'lush cinematography, period knitwear and sincerity...wartime wonderment with Gemma Arterton. The British actor excels as as a crotchety loner who takes in a child evacuee in Jessica Swale's uplifting debut feature'  ****The Guardian

'Tom Courtenay and Penelope Wilton are as sweet as marshmallows on a cup of cocoa. Canny and adorable, Summerland's a family film with a difference'  ****London Evening Standard

'gorgeous to look and immaculately played, with stunning, sun-drenched coastal scenery. Arterton turns in a massively impressive performance as Alice, just as vulnerable as she is spiky'  ****Empire
