  • Lean's lushly photographed classic about an old maid (Hepburn) who falls in love for the first time while visiting Venice. American tourist Jane Hudson's lack of romantic experience makes her insatiably vulnerable to the lush beauty of Italy, and leaves her wide open to the charms of a handsome Italian man (Brazzi). So intoxicated is Jane by their whirlwind affair that she is reluctant to relinquish her new love, even after discovering that he is married and has a family. A touching performance by Hepburn and stunning Technicolor scenes of Venice make SUMMERTIME an enchanting classic.

  • Critic Reviews
    4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] romantic drama starring Katharine Hepburn at the height of her powers and Venice, never more bewitchingly filmed than by cinematographer Jack Hildyard..."
    Empire

    "[Lean] manages to bring a depth to the storytelling that you don't find in most picture-postcard Venetian romances."
