Set in Welsh countryside during the 1970s, with the prospect of a long, hot summer ahead of play and friendships, four boys find their own adventure until unexpected tragedy strikes with devastating consequences. Catapulted into the adult world, they strive to take matters into their own hands.
Last Summer is a powerfully emotional coming of age drama exploring the nature of growing up in a small rural community. It marks the feature film debut of renowned TV director Jon Jones (Cold Feet, Northanger Abbey).
Last Summer premiered at Vancouver International Film Festival to wide acclaim from critics and audience alike. With echoes of Stand By Me, Kes and The Selfish Giant, this is an atmospheric debut for emerging new Welsh talent.
