Marketed as the next Superbad, this movie is more simply the next summer classic.
Three 15-year-old boys in suburban Ohio stumble on a wooded area not far from home and decide to abide there for the summer, living off the land and off the grid. Their hunter-gatherer lifestyle quickly turns into more shopper-gatherer, or bargain-hunter; and of course the communal wilderness friendship is tested when girls show up.
Free from their parents’ rules, their idyllic summer quickly becomes a test of friendship as each boy learns to appreciate the fact that family – whether it is the one you’re born into or the one you create – is something you can’t run away from.
Kings of Summer will resonate with anyone longing to look back through the gates of childhood.
