Scenes from classic counterculture cinema come to mind, in which our two (possibly in love) protagonists break from a particularly stuffy family function to find glamour in being overdressed in more rustic surroundings. The sand, the waves, the grass and old vacation homes become the improvised set for a flirtation between fantasy and reality.
