A Day at the Beach

A Day at the Beach

Movie: A Day at the Beach
Director: Simon Hesera
Produced by: Paramount
Released By:
MPAA Rating:

Roman Polanski wrote the screenplay for this decidedly offbeat drama. Bernie plays a rootless wanderer with a fondness for alcohol and no clear goals in life. Bernie stumbles into a seaside resort community with Winnie, a young girl in leg braces, in tow. As Bernie starts hitting the bottle, his physical and emotional stability starts to crumble, and Winnie begins to worry for his safety, until he finally collapses and Winnie panics, with no one left to look after her. Peter Sellers makes a brief cameo appearance as a gay shopkeeper who sets up a booth to take advantage of the beach traffic. While Polanski originally intended to direct A Day At The Beach, he later turned over the reigns to filmmaker Simon Hesera, it was his first dramatic feature, and his last.
