Movie recommendation - My summer of love

My summer of love (2005)

Two 16-year olds spending one long, hot summer together in Yorkshire.

Mona (Natalie Press) is a tough Northern girl whose spiky exterior hides an untapped intelligence and a yearning for something beyond the emptiness of her daily life.

Tamsin (Emily Blunt) is well educated, cynical and spoiled, and, unlike Mona, incapable of love.

At first Mona and Tamsin's distinctly opposite cultures, backgrounds and characters cause them not to understand or trust each other, but gradually these differences lead to mutual fascination and attraction. Added into the volatile mix is Phil who, despite his troubled past, has now found divine love which he hopes will save himself and Mona.

This movie will not suit the conventional, but it for sure kept me spellbound from start to finish!!
In my opinion, stumbling into such a little gem is quite rare - so don't miss it ;)
