Summary: 'Kings of Summer' is a different breed of adolescent 'coming-of-age' film. The charm lies in it's offbeat nature, with an emphasis on quirky comedy and frank characters. It constantly serves up good irreverent humor. I laughed all throughout. The drama plays second fiddle, but is no less effective. I feel that the ending slides into predictable territory and is not as emotionally satifying as similar films I've seen.
Excerpt: The Kings of Summer (2013) R Three teenage boys (Nick Robinson, Gabriel Basso, Moises Arias) decide to get away from their rather strange and controlling parents by running away to build a house in the middle of the woods. This is a great film for the summer. It’s funny, moving and full of fine performances.
