A Fine Bright Day Today

Written by Philip Goulding
Directed by Mary Board

Since the death of her trawler-man husband 30 years ago, Margaret Harvey has lived with her daughter, Rebecca, in a small cottage in a coastal town. Rebecca is moving out to live with her boyfriend, so when Margaret meets Milton Farnsworth, an American visiting the area to paint the landscape, she invites him to lodge with her during his stay. Margaret has become increasingly set in her ways over the years, dependent on ritual and superstition, but with patience, humour and cheap wine Milton gradually encourages her to relinquish control.

“A Fine Bright Day Today” sensitively explores love in later life and the shifting relationship between mother and daughter.
