Director Jordan Vogt-RobertsYear 2013Genre(s) Dramas
Joe Toy is not so different from your average hormone-ravaged adolescent boy; he, like many teenagers, struggles with his limits of independence as his father Frank, who brings Joe up alone, insists on keeping control over Joe's life as he tries in vain to gain a little freedom. In a bid for autonomy and liberation, he enlists the help of his best friend Patrick Keenan and their peculiar acquaintance Biaggio to help him build a home in the woods during their summer vacation and thus become entirely self-sufficient, living off the land. However, tempers rise and friendships are put to the test as they discover that true independence is almost impossible as even the kind of family you choose becomes just as restricting as the one you were born with.
'The Kings of Summer' is an upcoming coming-of-age comedy originally entitled 'Toy's House' directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts ('Mash Up', 'Single Dads') and written by Chris Galletta in his movie debut. It is a hilarious and vibrant film with a very real message about growing up and the meaning of freedom and it is part of the official selection for the independent Sundance Film Festival 2013. 'The Kings of Summer' will hit the US this Spring on May 31st 2013.
