Tribeca Film Acquires U.S. Rights to Britian’s Summer In February

Posted by Karen Benardello On November - 27 - 2013 0 Comment

The sweeping British romance ‘Summer in February’ is making its way to American audiences, as Tribeca Film has acquired the U.S. distribution rights to the biographical drama. The film, which was directed by British filmmaker Christopher Menaul, is set to be released on January 7, 2014 on VOD and digital platforms, followed by the January 17 theatrical release. The romance drama, which was written by Jonathan Smith, based on his novel of the same name, stars Dominic Cooper, Dan Stevens and Emily Browning.

The deal was negotiated for the distribution label, which is dedicated to acquiring and releasing independent films across multiple platforms, by Nick Savva, Vice President of Acquisitions, and Peter Rogers of uMedia on behalf of the filmmakers. ‘Summer in February’ was released in the UK by Metrodome Distribution earlier this year.

“Christopher Menaul’s irresistible period piece, with an exceptional cast and set against the idyllic backdrop of Cornish pre-war England, reverberates with the delightful eccentricity of British romance,” said Tribeca Film Chief Creative Officer Geoff Gilmore.

Tribeca Film has released the following synopsis for ‘Summer in February’:

A sweeping romance set at a bohemian artist colony on the picturesque coasts of pre-war England, Summer in February is based on the true story of painter Sir Alfred Munnings (Dominic Cooper) and his blue-blood best friend Gilbert (Dan Stevens). Born into a working-class family, Munnings rises to become one of the premiere British artists of his time, winning the affection of aristocratic beauty Florence Carter-Wood (Emily Browning). But when Gilbert falls for Florence as well, a love triangle emerges with tragic consequences.
