Set in Glasgow, God Help The Girl follows Eve (the beautiful Emily Browning) who escapes from hospital where she is dealing with emotional issues and an eating disorder. She escapes because of her love of music and all she wants to do is attend a concert, with people her own age and get involved in their delicate and twisted lives.
Christopher Menaul's Summer in February is based upon the 1995 novel by Jonathan Smith, which concentrates on a group of artists called the Lamorna Group, who were based in Cornwall during the early 20th century. This bohemian group included Alfred Munnings (played by a very out of place Dominic Cooper), who in 1944 was elected president of the Royal Academy of Art, Laura Knight (a scene stealing Hattie Morahan) and Harold Knight (Shaun Dingwall). In their own private world, these artists and their friends lived by their own rules, finding art in everything they looked at and always working to make sure they get better and better. But that was during the day, when the evening's came, the drinks would be served and everyone would enjoy themselves and their lives.
