      Kristin M. Jones Film Comment Magazine Ryszard Lenczewski's superb cinematography effectively captures the rhythm of the girls' volatile interactions and growing obsession. His handheld camerawork has a quicksilver alertness. Mar 20, 2018 Full Review Sheila Johnston London Evening Standard With its fast editing and handheld camerawork, the film zips along lightly. Like a classic O Henry short story, it has a sting in the tail. But it's above all about conjuring a sense of atmosphere and place. Jan 10, 2018 Full Review David Ansen Newsweek In this sly and wonderfully atmospheric gem, Press and Blunt conjure up the role-playing raptures of youth with perfect poetic pitch. Nov 1, 2007 Full Review Howard Feinstein The Advocate Anyone smitten with the obsessive love at the center of Peter Jackson's Heavenly Creatures will go bananas over My Summer of Love. Apr 20, 2022 Full Review Tim Brayton Alternate Ending A spare, simple movie, but its simplicity is a great strength. Rated: 3.5/5 Apr 15, 2020 Full Review Paul Dale The List This is a rare, cogent, powerful, intelligent little film from a major cinematic talent. Rated: 4/5 Apr 22, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      PridePosterStudios My psycho-lesbian-summer of…well, it’s not love, really, is it? Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 04/24/24 Full Review elana k unforgettable performances, empowering story and just so beautiful to watch! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/21/23 Full Review Neil G A lovely Story about a summer when 2 teenagers find love. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review wiebe b It's been a while since I've seen it but I remember it being good, and it has a young Emily Blunt before she got famous. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review dave s Mona (Natalie Press) is a young woman living in a small town with her born again brother (Paddy Considine), trying to come to terms with the death of her mother. Tamsin (Emily Blunt) is a student on summer break living at her family's estate, passing the time riding her horse and practicing the cello. From different worlds, they meet and kindle a relationship that extends beyond friendship. Director Pawel Pawlikowski's My Summer of Love is a stylish film about passion, deception, and the danger of religious fanaticism. The acting by the two young leads is excellent, Pawlikowski uses interesting camera angles throughout, and while the plot seems relatively straight-forward throughout, the story takes an unexpected and interesting turn in the final act. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member I loved this movie, up until the final 20 minutes or so. Loved the relationship that developed between the two young women, how loving and supportive they were of each other. Then it all went belly up. We learn that much of what we saw was not as it appeared to be, and a series of unsettling and horrific events brutally destroy the fantasy world that's been fabricated throughout the movie up to that point. The characters we learned to admire are revealed as something dramatically different than what we were shown. So yeah, I'm disappointed. I enjoyed most of the movie, but those last few moments ruined it for me. With a different ending, it could have gotten a five-star rating from me.
