Have you ever been surprised to find out a film was based on a book? Film Friday is a weekly feature that spotlights films that were adapted from books.
Dan Stevens left Downton Abbey to focus on film projects and one of them was actually Summer in February. It’s based on Jonathan Smith’s book and Smith adapted his novel (which bears the same name as the film) into the screenplay. Based on a true story it stars Dominic Cooper, Emily Browning, Dan Stevens and Hattie Morahan and focuses on the early 20th century love triangle between British artist Alfred Munnings, his friend Gilbert Evans and Florence Carter-Wood.
