One little coming-of-age film has been taking the indie circuit by storm and that film is Jordan Vogt-Roberts‘ The Kings of Summer. The film follows a trio of boys as they escape from their parents and boring day-to-day lives to build and live in their own house out in the middle of the woods. There they’ll most likely learn the values of life, being independent and just how important friends and family really are.
It sounds like my kind of film and I absolutely cannot wait to check it out at the 2013 Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival, which is where it will be playing on April 26th at 7pm. Grab your tickets right here if you haven’t already.
Today we’ve got the first full-length trailer for the film, which hints at the light comedy and surefire adventures that will hopefully fill up the film’s running time. I usually love coming-of-age stories because they are relatable, fun and almost always come with a great message by the time the ending credits come up.
Hopefully The Kings of Summer is worthy of all of the praise that is has been receiving from various festivals. Check back for my review!
The Kings of Summer opens everywhere else on May 31st, 2013.

Premiering to rave reviews at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, THE KINGS OF SUMMER is a unique coming-of-age comedy about three teenage friends – Joe (Nick Robinson), Patrick (Gabriel Basso) and the eccentric and unpredictable Biaggio (Moises Arias) – who, in the ultimate act of independence, decide to spend their summer building a house in the woods and living off the land. Free from their parents’ rules, their idyllic summer quickly becomes a test of friendship as each boy learns to appreciate the fact that family – whether it is the one you’re born into or the one you create – is something you can’t run away from.
