"But I come from such a different world, and I’m not going to be here long."
"So, it is better to take home only Venetian glass?"
Summertime (dir. David Lean, 1955)
What appealed to me in the idea of Summertime? Loneliness. Why? Because I think that loneliness is in all of us, it is a more common emotion than love, but we speak less about it. We are ashamed of it. We think perhaps that it shows a deficiency in ourselves. That if we were more attractive, more entertaining and less ordinary we would not be lonely.
The film is about a lonely woman who falls in love, and as I know no better remedy for the complaint I hope you will find it sympathetic.
- David Lean
Linda and Ned Seton, Holiday (1938)
What’s it like to get drunk, Ned?
Well, I… how drunk?
Good and drunk!
Oh, it’s wonderful. You see, you think clear as crystal. But every move, every situation is a problem. It gets pretty interesting.
