Summer Lovers (1982)
So this film was…interesting. It deals with a young couple that goes to Greece. Bombarded with culture, mainly nude beaches, Michael (Peter Gallagher) decides to sleep with Lina (who isn’t his girlfriend). Naturally this brings up some issues. Eventually what happens is Michael, Cathy (Daryl Hannah), and Lina wind up having a threesome relationship. And when this gets rocky both Cathy and Michael are hurt. They are all young, in love, and having a good time. This film explores the boundaries of love and fun and naturally ethics. In the end it all works out and you are kind of routing for the three of them. Like I said it was an interesting film. It isn’t a must see by any means, but it isn’t awful. It feels long in the beginning, but eventually the pace gets going. If you have nothing to do on a rainy day give it a watch and see what you think.
