The Kings of Summer


Year: 2013
Country: USA

Premiering to rave reviews at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, THE KINGS OF SUMMER is a unique coming-of-age story about three teenagers who, in the ultimate act of independence, decide to spend their summer building a house in the woods. 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.
