From the official synopsis...
IFC Films invites you to screen the debut feature from Oliver award-winning director, Jessica Swale, and Variety’s Top Brit to Watch in 2019. Jessica brings to life the story of Alice, a reclusive writer, resigned to a solitary life on the seaside cliffs of Southern England while World War II rages across the channel. When she opens her front door one day to find she’s to adopt a young London evacuee named Frank, she’s resistant. It’s not long, however, before the two realize they have more in common in their pasts than Alice had assumed. Gemma Arterton, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Penelope Wilton, Tom Courtenay and up and comer Lucas Bond star in this intensely emotional story of love’s endurance in trying times.
Summerland will be in select theaters and VOD/digital platforms July 31, 2020.
