Adapted from the graphic novel by Joff Winterhart, DAYS OF THE BAGNOLD SUMMER is a tender, funny coming-of-age story about single parenting and heavy metal. 
Sue works in a library. Daniel eats crisps and listens to Metallica. 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. 
Featuring original songs by the indie band Belle & Sebastian.
