Based on the critically acclaimed graphic novel by Joff Winterhart, DAYS OF THE BAGNOLD SUMMER is a funny yet sweet coming-of-age story about single motherhood and Metallica. Daniel (Earl Cave, son of music legend Nick Cave) was supposed to spend the summer with his dad and his dad's new wife in Florida, but when his dad cancels the trip, Daniel and his mom (Monica Dolan, A VERY ENGLISH SCANDAL) suddenly face the prospect of six long weeks together. An epic war of wills ensues in their suburban home as Daniel just wants to listen to heavy metal and start a band while his mom hopes to rekindle the fun times they used to have together. The feature directorial debut of British actor Simon Bird (THE INBETWEENERS), DAYS OF THE BAGNOLD SUMMER also boasts several original songs by Belle and Sebastian. Rob Brydon, Tamsin Greig and Alice Lowe round out the supporting cast. Official Selection, 2019 Locarno, London and Mill Valley film festivals.
