Storyline

In this story of sexual discovery and the resulting fallout that might happen within a family, a reunion vacation becomes unforgettable when two teenage boys discover their feelings for each other, only to be found out by their friends and relatives. When the relationship is discovered, so is another startling piece of information, that one of the families had previously institutionalized their son for reparative therapy because of his homosexuality.

David: Sorry? About what?
Seth: [sighs] I'm sorry that you ever got involved with me. I'm sorry your brother saw us. I'm sorry everything is such a mess right now.
David: It's not your fault. It's just the way life is, right? Look, I don't know what to think about all this, Seth. I don't. Everything I know, everything I've been told, says it's wrong. But what happened the other night it felt right. It did. I'm so screwed up right now.

And then came mediocrity.
23 April 2003 | by (NYC 'Burbs) – See all my reviews

I have to feel a bit of sadness for the producers, cast and crew of 10% Productions "And Then Came Summer." I mean, their hearts were all in the right place... they wanted to make a nice, light, coming-of-age story about two boys who, very naturally, fall in love. The idea is sweet, and the intentions are good. The outcome, however, is a vastly different matter. Unfortunately, "And Then Came Summer" falls into just about every trap that face amateur filmmakers face. The script is an unsubstantial mess, with no build, no interesting dialogue and non-existant character development. The acting is really poor all the way around - either totally wooden or completely overdone, often times both in the same scene. The camerawork is attrocious; certain scenes were filmed so ineptly that it literally made the film difficult to watch. The inclusion of Anthony J. Domingues as the younger brother is perhaps the worst casting mistake in the history of Hollywood... this kid looks not a the thing like his father and older brother (was he adopted or something? If so, the script never gets around to mentioning it.) And, most of all, the film's treatment of women is borderline offensive... the caring aunt is a pie-baking marm so sweet that I almost lapsed into diabetic shock, and the brief appearance by the gossipy neighbor is so dense it's nearly laughable. It used to be enough to simply make a "gay movie." But (thankfully) there are more and more films in the gay genre being made. This ups the ante, and slapping together a film like "And Then Came Summer" just doesn't cut it anymore. Budget be damned, a film needs to be ABOUT something. It needs to still be well-acted and directed professionally. And it needs to draw in the audience with a script and characters that are pertinent and revelatory. This films tries, but, sadly, achieves none of these benchmarks. It's too bad... I really wanted to like this film!
