Mike Binder places his well-acted comedy in the familiar turf of other "reunion" films (Return of Secaucus Seven, Big Chill), adding one element to the genre: Instead of indoor weekend, the regrouping is set in a beloved camp of the 1972 summer
If you like to go to weddings of humdrum people you don't know, you won't want to miss Indian Summer.
This is a story more interested in tone and mood than in big plot points.
A truly enjoyable movie, with a truly wonderful ensemble
...with this group of actors (including Sam Raimi, of all people, as a clumsy handyman) it's hard to ever really get bored.
Big Chill-ish camp reunion movie with some lovely performances.
Indian Summer is a feel-good comedy about eight friends who are reunited with each other at a camp.
