The Kings of Summer

Joe, Patrick and the eccentric and unpredictable Biaggio - 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.

June 7, 2013 - Boston.com - Ty Burr, Globe Staff

What if Henry David Thoreau moved to Walden not to get away from civilization but to get away from his parents? That’s the conceit, more or less, behind “The Kings of Summer,” a stylish and very funny teenage coming-of-age story graced with surreal fringes and a mysteriously hushed core. A disaffected Ohio 15-year-old (Nick Robinson) drops off the suburban grid and, with two friends (Gabriel Basso, Moises Arias), builds his own house in the woods. The dialogue is often explosively funny and director Jordan Vogt-Roberts finds an easy niche between naturalism and style. It’s small human comedy that touches on bigger things, but then has the good sense to back away. With Nick Offerman and Megan Mulally, both in fine farcical fettle.
