    Two girls from different backgrounds meet one Summer, spend time together, fall in love, Summer ends.
    Decent story & well acted out by the two lead actresses &, of course, Paddy Considine.
    Nice setting of a small Northern town & a good soundtrack to back it up.

    Press and Blunt are major discoveries: in this sly and wonderfully atmospheric gem, they conjure up the role-playing raptures of youth with perfect poetic pitch.

    Its stars, Emily Blunt and Natalie Press, are film newcomers who give startling performances. The photography is often breathtakingly original.
  3. Some of the metaphors are a bit too literal but the director largely succeeds with his story and the surprises are convincing. Best of all the film has a terrific sense of humor and the young actresses exploit it delightfully.
