Summer in February

Synopsis: The Newlyn School of artists flourished at the beginning of the 20th Century and the film focuses on the wild and bohemian Lamorna Group, which included Alfred Munnings and Laura and Harold Knight. The incendiary anti-Modernist Munnings, now regarded as one of Britain's most sought-after artists, is at the centre of the complex love triangle, involving aspiring artist Florence Carter-Wood and Gilbert Evans, the land agent in charge of the Lamorna Valley estate. True - and deeply moving - the story is played out against the timeless beauty of the Cornish coast, in the approaching shadow of The Great War.

I saw you gazing at her.

- Nonsense.

- Very paintable.

- Ah, so it's over to you, then.

- There'll be a stalking party.

- Oh, I'm sure.

- Might be a gent she's after.

Remember, whatever I say or do,

I'm your friend,

even when I'm a silly bugger.

All right, come on, Gilbert.

I'll beat you this time.

I've been in the rock pools again

and I'm just bringing them in,

putting them in the big tank

and the little devil stung me.

- Gilbert, what a pleasure.

- Florence, how are you?

Here he is. Look, Gilbert.

This one here.

- That's extraordinary.

- Yeah.

Beautiful, aren't they?

When is your first class?

Tomorrow at Newlyn.

Joey's going to take me, aren't you?

Yes, of course.

If Father thinks we're wasting his

money, it's straight back to London.

None of us would want that.

That's exactly what Mr Munnings said,

isn't it?

- AJ's been around already?

- You just missed him.

He came to see

some of Florence's paintings.

- I see, of course.

- And very impressed he was.

- I'm sure.

- He was just being polite.

When's AJ polite?

So Joey tells me you fought

in the South African war.

- Florence.

- What?

- You did. Did I say something wrong?

- No, not at all.

Do forgive me. Joey assured me

you all spoke about everything here.

That's what made this place special,

that sense of frank discussion.



Well, drink in the Wink?

- What, now?

- AJ said he was going.

Well, the Wink it is, then.

- Dolly, you'll like this one.

- Try me.

When Titian mixed his rose madder,

"His model he placed on a ladder.

"Her position to Titian

suggested coition,

"so he mounted the ladder

and had her!"

- Same again, Dolly?

- AJ, you're a gent and it's a gin.

- Joey?

- To Omar Khayyam!

If everyone could write

like Omar Khayyam.

Who's this Omar Khayyam?
