  • Made with great panache, this is a real gem of understated poignancy; about summers as lovely as they are fraught.

  • Arterton towers in the role, not always in a good way. A stronger director might have reined her in, but Swale is not yet that experienced. When you add a large amount of treacle to the mix, the film becomes cloying and pushy.

    January 13, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The child actors - Bond and Dixie Egerickx who plays a schoolfriend - are the most convincing elements of this woefully unconvincing romantic drama.

    January 9, 2021 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Summerland's lilting, soft-focus approach is part of its considerable appeal, but there is sharpness here too, where it counts.

    November 22, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Despite its name (and July release date), Summerland is a film for cozy times, bundled up in a sweater with a honeyed mug of tea cupped in hands.

    November 16, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • Summerland shows us how being robbed of self-expression - sexual or emotional - can feel like slow suffocation. But it's too afraid of uncertainty.
