47. My Summer of Love

Mona, a poor tomboy who lives with her violent born-again christian brother, meets Tamsin, a rich girl from a distant family who is seeking adventure, and they embark on a summer-long relationship.

What Tierna thinks: “I wasn’t very captivated by this one. It’s a bit controversial in parts yet despite this, the story didn’t get a grip of me. Two girls lived a pretty miserable existence before they met & found ‘solace’ in each other for the duration of a summer.  Their relationship & the relationships around them all turn out to be a bit of a farce.  It’s watchable but I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it (unless you like a good ol’ lesbian story). I will rate this a six out of ten. I really wasn’t fussed!

What Tom thinks: “I actually didn’t mind this film.  Bit surprised it made it onto any kind of list like this – it’s not really strong enough in any department to warrant being ranked one of the best films of the last decade although perhaps it’s included because it’s British – but it’s not a bad film.  I’d probably normally give this the same score as Tierna, but I’ll add on an extra mark and give it a seven out of ten as it has lesbians 🙂 ”

  1. Oh no, you never made it eh? I have run into the same headwinds on a similar project on Twitter (@slackerinc)

    • Thank you for the comment! It was a blast from the past! We started the blog when we were dating and have now set up home and are married! The blog didn’t last but at least something did haha! Maybe we’ll start it again…I’ve just followed you on Twitter. Are you going to keep going with your blog?!

      • I’m very much wanting to get it back going. After all, I’ve reviewed about 300, but my most very favorite 80 or so were never covered! We should both try to inspire each other to finish our projects. 🙂
