Summer in February red light Dan Stevens Emily Browning

Real-life historical drama about a Bohemian artists’ colony in Cornwall just before World War I ignores their work — including that of important painter Florence Carter-Wood — to focus on a tediously tragic romantic triangle.

If you’re tempted to post a comment that resembles anything on the film review comment bingo card (now updated for 2017’s trolls!) you might want to reconsider.

  • David

    Emily Browning showed so much promise in a Series of Unfortunate Events (she was about the only good thing in that movie) but she has just been in one shit movie after another since then.

  • She’s not bad in this film. The problem is the lack of interesting, well-written roles for women… even young women.
