Summertime

Gay Essential Review: Summertime (La Belle Saison) at BFI Flare

A classic summer-of-love tale where status quo vs. progress, family ties vs. personal happiness and the struggle to come out of the closet are the central themes, Summertime is set in the 70s and travels back and forth between Paris and the French countryside, making the most of its gorgeous cinematography and attentive period detail.
