Simon Bird makes his feature directorial debut with Days Of The Bagnold Summer – and here’s the first poster for the movie.

After receiving its UK premiere at the London Film Festival last autumn, the first film as director from The Inbetweeners and Friday Night Dinner star Simon Bird now has its UK release confirmed. As you’d expect given the current climate, the movie is now going to debut on video on demand services, with a release date of June 8th inked in.

Based on Joff Winterhart’s graphic novel and adapted for the screen by Lisa Owen, the movie stars the wonderful Monica Dolan, Earl Cave, Rob Brydon, Alice Lowe, Tamsin Grieg, Tim Key and Elliot Speller-Gillot. And the first trailer for it has been released too.

A new poster for it has just landed too, that looks like this…

And here’s the trailer, that popped up at the end of April…

It’s a really terrific film this, and do consider seeking it out when it arrives. We’ll leave you with the synopsis…

Sue (Monica Dolan) works in a library. Daniel (Earl Cave) eats crisps and listens to Metallica. This was the summer Daniel was due to spend with his dad and his dad’s new wife in Florida. But when they cancel his trip at the last minute, Sue and Daniel suddenly face the prospect of six long weeks together. An epic war of wills ensues in the unassuming battleground of their suburban home as they each reckon with private tragedies – and pursue their personal passions. Adapted from the award-winning graphic novel by Joff Winterhart, DAYS OF THE BAGNOLD SUMMER is a tender, funny coming-of-age story featuring original songs by the indie band Belle & Sebastian.
