I was expecting a kind of Stand By Me from this film, and whilst it is a coming of age story set in the woods, that's really where the similarity ends. The Kings of Summer is a kind of surreal tale, with some pretty dark humour. The style of the film gives it an indie style, almost like Brick [Blu-ray] in it's look and feel. A thoroughly enjoyable watch, that will make you laugh. It's no blockbuster, but if it makes it to your collection, you'll always want to keep it. Totally recommended.
