The Last Day of Summer
(1984)

Country: UK

Genre: Drama

IMDb

Synopsis

Last Day of Summer is based on a short story written by Ian McEwan in his book First Love, Last Rites.The film is about the close friendship that developed between Jenny, a nanny (or was she a tutor?) and her young charge Tom during a school summer holiday. It has a pleasing, private quality - that of letting you into a secret world shared only by the two characters. It's the end of the summer and it's Jenny and Tom's last day together. The pair go out onto a lake in a small rowing boat. There's laughter that the two have shared throughout, but it now becomes obvious that outside their guardian/ward relationship Jenny is desperately lonely - inadequate, even. The laughter turns into horrifically violent sobbing, and disaster as the boat capsizes. Tom swims around looking for Jenny, but she's gone. She doesn't want to be saved.It was like a fairy tale gone bad. The realisation that beyond the relationship the two characters shared was a nasty world is also striking.

Good film with the beautiful Graham McGrath. He was a notable British child actor of the 1980s who was also good in 'Lent'.
