SUMMERTIME

Director: CATHERINE CORSINI

105 mins, France–Belgium, 2015, Digital, Subtitled


This film was released 15th July 2016, and is no longer screening.

Delphine (Izïa Higelin) works on the family farm in a conservative rural community in early-1970s’ France. 
She keeps her sexuality hidden, brushing off both her parents’ encouragement to find a man, and the attentions of a local boy. When her secret girlfriend announces that she is to wed, the heartbroken Delphine moves to Paris, where she meets and joins with a group of women’s rights activists, including the rebellious Carole (Cécile de France).

Although Carole has a live-in boyfriend, the two become closer, and begin a romantic relationship. When Delphine’s father has a stroke, she must return home to manage the farm. Missing her desperately, Carole follows, but is unprepared for Delphine’s reluctance to be honest about their relationship now that she is at home and no longer in Paris, leading to strife in this warm and credible love story.
