NMHS Film Review of the Week: The Kings of Summer

9222fc074163bb31c4ff76c1ad453f86The months of hot school-less days may be over but they will forever live on in The Kings of Summer, a movie directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts.

The film follows 15 year old Joe Toy (Nick Robinson) who is fed up with his father, Frank (Nick Offerman). That’s something we can all relate to, right? Right. Except we wouldn’t decide to run away and build a shack in the woods to show that we are, in fact, men. But alas, Joe and his buddies Patrick (Gabrial Basso) and Biaggio (Moises Arias) do just this. The three enjoy their time alone in the woods until an argument rises and one of the boys lands himself in the hospital with a snake bite.

Despite its slow spots the film is worth the watch. The cast is full of comedians, the scenery is gorgeous, and the soundtrack is one to die for. It really is the perfect film to watch at any time no matter what season it is.

The Kings of Summer is available to rent from Redbox, or purchase from I-tunes or your local DVD distributer.
