My Summer of Love

This movie as not that good but it did present an interesting side to the relationship between two very needy girls. Mona and Tamsin quickly become friends when they happen upon each other on a country road. This friendship soon becomes emotionally dependant as the girls spill all their secrets with one another. As their emotional intimacy increases so does their physical desire for one another until they are declaring their love and faithfulness to each other and sleeping together. The story takes a turn for the unfamiliar in movies but very familiar in emotionally dependant relationships by having one girl “suddenly” decide that she no longer wishes to play this game and leaves the other broken and confused.

This movie also takes an interesting look at the “radical” group known to the world as Christians. I was not offended by their position that we are weird and “otherworldly” and inept to really make any serious change in our lives or the lives of others because this is the statement that has been made for years. In fact it was almost comical to watch these weird and overly zealous and uncaring “Christians” place a 15ish foot cross on top of a hill overlooking their town in hopes it would start a revival and “retake the town from Satan’s grasp.”

The cinematography, acting, and most of the movie was fairly blah but I am not sorry that I used up 86 minutes to watch it.

Not recommended for anyone under the age of 16 or the easily offended.
