Yes another predictable coming of age film arrived this year.
Teenage boy has family drama, boy runs away, boy realizes he is not yet grown and still needs family, boy runs home with tail between legs.
Although this theme has been done before, or more accurately is done at least 20 times a year, Kings of summer offers a fresh comedic outlook on the coming of age genre with a burst of wit which is mainly due to Nick and Megans dry performances. Moises Arias is a solid contributor also.
It’s predictable and fumbles at the end but endearing when all is said and done.
5 out of 10.
