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.
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). Munnings rises to become one of the premier artists of his time, winning the affection of beauty Florence Carter-Wood (Browning). But when Gilbert falls for Florence as well, a love triangle emerges with tragic consequences.
Just like the title leads you to a direction that would change your life forever as we follow these people into their lives.
