Reel Reviews | The Kings of Summer


Cabin in the Woods

The coming-of-age story of two boys who get fed up with their lives at home and decide to make their own house and their own rules – in the woods and in the process become The Kings of Summer.

Joe Toy (Nick Robinson), on the verge of adolescence, finds himself increasingly frustrated by his single father, Frank’s (Nick Offerman) attempts to manage his life. Declaring his freedom once and for all, he escapes to a clearing in the woods with his best friend, Patrick (Gabriel Basso), and a strange kid named Biaggio (Moises Arias). He announces that they are going to build a house there, free from responsibility and parents. Once their makeshift abode is finished, the three young men find themselves masters of their own destiny, alone in the woods.

The Kings of Summer stars Nick Robinson, Gabriel Basso, Moises Arias, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie and Megan Mullally.
