Romantic wartime period drama starring Penelope Wilton and Gemma Arterton. It's a tale of love lost and found, told with wit and charm.
"[Gemma Arterton] excels as a crotchety loner who takes in a child evacuee. FOUR STARS." Guardian
The story of fiercely independent folklore investigator, Alice who secludes herself in her clifftop study, debunking myths using science to disprove the existence of other-worldly forces and magic.
Consumed by her work, but also profoundly lonely, she is 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 unlock deeply buried and painful secrets in Alice's past, and make her re-evaluate what it really means to free your imagination.
