Joe Toy is struggling under the weight of his over-bearing single father Frank; his rules, curfews and sanctions are suffocating him as his independence is slowly quashed day by day during his summer vacation. In a bid for the first taste of freedom in his life, he grabs his best friend Patrick Keenan, an equally suppressed teenage boy, and takes him on a trip to the woods where he shows him where they will build their own house free from any kind of parental strain. Tagging along is a weird and unpredictable kid named Biaggio who they're too afraid to reject, and who thinks up an idea of a kidnapping to explain their dramatic runaway to their worried parents. While they struggle to live off the land and take care of themselves, their friendships are tested as they discover just how difficult it is to be independent, parents or no parents.
This coming-of-age comedy has been directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts ('Mash Up', 'Single Dads') and written by Chris Galletta in his feature film screenwriting debut. With its sincere message about growing up and the true nature of independence, 'The Kings Of Summer' serves to be one of the most touching movies of the summer. It will arrive in the US very soon on May 31st 2013.
