Gathr Presents: “Summer in February” Sneak Preview
January 7, 2014
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, Mamma Mia!) and his blue-blood best friend Gilbert (Dan Stevens, “Downton Abbey”). 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, Sleeping Beauty). But when Gilbert falls for Florence as well, a love triangle emerges with tragic consequences.
The Cornish coast, a timeless landscape, its beauty an inspiration to young artists for generations. The hauntingly beautiful, enigmatic Florence Carter-Wood flees from London, craving excitement and freedom. She joins her brother in a group of artists whose wild, bohemian world has as its star the charismatic and larger than life AJ Munnings. AJ and his best friend - soldier Gilbert Evans – both fall head over heels in love with Florence, but despite her feelings for Gilbert, Florence is mesmerized by AJ’s talent and magnetism. Too late she realizes her mistake, breaking everyone’s heart, especially her own. It is an unforgettably compelling story, deeply moving - and true.
