First look at actor Simon Bird's directorial debut.

Best known for his role in TV's The Inbetweeners, actor Simon Bird makes his directorial debut with an adaptation of Joff Winterheart's graphic novel Days of the Bagnold Summer.

The film stars Earl Cave as a 15-year-old Heavy Metal fan forced to spend the summer in the company of his mother, librarian Sue (Monica Dolan). Six weeks of awkwardness and tension promptly ensue. Tamsin Greig, Alice Lowe, Rob Brydon and Tim Key also star, while the soundtrack is courtesy of Belle & Sebastian.

Days of the Bagnold Summer is on UK VOD June 8th.

Check out the trailer below.

The official synopsis reads:

SUE (52), works in a library. DANIEL (15), eats crisps and listens to Metallica. This was the summer Daniel was due to spend with his father and his father’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.

Over the course of one long summer, an epic war of wills rages in the unassuming battleground of their suburban home as Sue and Daniel reckon with private tragedies – and pursue their personal passions.
