Gemma Arterton, Penelope Wilton and Tom Courtenay star in new drama
Sedona AZ (August 26, 2020) – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of “Summerland” showing Sept. 4-10 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
A young woman revisits her past when she opens her heart to a young evacuee in “Summerland”, a wartime drama with a contemporary sensibility.
Set over one extraordinary and memorable long hot English summer, “Summerland” tells the story of Alice, a reclusive woman who has closed her heart to the world.
She uses her scientific background to debunk the existence of other-worldly forces and magic. But Alice’s world is turned upside down when she is tasked with caring for Frank, a frightened and innocent young boy seeking shelter from the London Blitz.
Over sun-dappled days in the Sussex countryside, Frank’s curiosity and open-mindedness unlock deeply buried secrets in Alice’s past, and make her re-evaluate what it really means to free your imagination.
Gemma Arterton, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Tom Courtenay star in this intensely emotional story of love’s endurance in trying times.
“Summerland” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre Sept. 4-10. Showtimes will be 4 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 4, 5 and 6; and 7 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, Sept. 7, 9 and 10.
