Summerland

Author Alice (Gemma Arterton) is a strong and independent woman during World War II, retreating by the beautiful cliffs of southern England. She immerses herself in her work, but is also lonely. When the lively and young Frank, an evacuated boy from London, is adopted into her world, she is determined to get rid of him. But his innocence, courage, and curiosity bring to life Alice’s deeply buried feelings. Alice learns that wounds can be healed, and that everyone deserves a second chance. Every woman has the right to know who she is and what she wants. From England’s strongest new voice, the Olivier Award-winning author and director Jessica Swale, she inspires audiences with an honest and current theme – an intense and sensitive journey of self-awareness, love and friendship.
