Movie Info

Set in Cape Cod over one scorching summer, Hot Summer Nights follows Daniel (Timothée Chalamet), a shy out-of-towner who gets in over his head flipping weed with the neighborhood rebel (Alex Roe) while pursuing his new business partner's enigmatic sister (Maika Monroe). With a hurricane looming in the wings, tensions rise against a backdrop of drive-ins, arcades, and crashed parties as the stakes (and temperatures) grow ever higher.


Critic Reviews for Hot Summer Nights

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

[Elijah Bynum] solicits strong performances from his young cast - especially Timothée Chalamet as the teenage fish out of water - and blends humor and increasingly dark sensibility to good effect.

Visually atmospheric but tonally all over the place, Hot Summer Nights, a first feature by Elijah Bynum, has much to appreciate but ultimately possesses the sampler-platter vibe of a director's demo reel.

March 15, 2017 | Full Review…

Elijah Bynum's directorial debut, Hot Summer Nights, is a brazen anti-coming-of-age thriller that oozes with all the right confidence, chutzpah, and passion.

March 20, 2017 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Hot Summer Nights is a sneaky slice of dark Americana, a gorgeously shot, hard truth coming-of-age tale rendered through a lens of innocence and grandeur, a sexy 20th century fairy tale.

Like a teen New England Goodfellas. That's not to discredit Bynum's own style. He wouldn't earn the Goodfellas comparison unless the style was self-assured and expressing character, and it is.
