Last week, PFS Members got a chance to see indie hit The Kings of Summer. The film, which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, revolves around three teenage boys who have had enough of overbearing, unappreciative parents and decide to take to the woods. Reminiscent of the classic Stand By Me, the boys move to the forest, where they build a makeshift cabin and live off the land. Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts and starring Nick Robinson, Gabriel Basso, Moises Arias, Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, and Allison Brie, The Kings of Summer is a hilarious and fun exploration of adolescence and what is means to become a man, whether that is standing up for your friends or eating only what you’ve hunted.

I’m certain Patton Oswalt(Spence from King of Queens) never thought he’d ever get a chance to have a love scene with Charlize Theron. His romance with Rachel Dratch on the TV series was most likely more romantic action than he’d ever thought to see as a character actor.
On Sunday, PFS Members got a sneak peek at Machine Gun Preacher, starring Gerard Butler and based on the inspiring life of Sam Childers. The film follows Childers through his personal transformation and his journey to Africa to help children orphaned by the Sudanese Civil War.
