Summer Time 2015 NR

Summer Time is a beautifully filmed French movie with sub-titles. It is filmed mostly in a small rural farming community. However, the movie begins in Paris on a college campus in the 1970’s. The film is about two young woman falling in love and their struggle with disclosing this fact to family and their community. As one Netflix reviewers wrote, “how do you choose between love for a place and love for a woman?” The film also addresses the importance of women holding power and how often society undervalues this power. The cinematography in this film is beautiful. The nude and love scenes are tasteful and erotic. I strongly recommend this film. 2/5/17 (available on Netflix)
