Critic Reviews for Days of the Bagnold Summer

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (2)

  • The film's whisper-thin premise and sitcom-like characters are the cinema equivalent of Sweethearts candy: rather too sugared, and immediately forgotten.

    Top Critic
  • Deploys some talented performers on both sides of the camera but its promising parts never quite cohere into a properly satisfying whole.

    Aug 29, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Far closer in spirit to the lighter works of Mike Leigh than the broader material that made him a well known figure in British comedy, Bird's debut is innately humanistic, with cross-generational appeal.

    Oct 8, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It's a strong directorial debut from Bird...there is a touch of John Hughes about the way he cares so much for the have-nots, capturing moments of desire and hope which are constantly fighting with feelings of inadequacy.

    Aug 19, 2019 | Full Review…
  • An unexpectedly gentle and pensive portrait of a strained relationship between a mother and a son.
