Movie review - Days of the Bagnold Summer (2019)

Minor-key and understated to a fault, Days of the Bagnold Summer is an accomplished directorial debut for Bird.

Days of the Bagnold Summer review

If, like me, you are a huge appreciator of comic books and the music of Belle and Sebastian then Simon Bird's directorial debut is an easy sell.

Days of the Bagnold Summer review

Earl Cave and Monica Dolan are a delight in this charming comedy directed by The Inbetweeners' Simon Bird.

Uncle: subversive comedy makes life a little less bleak

It may seem like a regular odd-couple premise, but this undersung BBC series is fresh and inventive. And that's before you get to the musical numbers.

Days Of The Bagnold Summer review

Days Of The Bagnold Summer is an endearing, accessible film for anyone who's struggled through puberty, or, indeed, struggled to connect with a family member going through it.
