Jenny (a wonderful early performance from Annette Badland) a shy rather plain girl arrives at a commune of hippies situated in a large house on the Thames near Windsor. Lonely at first, Jenny befriends Tom (Graham McGrath), the younger brother of Pete the commune’s leader. Over the course of the summer, this friendship blossoms until the very last day before Tom returns to school.
Last Days of Summer is a nostalgic bathe in the hot summer of 1970, all sunburn and dope smoking whilst listening to some very bad “prog rock”. A very typical early film from C4. More of a vignette than a proper film but perfect for all that.
This is from a 25 year old VHS tape, which is reflected in the quality. I have tested it in Windows Media Player and it is okay but an early version of VLC crashed where I editted out the ad break in the middle. Good luck!
