Carole, who is a Spanish teacher and feminist militant, meets and soon falls in love with Delphine, the daughter of farmer parents. Unfortunately, Delphien’s father suffers from serious disease and she has no choice but to return home and run the family farm. Could the couple of lesbian overcome the social prejudge and save their true love?
The moderate highs and lows of Delphine and Carole's may not go down as a classic love story. But the sincerity of its actresses (including Noémie Lvovsky as Delphine's quietly observant, unyielding mother) keeps you fully invested in their journey.
What makes Summertime really refreshing is that it doesn't treat its central romance as anything but wholly normal, despite the attitude of other characters, or indeed, the tenor of the time in which it is set.
Artfully calculated and authentically felt, the unexpectedly effective "Summertime" combines the conventional structure of classic movie romance with a sensual same-sex frankness that couldn't be more up-to-date.
