    The Kings of Summer

    The Kings of Summer (2013)

    Having one of the most loveable casts in any coming-of-age stories of the past decade, "The Kings of Summer" embraces it's strong title and really makes itself the King of indie films of the 2013 year. I loved every second of this film, from it's Into the Wild feel, mixed with extremely funny humour from the writer of "(500) Days of Summer," this is not a film to miss. As two boys, along with another unknown kid who tags along, they stray away from their families and wonder into the woods to build there own home for the summer. Learning how to be real men, these boys learn the values of life, love, and the things that really matter in life. Every shot in this film seems planned in every aspect and the Cinematography is really what will pull you into the film right off the bat, along with some unique editing choices. It's a very nice, fun and heartwarming film that I will remember for a very long time, and is easily one of the best films I've seen in 2013.
