Coming of age films are relatively rare but they’re as good as they are rare. Something about weird kids running away to build a house in a forest screams funny quirky indie film, that’s exactly what this is and it doesn’t disappoint. The Kings of Summer is a great and quirky coming-of-age indie movie full of charm and strong performances. Nick Robinson and Nick Offerman play a great father and son duo and hit big laughs and deep feels multiple times. The film is very funny but also has real drama to its story and the actors involved will surprise you in their talent. Equal parts comedy and drama it’s a really good ride, I hope you all get a chance to see it. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.
“Yes, I experienced a childhood on the planet Earth. I’ve heard the story of the boy who cried wolf.”
Full disclosure I loved the first one and this trailer review is going to be super biased. The trailer is hysterical and I love the way it simply tells a little of the story rather than giving away spoilers. I know what it’s about and want to see it and they did that without me even seeing the villain or anything more than a few very brief scenes. We clearly still get that weird rap music that somehow totally works in this film. Steve Carell is back to play Gru and Kristen Wiig should be great. We also get Al Pacino playing the main villain which obviously should be really fun in this type of film. Below are the newest trailer and my favourite scenes, so please comment at the end.
