Storyline

The Newlyn School of artists flourished at the beginning of the 20th Century and the film focuses on the wild and bohemian Lamorna Group, which included Alfred Munnings and Laura and Harold Knight. The incendiary anti-Modernist Munnings, now regarded as one of Britain's most sought-after artists, is at the centre of the complex love triangle, involving aspiring artist Florence Carter-Wood and Gilbert Evans, the land agent in charge of the Lamorna Valley estate. True - and deeply moving - the story is played out against the timeless beauty of the Cornish coast, in the approaching shadow of The Great War. Written by Production

User Reviews

 
Tame and lame.
22 July 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The film focuses on the bohemian Lamorna Group, which was part of the Newlyn School of artists whop based themselves in Cornwall. The unpredictable Munnings develops a relationship with Florence who initially was perceived as likely to be Gilbert's partner. The marriage soon falls apart and Florence commits suicide.

For a supposedly wild, bohemian group they don't seem to live a particularly hedonistic, pleasurable lifestyle and the film isn't particularly enjoyable itself. Some of the acting and dialogue seemed stereotypical. The group may well have been more interesting than the film, which perhaps does them an injustice.
