'Summer Solstice' Arrives on Digital, VOD April 16

SUMMER SOLSTICE is a sequel to the worldwide, best-selling, romantic author Rosamunde Pilcher’s “Winter Solstice.” From the fertile imagination of John Goldsmith comes this companion piece about the further lives of the characters a year after their first appearance. It also celebrates an enchanting return to the beautiful, wild, landscapes of Scotland. Much has happened since the various couples first came together. Elfrida (Sinéad Cusack) and Oscar (Jan Niklas) have taken up residence together and are dealing with the aftermath of the death of Oscar’s wife and daughter. Meanwhile Carrie (Lara-Joy Körner) and Sam (Jason Durr) find their relationship coming under pressure when the seductive writer Alexia (Jacqueline Bisset) tries to band with Sam and not only in a professional sense. Young couple Lucy and Rory also face the dangers of jealousy. As the different stories connect and interact with each other everyone is finally forced to show where their loyalties lie. And just how much they are willing to risk. Moving the relationships not only forward in time but also towards the next logical step, that of family like, SUMMER SOLSTICE is a masterful piece of escapist entertainment that soon captures and holds its audience. The brilliantly intertwined plot unites all the characters in a greater context. You cannot help but want to be drawn into their world, and to stay there. Because happiness is not just finding the person of your dreams, it’s also keeping them.
