          A love-story set in the timeless and enchanting world of Summerland; sun-dappled days by the sea over one achingly beautiful summer. Fiercely independent writer Alice (Gemma Arterton) secludes herself in her study: occupied by her work but also profoundly lonely, haunted by a lov...e affair from her past. When spirited young Frank, an evacuee from the London Blitz, is dumped into her care, his innocence and wonder awaken Alices deeply buried emotions. Alice learns that wounds may be healed, hope and second chances do exist, and any woman must defiantly be who and what she wants. From Britains Olivier Award winning writer/director Jessica Swale, Summerland inspires with daringly honest and contemporary themes an intensely emotional journey of womanhood and self-discovery, love and friendship.
