Movie Description:
Alice is 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, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Tom Courtenay star in this intensely emotional story of love's endurance in trying times.

A tremendous afternoon watch

Possibly Gemma Artertons best outing yet, what a great turn as her character.

If you want to lose track of time and enjoy it, this film does the job, with a great story that surprises. Just when you think you're settling in for one story, it turns a corner...

Perfect lazy afternoon fodder

Charming and highly rewatch-able!

In this crappy year of 2020, one of the delights of Summerland is how rewatchable it is. I'm spending New Year's Eve self isolating and watching this film again for the 4th time. Gemma Arterton is delightfully crabby (the opening scene in a corner shop sets the tone nicely) as solitary writer Alice who is lumbered with an evacuee in WW2 Kent (and stunning views of the white cliffs of Dover.) Unsurprisingly, her frosty demeanour melts but there is a nice and unexpected look back to a heart break in her past that bucks the cosy expectations of many period dramas.It's relatively tame and safe stuff, sensitively handled but in these turbulent times, this film is comforting and charming. And as I said, one you can watch and rewatch! Not every film has to be grim and gritty, there's a place for well made dramas with a heart.

A very good film

Well this was a pleasant surprise. I think the Critics have got it wrong. It's a a really good british film. The performances are good. Gemma arterton goes from strength to strength as an actor.The whole thing was touching.
