My Extraordinary Summer With Tess – Preview Screening

Saturday 16th November / 1:45pm

Sam and his family are spending their summer holiday on a Dutch island. But it is not going particularly well. Mum keeps suffering from migraines, his brother breaks his ankle and Sam, who has a morbid streak, is convinced he’s going to outlive his family and be all alone. To combat this, he embarks on loneliness training, spending time on his own. But his training keeps getting interrupted by Tess, the strong-willed local who keeps dragging Sam into her crazy scheme to find her real dad. A delightful coming-of-age story full of light and infectious joy.
