Summer In February

Well, here's something of a different flavor for those of you perhaps already exhausted (or preparing to be exhausted) by summer movie madness. A period drama, based on an acclaimed novel, featuring some solid actors, all against a windswept UK backdrop -- do you like the sound of that? Well, keep reading on...

The first trailer for Brit indie "Summer In February" has arrived and while it may seem like a "Parade's End" do-over complete with a doomed marriage, and pre-WWI love triangle, we're also sorta suckers for this kind of stuff. Based on the book by Jonathan Smith (who also wrote the screenplay), mostly-TV director Christopher Menaul takes the helm of the story centers on a love triangle that develops in the life of painter Alfred Munnings (Dominic Cooper), the famed British artist who took a marked stand against modernism. He marries the young and beautiful Florence Carter-Wood (Emily Browning), but her heart lies with his best friend Gilbert Evans ("Downtown Abbey" star Dan Stevens). Cue strings and pained expressions of longing!

We kid, and like we said, this is usually right up our alley. "Summer In February" opens in the UK on June 14th -- no domestic distributor for this one yet. Watch below.
