Summer in February


Summer in February

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 8/10/14

This is a really enjoyable movie, but it's also very sad. Based on a true story, these artists in England (pre-World War II) form a love triangle. Two of them get married, and they shouldn't. Something tragic happens. I can't tell you any more without ruining the story!

The actors do a marvelous job. You may recognize Dan Stevens from "Downton Abbey" or Dominic Cooper from "Captain America".  Everyone involved is super. My only complaint is that there is no closed-captioning, so sometimes it's hard to hear the dialogue, especially with the accents.

There is only one feature, where Dan Stevens talks about the movie and its history. It's worth watching! Check it out.


Adapted From The Acclaimed Novel Based On A True Story

Summer in February

The Romantic Biopic Starring Dominic Cooper, Dan Stevens And Emily Browning Enraptures On DVD August 12


“Ravishing… A sumptuous love story.” 
– Harper’s Bazaar


“A must-see for fans of Downton Abbey.” 
– View London


An epic true story of love and betrayal, Summer in February arrives on DVD August 12 from Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) and Tribeca Film. Featuring 
Dominic Cooper (Captain America), Screen Actors Guild Award® winner Dan Stevens (“Downton Abbey”) and Emily Browning (Pompeii, Sucker Punch), 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.

The Summer in February DVD also features an interview with star Dan Stevens.

The trailer can be viewed at

A sweeping romance set at a bohemian artist colony on the picturesque coast of pre-war England, Summer in February is based on the true story of painter Sir Alfred Munnings (Cooper) and his blue-blood best friend Gilbert (Stevens).

But when Gilbert falls for Florence as well, a love triangle emerges with tragic consequences.
