightfully.
