kings of summerMarketed 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.

    that is really cool that they would have the nerve to do that and that they would actually go through with that.
