Romantic Drama
For audiences aged 12 or above


'Turning back the clock to the early '70s, Catherine Corsini delivers a luminous, golden-hued period piece in which a French farm girl (Izia Higelin) moves to Paris, where she falls for a radical feminist (Cecile De France), only to be called home by a family emergency.
A country girl falls for Cecile De France in this gently tragic French romance, which welcomes audiences into the powerful glow of their relationship.
Perhaps the world is finally ready for a lesbian romance as direct and unapologetic as "Summertime," though this beautifully realized tearjerker works as well as it does in part because the characters themselves don't seem quite ready to follow through on the love they're feeling.'
