Overview

My Summer of Love

Two young women find love under difficult circumstances in this distinctive drama. Mona (Natalie Press) is a 16-year-old girl living in a small mining town in Yorkshire. There has never been much to do the neighborhood, and there's even less going on now that her older brother, Phil (Paddy Considine), who runs the local pub, has become a rabid born-again Christian and is turning the tavern into a hall for prayer meetings. Tasmin (Emily Blunt) is another teenage girl who lives nearby; her mother is a successful actress who is usually away on projects, and her businessman father is too busy with his mistress to pay his daughter much attention. When Mona and Tasmin meet, they don't quite hit it off, as Mona working-class attitude doesn't quite mesh with Tasmin's more refined and educated veneer. But with few other people their age to hang out with, Mona and Tasmin become friends, and with time their friendship grows into something more intimate. However, Mona and Tasmin discover it's not easy to keep their budding romance a secret in such a small town, and when Phil finds out about his sister's Sapphic leanings, he is certain Tasmin is possessed of evil spirits which could hurt Mona. My Summer of Love was enthusiastically received in its premiere screenings at the 2004 Edinburgh Film Festival.

This movie is one of the best foreign films I have seen in years. It is what I call an emotional thriller. Two girls from two totally different lives falling into each others illusions. One’s life has been structured and the other’s a chaotic mess, and when they meet they begin to fall into each other’s delusional worlds. At one point they begin to lust for each other, envy each other, and even love one another, but what seems to be is not always truth. As lies and envy begin to unravel, Mona finds that everyone close to her it seems is fake. Her beloved brother a christian faker, her boyfriend fakes his feelings for her, and her new friend and lover Tamsin makes up a dramatic life to replace her boring existence. Set behind some of the most beautiful countryside scenery this movie takes your breath away and moves your soul.
