Story


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.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..fourteen is a tricky age to convey, but director Jordan Vogt-Roberts and writer Chris Galletta nail it, with wonderful absurdist humor..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..The Kings of Summer sails right down the middle, safely tacking between sitcom setups and grandiose MGMT-scored montages without forming its own distinctive feel..”
by Eric Hynes [Time Out New York]
“..while plot-wise it's a little slender, not to mention heavy on studied eccentricities, Jordan Vogt-Roberts' debut feature also has a generous share of rewards..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]
