Boys of Summer

Standard

It’s been a while since I’ve seen a film that truly strikes me and leaves me feeling like I can take over the world. This past week, we screened The Kings of Summer (a Grand Prize Jury nominee at this year’s Sundance) and it did just that. In the trailer, there’s a critic quote that sums up this movie part-Stand By Me and part-SuperbadAnd it’s spot on.

The carefree spirit of these three boys the film follows (Joe, Patrick and Biaggio) makes you immediately drawn to them. You sit there thinking of the someones from your past that remind you of these very characters. Which in turn, makes you so sad to see the movie’s end.

With parental roles played by Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally, you don’t know who you’re rooting more screen time for, these eccentric two or our boys of summer. The film opens May 31 and is a must see. It’s everything you want, miss and crave from summer.

Hands down my favorite scene was scored by MGMT’s “Youth.” I just wanted to relive that moment over and over and over again. Just like summer.

Heads up, the song in the trailer is super addicting. We Were Promised Jetpacks // “Keeping Warm
