Metrodome Distribution is delighted to announce the forthcoming Home Entertainment release of Summer In February on 14 October 2013 in the UK and Ireland.

Directed by Christopher Menaul with a screenplay written by Jonathan Smith based on his 1995 novel, Summer In February stars Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey), Dominic Cooper (The Devil’s Double), Emily Browning (Sucker Punch) and winner of the Evening Standard and the Critics’ Choice Theatre Awards for Best Actress for her performance in the Young Vic’s A Doll’s House; Harriet Morahan.

The film is the intimate, enchanting true story of young, vibrant souls navigating their way through love, passion and friendship in the picturesque landscape of early twentieth century England.

Summer In February focuses on the wild and bohemian Lamorna Group, dominated by the charismatic AJ Munnings (Dominic Cooper). The incendiary anti-Modernist Munnings, now regarded as one of Britain’s most sought-after artists, is at the heart of the complex love triangle, involving the young aspiring painter Florence Carter-Wood (Emily Browning) and Gilbert Evans (Dan Stevens), the land agent in charge of the Lamorna estate. Renowned painter Laura Knight is played by Hattie Morahan.

True – and deeply moving – the story is played out against the timeless beauty of the Cornish coast, in the far West of England, beyond the reach of London and its stifling conventions.

DVD Extras include: Interviews with director Christopher Menaul and David Evans (Gilbert’s son); exclusive interviews with stars Dominic Cooper, Emily Browning and author/screenwriter Jonathan Smith; Behind-the-scenes on-set montage with talking head interviews.


You can pre-order your copy now on Amazon UK.

A new Summer In February still has been released along with an interview for the movie that Emily took part in. I left out one of the questions as it contains a big spoiler. You can see that question at the SOURCE.

Directed by Christopher Menaul (Prime Suspect), Summer In February is based on an eponymous novel by Jonathan Smith, a retired English teacher whose former pupils at Tonbridge School in Kent include two of the film’s producers, Jeremy Cowdrey and Stevens himself. It was Stevens’ passion for the story and belief in his early mentor that propelled Summer In February into being. “There’s a strong bond between us,” agrees the writer. “There’s a real love of this story and this project.”

F3S:Dominic and Emily, did you know much about AJ and Florence?

Emily Browning: Not much because although she was married to AJ, she’s not in any of his biographies. She is like this bizarre ghost. It meant the rules weren’t too strict in terms of how I chose to play her.

F3S: How was it shooting the film in and around the real Lamorna in Cornwall?

EB: We all stayed in the same hotel and saw each other every single
day and every single night. We really clicked.

Metrodome has just released the new trailer for Emily’s upcoming movie Summer In February. Emily is incredible in the trailer so be sure to watch it!
