With director Jordan Vogt-Roberts‘ dramedy The Kings of Summer (formerly Toy’s House) opening May 31st, CBS Films has provided us with four clips. The plot centers on Joe (Nick Robinson), Patrick (Gabriel Basso), and Biaggio (Moises Arias), three teenagers who are fed up with their parents and decide to live in a house they build in the woods. Reported missing, the boys enjoy an idyllic summer until their friendship begins to strain from mistrust and jealousy. The film landed great reviews at Sundance, and I can tell you it’s definitely worth seeing, as it’s a very unique coming of age story with some great performances. The film also stars Nick Offerman, Alison Brie and Megan Mullally. Hit the jump to watch the clips, and look for some exclusive video interviews with the cast and Vogt-Roberts during the week of release.
Here’s the official synopsis of The Kings of Summer:
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.
