Excerpt: Another blind-buy for me. I had a good time and I'll definitely re-visit it again. The third kid is so weird, it's funny. If you like nature, you should like this one. PQ: I didn't think it was overly grainy at all. The PQ was very pleasant to the eye.
Excerpt: I have a little bit of a bias: I'm a sucker for coming of age stories (The Way Way Back, Adventureland, Perks of Being a Wallflower, etc...). I enjoyed the movie. Not all of the humor succeeded but overall it was an enjoyable film.
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.
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.
