Story


The year is 1985. Rad Miracle is a shy 13-year-old white kid who's obsessed with two things: ping pong and hip hop. During his family's annual summer vacation to Ocean City, Maryland, Rad makes a new best friend, experiences his first real crush, becomes the target of rich, racist local bullies, and finds an unexpected mentor in his outcast next-door neighbor. "Ping Pong Summer" is about that time in your life when you're treated like an alien by everyone around you, even though you know deep down you're as funky fresh as it gets.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..there's something charming here-Ping Pong Summer itself feels like an underdog-and there are retro touches that children of the '80s will smile at (remember smelling the liner notes of cassettes?). But ultimately, those are too few and far between..”
by Carla Sosenko [Time Out New York]
“.."Ping Pong Summer'' certainly nails the era, right down to a lengthy pan across a none-too-appealing dinner buffet..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
“..it's clumsy and bumbling but disarmingly sweet in spirit..”
by Soren Anderson [Seattle Times]
