PERIOD SET FRIDAY: 1ST POSTERS FOR WW2 LOVE STORY 'SUMMERLAND' WITH GEMMA ARTERTON, 19TH CENTURY 'ASPERN PAPERS' WITH JONATHAN RHYS MEYERS, JOELY RICHARDSON, VANESSA REDGRAVE

1ST 'SUMMERLAND' POSTER
WITH GEMMA ARTERTON IN WW2
The film comes from Judi Dench's Red Joan producers
Period set Friday today as well, starting with the first poster for Gemma Arterton's new drama SUMMERLAND set in WW2! In this love story, Gemma plays fiercely independent writer Alice who secludes herself in her study: occupied by her work but also profoundly lonely, haunted by a love affair from her past. When spirited young Frank, an evacuee from the London Blitz, is dumped into her irritable care, his innocence and wonder awaken Alice’s deeply buried emotions. Bravely embracing life’s miraculous unpredictability, Alice learns that wounds may be healed, hope and second chances do exist, and any woman must defiantly be two things: who and what she wants.
