An epic true story of love and betrayal, Summer in February features Dominic Cooper, Dan Stevens, and Emily Browning. Summer in February follows the early life and love of 20th Century equestrian painter Sir Alfred Munning before his rise to acclaim. Adapted from the book by Jonathan Smith, Summer in February is set in an idyllic artist colony in England, 1913, as the world stands on the brink of war. When fledgling artist Munning (Cooper) and his best friend Gilbert (Stevens) meet the beautiful Florence Carter-Wood (Browning), romance soon blossoms between Munning and Carter-Wood. However, Gilbert finds that he is falling in love with her as well. As the country is brought to its knees with the start of the World War I, the deeply moving film follows the heartbreaking love triangle that ensues to its tragic result.
This is a great movie. I did not think I was going to like it, because I generally do not like era pieces, but this was great! Get a tissue!
