Run Time: 92 minutes
Sixteen-year-old Jamie is eager to spend a carefree summer hanging out with her friends. But when her grandmother reveals a series of shocking secrets on her deathbed, Jamie and her family are left scrambling to make sense of it all. While her parents are consumed by their own resulting dramas, Jamie finds herself alone with a lot of questions. And she turns to drinking, partying, and sexual exploration to escape. Of course, there’s a cute boy who has all the makings of a perfect summer fling…. But after she discovers he’s about to be ordained as a priest, things only get more complicated. SUMMER ‘03 is a coming-of-age dramedy that explores family dysfunction, teenage angst, heartache, and self-discovery. Complete with bulky cell phones, AIM messenger, and Harry Potter books, a film set in the early 2000s is now a nostalgic period piece. Feel old yet? —G.S.
