Apparently although Dan Stevens can leave Downton Abbey, he can't quite remove himself from the early twentieth century. Stevens is one third of a love triangle told in Summer in February. The other two-thirds are played by Dominic Cooper and Emily Browning. Here's what it's about (based on a true story).
The Newlyn School of artists flourished at the beginning of the 20th Century and the film focuses on the wild and bohemian Lamorna Group, which included Alfred Munnings and Laura and Harold Knight. The incendiary anti-Modernist Munnings, now regarded as one of Britain's most sought-after artists, is at the centre of the complex love triangle, involving aspiring artist Florence Carter-Wood and Gilbert Evans, the land agent in charge of the Lamorna Valley estate. True—and deeply moving—the story is played out against the timeless beauty of the Cornish coast, in the approaching shadow of The Great War.
The movie opens in select theaters on January 17. What do you think? Do you want to see it?
