La belle saison (Summertime)

Catherine Corsini 2016 France 105min french
Synopsis: 

In the vibrant Paris of the early 70s, frustrated farm girl Delphine (Izia Higelin) trades the family farm for a job in the big city. There she discovers a group of feminist activists, before long churning out abortion rights flyers on a mimeograph machine. The real draw however is the group’s firebrand leader, Carole (Cécile de France). Despite the fact that Carole has a nice lefty boyfriend, she and Delphine are soon skipping political rallies for afternoons in bed together. But when a family emergency pulls Delphine back to the farm, their relationship is challenged. Catherine Corsini’s (La répétition) film is at once sensual, exhilarating, and a paean to that brief, carefree window of youth in which expectations and dreams are suddenly liberated from familial confines. With a smart script that pulls no punches, La belle saison is a poetic tale that thrives in the love and political idealism of Carole and Delphine as they confront the question: Is love really all you need?
