The Kings of Summer



Yesterday I was lucky enough to see a preview showing for an amazing movie called The Kings of Summer. Luckily the movie did not need time to warm up. The audience were screaming with laughter from the first second and the laughs kept coming. The movie is about three clueless teenage boys who run away from home one claustrophobic summer, build their own house in the woods, try to hunt rabbits, grow their own terrible moustaches and try to get  to First Base with the Ladeez with little or no success.

This is a very insightful look into the lives of teenagers and it takes you back to those heady days when you thought you knew it all and were convinced your parents were old farts. Back  to the days when you were coursing with hormones that made you either tongue-tied or say really gauche things to the opposite sex at discos like "I like your jumper."

If you want to scream with laughter make sure you check out The Kings of Summer which opens in USA this Friday. Let me know if it tickled your funny bone! And check out this amazing infographic with scenes from the movie.

That sounds like a documentary about my idiot youth. It's already making waves here in NYC. People are talking about it. I think it did really well on the festival circuit.

Sounds like my kind of movie and the kind of teenage-hood I wish I'd had.

And here I just stopped by to see if you were still blogging after all these years...

I will take your advice and see this movie. But only in secret during working hours. There always so much better when you're getting paid to watch them...

Sure does sound like my kinda movie, Emma. I'll have to see if I can find it here in Pennsylvania.

I dropped by to say "Enough of the picky Foodistas!" "Viva la Revolution!" as I just read your post at Food Stories and I just had to pop by and tell you how much I enjoyed it.

Thank you so much for sharing, Louise

I recommend Son of Rambo if you haven't seen it already.

A delightful, funny and touching film capturing '80s Britain faithfully.

I look forward to seeing this one on your recommendation.
