Summer Madness (Summertime)

Summer Madness (Summertime)

Fulfilling her lifelong dream for a summer holiday in Venice, middle-aged Jane Hudson (Katharine Hepburn) finds herself wistfully longing for love whilst also fighting her yearnings for the antiques dealer Renato de Rossi (Rossano Brazzi) who encourages her to take happiness when and where she can find it. A lyrical ode to both Venice (which Lean would make his second home) and the human need for companionship no matter how fleeting and flawed.
