    Premiering to rave reviews at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, THE KINGS OF SUMMER is a unique coming-of-age comedy about three teenage friends – Joe (Nick Robinson), Patrick (Gabriel Basso) and the eccentric and unpredictable Biaggio (Moises Arias) - who, in the ultimate act of independence, decide to spend their summer building a house in the woods and living off the land. Free from their parents’ rules, their idyllic summer quickly becomes a test of friendship as each boy learns to appreciate the fact that family - whether it is the one you’re born into or the one you create – is something you can't run away from.

    Movie fans! This coming of age comedy is about finding freedom by building a dream house in the middle of nowhere. What did you do as a teenager to chase that idea of freedom and adulthood?

    Honestly, freedom for me was a ridiculous chicken restaurant that closed down after three months of me working there. I loved being shoved into trash cans, dancing the funky chicken for my paycheck, and throwing opened honey packets at my co-workers. We had very few customers (which may explain the closing thing), but my first job got me away from a home I hated. I boxed that store up when it closed and then I opened it back up four years later.

    I worked at a summer camp - it was just the right combination of freedom and responsibility. You have to make sure the campers stay safe, but you also hope to teach them a bit of independence... and something neat that they can brag about to their friends in the mess hall

    One summer my two buddies and I decided to get away from home and go on a road trip across the US. We were gone for a month and half, and had the most fun just not knowing what the next stop would bring... from hiking in Boulder to pool parties in Fresno to hanging out in a teepee in Austin, we had a lot of great adventures and made many new friends.

    when you got a fast car you think you've got everything. I'd say a good majority of men can recall the day we sold/wrecked/traded our initial idea of freedom in for adulthood.

    Go on a road trip with the boys. The destination didn't really matter; it was the experience of getting there.
