La Belle saison (Summertime) (2015, 105 min)

Film has English subtitles.

Delphine stuns her rural community by moving to Paris where she quickly gets swept up in the feminist movement and falls in love with the sophisticated activist Carole. Through the love story between two women who must struggle against homophobia and class divisions, director Catherine Corsini presents a gripping portrait of an age of political and social ferment. Summertime also has a lightness befitting both the newfound freedoms and occasional zaniness of the urban seventies.
