Drama — (2019) — 96 mins — Cert 15
strong language, drug misuse, violence
Director: Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre
Cast includes Matthias Schoenaerts, Jason Mitchell, Bruce Dern
The story of Roman Coleman, a violent convict, who is given the chance to participate in a rehabilitation therapy program involving the training of wild mustangs.
In the movie The character Tom was playing by Thomas Smittle who participated in the actual program that the movie is based on. Thomas was in the program from 2009-2011 and had the top selling horse in the history of the program a red roan gelding that sold for $8500.00.
DAYS OF THE BAGNOLD SUMMER
Drama — (2019) — 86 mins — Cert 12
Director: Simon Bird
Cast includes Monica Dolan, Earl Cave, Rob Brydon
The Inbetweeners star Simon Bird’s directorial debut is a funny, charming and wince-inducingly accurate adaptation of Joff Winterhart’s graphic novel, with a soundtrack by Belle & Sebastian. Days of the Bagnold Summer sweetly draws you into the wobbly relationship between well-intentioned single librarian Sue Bagnold and her black-clad teenage son Daniel, who’d rather listen to Metallica than his mother. Daniel was meant to spend the summer in Florida visiting his dad, but is now stuck with Mum following the trip’s cancellation. The film boasts supporting turns by Rob Brydon and Alice Lowe, but belongs to its two leads. Long-suffering Sue is sympathetically portrayed by Monica Dolan, with Earl Cave’s Daniel a suitably lank-haired, pale-skinned picture of adolescent metal-head angst.
The film is an adaptation of Joff Winterhart’s 2012 graphic novel of the same name.
Simon Bird and Tamsin Greig starred together in Friday Night Dinner.
Some scenes of the film were shot in Bromley, Greater London, including The Glades Shopping Centre, and the Odeon cinema in Orpington.
