The score for Summer in February was previously released in Europe to critical acclaim, including Classic FM - "Wallfisch's lush score is sumptuously romantic and atmospheric," and Film Score Monthly - "A gorgeous listening experience."

A sweeping romance set at a bohemian artist colony on the picturesque coasts of pre-war England, Summer in February is based on the true story of painter Sir Alfred Munnings (Dominic Cooper) and his blue-blood best friend Gilbert Evans (Dan Stevens). Born into a working-class family, Munnings rises to become one of the premiere British artists of his time, winning the affection of aristocratic beauty Florence Carter-Wood (Emily Browning). But when Gilbert falls for Florence as well, a love triangle emerges with tragic consequences. Tribeca Film will release the movie in the U.S. beginning January 7, 2014 on cable/telco and satellite video-on-demand and digital platforms followed by a theatrical release beginning on January 17, 2014.
