The Kings of Summer — A simple story, but a meaningful one — 8*/10

The Kings of Summer is a tale of friendship and exploration of youth.

The good. Very interesting story. Sound characters. Well paced scenario, with nice story telling ploys. Great, yet simple, score. Beautiful photography. Solid choice in editing. Realistic dialogs and interactions. A number of funny scenes.

The actors. The boys are excellently played, but I have to tip my hat to Moises Arias for pulling off his hilarious and peculiar portrayal. You'll see what I mean. The parents are great too.

The bad. It is highly unlikely that three boys would have been able to build that house, as simple as it is, or get the material for it, but I guess this is where suspension of disbelief comes in. The end is just a tiny bit quick, but it's still well made.

The ugly. Nothing.

The result. A great tale, should be seen by everyone.
