DAYS OF THE BAGNOLD SUMMER is adapted for the screen by Lisa Owens and co-produced by Matthew James Wilkinson of Stigma Films and Isabelle Georgeaux of Pont Neuf Productions.
A heavy-metal-loving teenager’s holiday plans fall through at the last minute, meaning he must spend the whole summer with the person who annoys him most in the world: his mum.
DAYS OF THE BAGNOLD SUMMER is a tender, funny coming-of-age story; an acutely observed portrait of growing pains, friendship and family life.
