  • Overview
    Examines the fate of the revolutionary generation and offers 'a funny, touching and at times savage' portrait of a family full of longing that’s losing its grip. Anarchic, feisty but growing old, high society drop-out Judy Haussman remains in spirit with the Ashrams of the 1960s while holding court in her dilapidated Art Deco house on the Devon Coast. After an operation, she’s joined by wayward offspring Nick and Libby , sharp-eyed granddaughter Summer, local doctor Peter, and Daniel, a troubled teenager who makes use of the family’s crumbling swimming pool. Together they share a few sweltering months as they alternately cling to and flee this louche and chaotic world of all-day drinking, infatuations, long-held resentments, free love and failure.
