It’s 1971 and Delphine (Izïa Higelin), the only child of a farming couple in the Limousin, stuns her rural community by moving to Paris to go to university. Once in the city, she quickly gets swept up in the feminist movement and falls in love with the sophisticated activist Carole (Cécile de France). But when her father has a heart attack, Delphine must return to help her mother on the farm—and Carole follows.
Through the love story between two women who must struggle not only against homophobia but class divisions, Catherine Corsini’s Summertime presents a gripping portrait of an age of political and social ferment, pungently bringing to life the political and social movements familiar to contemporary viewers through the work of the great French thinkers of the last half century.
