Days of the Bagnold Summer Limited Edition Blu-ray Unboxing


Posted April 26, 2022 by


One of the sweetest and indeed best films of 2019, Days of the Bagnold Summer is a tender coming-of-age classic from filmmaker Simon Bird (The Inbetweeners’ Will McKenzie), now given a wonderful Blu-ray release from those folks at ANTI-WORLDS. With a very limited edition version available featuring a special slipcover signed by Bird, this is a must-own for collectors and film fans alike! 

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. DAYS OF THE BAGNOLD SUMMER is a tender, funny coming-of-age story; an acutely observed portrait of growing pains, friendship and family life.
