The Kings of Summer

See Showtime Listings for This Week

“Wise, touching, and often wildly funny.” - Nell Minnow, Chicago Sun-Times

“A stylish and very funny teenage coming-of-age story graced with surreal fringes and a mysteriously hushed core.” – Ty Burr, Boston Globe

“A warm and affectionate comedy about that last great summer when you're 13 or 14 and you don't realize just how much your life is about to change.” – Renee Rodriquez, Miami Herald

 

Premiering to rave reviews at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, The Kings of Summer is a unique coming-of-age comedy about three teenage friends — Joe (Nick Robinson), Patrick (Gabriel Basso) and the eccentric and unpredictable Biaggio (Moises Arias) — who, in the ultimate act of independence, decide to spend their summer building a house in the woods and living off the land. 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. The Kings of Summer, director Jordan Vogt-Roberts' feature film debut, also stars Alison Brie, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally. (Dir. by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, 2013, USA, 95 mins., Rated R, CBS Films) Digital
