The Ivy Film Festival presents an advanced screening of The Kings of Summer tonight at 8 p.m. This “unforgettable coming-of-age comedy” is a 2013 Sundance Selection, and made a ton of Top-Ten-Must-See Sundance film lists. The film’s official release date is May 31, 2013. It’s projected to be a huge summer hit.
The Kings of Summer is a comedic tale of three teenage boys who try to make a home for themselves in the woods, Jean Craighead George-style. The film features comedy stars Nick Offerman from Parks and Recreation, Alison Brie from Community, and Megan Mullalley from Will and Grace and the equally as important “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter” commercials. Some of you may also remember Moises Arias, the wily Rico from Hannah Montana, and if you don’t, here’s a video of him doing the “Stanky Leg.” He plays one of the boys in this film, alongside Gabriel Basso and Nick Robinson.
For those of you who saw The Way, Way Back earlier this week (or heard every person in attendance raving afterwards), you should trust the IFF’s judgment when they say that this movie is going to kill it. Doors open at 7:45 p.m. See ya there!
