Movie Info

Two 16-year olds spending one long, hot English summer together in Yorkshire. Mona is a tough Northern lass whose spiky exterior hides an untapped intelligence and a yearning for something beyond the emptiness of her daily life. Tamsin is well educated, cynical and spoiled, and, unlike Mona, incapable of love. At first Mona and Tamsin's distinctly opposite cultures, backgrounds and characters cause them not to understand or trust each other, but gradually these differences lead to mutual fascination and attraction. Added into the volatile mix is Phil who, despite his troubled past, has now found divine love which he hopes will save himself and Mona.

Audience Reviews for My Summer of Love

  • Sep 03, 2014
    Emily Blunt stars in the British coming-of-age drama My Summer of Love. Loosely inspired by the novel of the same name, a working class girl named Mona, who feels alienated by her brother's recent conversion to religion, befriends a rich girl named Tamsin who opens her up to art and culture. Blunt gives a strong performance, but her co-stars don't bring much to the table. Also, the script is rather unfocused, and doesn't seem to know where its going half the time (especially given the final twist). My Summer of Love is a rather typical rich/poor relationship film, except that it lacks a point.

    Well, im not 100% sure as to why this is a really liked movie, i didn't think there was very much too it, a compulsive liar, another one who is a bit rebellious fall in love, small town so cant keep it a secret so it doesnt last hence the title! I mean theres not a lot going on so i dont know why its such a big hit! Emily Blunt is great but i think her talents are wasted in this pointless gay interest drama!

    Charming. Quite charming story of a sweet lesbian love affair.

    Alienated by her brother's conversion to born-again Christianity, a young woman finds companionship and love with an equally abandoned upper class girl. The highlights of this film are the performances by the leads, Natalie Press, the always exceptional Emily Blunt, and the woefully under-used Paddy Constantine. Each actor is believable and gives a compelling performance. Though I'm partial to Constantine, who had the greatest challenge in making what could have been farcical real, Blunt and Press are both alluring and tortured. I did have problems with the film's story and direction. The story is so lackadaisical and slowly built that whatever energy the actors and the story's inherit conflict could engender was dissipated. Also, the camera randomly jump-zoomed on certain actors at rare times. I didn't understand the motivation for it -- it seemed like a child had pressed a button he shouldn't have. Overall, when the film held my attention, it was because of the actors' work, but had the director picked up the pace, I think <i>My Summer of Love</i> would have been an excellent film.
