It’s time to go back to when you were just a kid. You just made it to high school and you have a whole new world ahead of you. You have your best friends, and of course you have that one girl that catches your eye and she’s all you ever think about. It’s also that time, when you are starting to rebel against your parents and their weird, but loving ways. Well, what if you have had enough of their crazy antics and decide to runaway and build your own place, deep in the woods, and live like kings, with no rules but your own.

In The Kings of Summer, we get to see what happens when you leave the comforts of home and go out to live on your own, with just your close friends nearby. The story follows two teenagers, Joe (Nick Robinson, Melissa and Joey) and Patrick (Gabriel Basson, Super 8), both of whom are sick of their parents. Joe, dealing with the loss of his mother and a father Frank (Nick Offerman, Parks and Recreation) he can’t seem to connect with, and Patrick, whose parents (Megan Mullally, Will and Grace l Marc Evan Jackson, Suit Up, are a little too happy and nice at times.

Super 8Super 8
Directed by J.J. Abrams
Starring: Kyle Chandler, Joel Courtney, Elle Fanning, Riley Griffiths, Gabriel Basso, Ryan Lee, Zach Mills, Ron Eldard
Release Date: June 10, 2011

 
In the general dismay of cinema during these hot summer months there is a movie hopeful enough to fly upon the road toward originality. It despises most stupidity and harbors and displays a profound contempt for the immense reluctance directors and screenwriters exhibit when trying to craft a “refreshing” summer film. Super 8 swerves sharply in its walk, detaching itself from the summer films that find it a necessity to stir its audience into a panic via overwhelming action scenes, and passes other uninspiring films because it never shows a reluctance to engage with the consciousness, sensibilities, and behaviors found evident in all children. By engaging itself in this childhood realm the film approaches an innocence unrealized in mainstream cinema and doesn’t hesitate in grasping it. The results are penetrating, illuminating, and ultimately moving.
 
Director and screenwriter J.J. Abrams is working in rarefied air for the bulk of his third feature (Mission Impossible III and Star Trek his other features), exclusively occupying Super 8 in a space where only Mr. Steven Spielberg, this film’s producer, successfully prevailed in films such as E.T. and The Goonies. Embarking on a journey to capture the essential emotions found thriving in children is a task that is difficult to exactly pinpoint and to make it engaging for an adult crowd is even more difficult.
