The Kings of Summer

I hope you all had a good weekend! It always goes so fast.

I saw a good movie this weekend. So good, that I have to tell you all about it.

It is a little Indie film that premiered to great ratings at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. It was filmed in Ohio.

Plot: Joe Toy (Nick Robinson), on the verge of adolescence, finds himself increasingly frustrated by the attempts of his single father, Frank (Nick Offerman), to manage his life. Declaring his freedom once and for all, he escapes to a clearing in the woods with his best friend, Patrick (Gabriel Basso), and a strange kid named Biaggio (Moisés Arias). He announces that they are going to build a house there, free from responsibility and parents. Once their makeshift abode is finished, the three young men find themselves masters of their own destiny, alone in the woods.

This movie is funny and entertaining. The boys cast in their roles are FANTAASTIC. Patrick’s parents are amazingly funny and so awkward.

I highly recommended going to see it if it is in a theater near you. Let me know what you think!
