Critic Reviews for Days of the Bagnold Summer

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (6)

Funny, slight, meandering - still, a promising directorial debut by Simon Bird.

June 8, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Monica Dolan exudes warmth, intelligence and resilience as a woman whose self-confidence has taken knocks but who's still out there fighting.

June 5, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

[A] thoroughly sweet-natured, charming and unassuming British film...

June 4, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Bird and writer Lisa Owens manage not only to mine repeated laughs from their basic gag - metal mayhem in Hornchurch Drive - but to do so sweetly rather than tweely.

June 3, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The film's whisper-thin premise and sitcom-like characters are the cinema equivalent of Sweethearts candy: rather too sugared, and immediately forgotten.

August 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Deploys some talented performers on both sides of the camera but its promising parts never quite cohere into a properly satisfying whole.
