Summer in February May 24, 2013

Posted by Alex, Managing Director in Peridot Press.

We are delighted to lend a hand to help promote a new film, written by one of our own authors: Summer in February, released on 14 June 2013.

Starring DanSiF Stevens (Downton Abbey), Dominic Cooper (The Devil’s Double) and Emily Browning (Sucker Punch), Summer in February is a true story about the charismatic anti-Modernist painter AJ Munnings at the heart of a complex love triangle.

The screenplay for the film was written by Jonathan Smith, based on his novel of the same name. Jonathan is a good friend of John Catt Educational: our imprint Peridot Press published his 2011 memoir The Following Game.

Summer in February focuses on the wild and bohemian Lamorna Group, dominated by the charismatic AJ Munnings (Cooper). The incendiary Munnings, now regarded as one of Britain’s most sought-after artists, is at the heart of the love triangle, involving the young aspiring painter Florence Carter-Wood (Browning) and Gilbert Evans (Stevens), the land agent in charge of the Lamorna estate. Renowned painter Laura Knight is played by Hattie Morahan.

True – and deeply moving – the story is played out against the timeless beauty of the Cornish coast, in the far West of England, beyond the reach of London and its stifling conventions.
