PFS Sneak Peek: The Kings of Summer

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.

After the screening, Robinson, Basso, and Arias joined us for a special Q&A hosted by PFS Executive Director Andrew Greenblatt. The actors took questions from the crowd about their favorite scenes in the film and taking improv classes to prepare for the shoot. The trio expounded on the hilarity of working with Nick Offerman (who Robinson comments was exactly like Ron Swanson), and Megan Mullally.

The Kings of Summer opens this summer and will be co-presented by PFS at Awesome Fest on May 29 along with Stand By Me. Click here for details and tickets.
