Tom is the gardener of a large house in a quaint Oxfordshire village. He returns there from the city where he was romantically unsuccessful, despite seemingly ample opportunities, mainly due to his inability to talk to women. On his return, he meets the beautiful new Polish au pair of Harry's; the boy who lives in the house; Anya. Tom is immediately overcome with a fondness for her to the amusement of Harry who tries his best to push him into revealing his feelings to her. He dearly wishes to win Anya's heart this summer, just as Harry wishes for the Red Arrows to make an appearance at the village fair. Both seem unattainable to the boys until the village decides to lend and helping hand.
The charming village of Kingston Bagpuize in which the film was set was the basis for the entire production - the local writer, Guy Browning, had decided that a film should be made in the village. Nearly 400 locals came together to work on the film organising catering, props, costumes, make-up and even accommodating the actors in their own homes.
The film is a genuine British Rom-Com filled with fresh new actors that have barely graced our screens before, but nevertheless present an endearingly witty love story that is almost impossible for anyone not to appreciate.
To be released in cinemas on July 13th.
