For our second Streamers Film Club movie we’ve gone for something a little more off the beaten track.
The Kings of Summer (2013, 95mins, rated 15) is a wonderful independent coming-of-age comedy drama that seemed to go under the radar in the UK. Premiering to rave reviews at Sundance Film Festival and evoking classics like Stand by me it’s the perfect antidote for anyone suffering some end of summer blues.
Once again, you can find it here where it’s currently free to watch for existing Amazon Prime members. Enjoy.

The official blurb reads:
In the ultimate act of independence, three teenage friends – Joe (NickRobinson), Patrick (Gabriel Basso) and the eccentric and unpredictable Biaggio (Moises Arias) – 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.
