IFC Films’ Summerland Trailer & Poster From Filmmaker Jessica Swale
IFC Films has released the official trailer and poster for the war drama Summerland, written and directed by Olivier Award-winning playwright Jessica Swale (Nell Gwynn). You can check out the trailer and poster below!
Swale 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 (Gemma Bovery, Byzantium, Quantum of Solace), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Loki, Motherless Brooklyn, Beyond the Lights), Penelope Wilton (Downton Abbey, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), Tom Courtenay (The Aeronauts, Doctor Zhivago) and up and comer Lucas Bond star in this intensely emotional story of love’s endurance in trying times.
Summerland will arrive in select theaters (subject to theater availability) and on VOD/Digital platforms on July 31.
