With this sublimely bittersweet tale of romantic longing, director David Lean (Lawrence of Arabia) left behind the British soundstage to capture in radiant Technicolor the sunsplashed glory of Venice at the height of summer.

In a tour de force of fearless vulnerability, Katharine Hepburn (The Philadelphia Story) embodies the conflicting emotions that stir the heart of a lonely, middle-aged American tourist who is forced to confront her deep-seated insecurities when she is drawn into a seemingly impossible affair with a charming Italian shopkeeper (Rossano Brazzi; South Pacific) amid the ancient city's canals and piazzas.

Lean's personal favorite among his own films, Summertime is an exquisitely tender evocation of the magic and melancholy of a fleeting, not-quite-fairy-tale romance.

Summertime is released on Blu-ray 25th July 2022 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment as part of their Criterion Collection.
