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. The Kings of Summer, director Jordan Vogt-Roberts' feature film debut, also stars Alison Brie (TV's "Mad Men"), Mary Lynn Rajskub ("24"), Nick Offerman ("Parks and Recreation") and Megan Mullally (Smashed, "Will & Grace").
