Storyline

Miles (newcomer Tim Boardman) is a high school senior who wants nothing more than to graduate, leave his rural town and move to the city to enrol in film school. Unfortunately, Miles' father has squandered his college fund on his mistress. With no cash and staring a dead-end future right in the face, Miles searches desperately for a way out, coming across a volleyball scholarship program that exists between his high school and the well-regarded Loyola University in Chicago. The catch? The only volleyball team that exists at his school is a girls' team.

Enjoyable summer youth movie
16 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

Director Nathan Adloff, along with writing partner Justin D.M. Palmer (both of "Nate and Margarett" - 2012), present an enjoyable summer teen flick. Happy go lucky Miles (terrific relative newcomer Tim Boardman - "Wilde Wedding 2017) is coming to grips with his sexuality, while surviving a home where dad (Stephen Root - "Office Space" 1999) is estranged, and mom (Molly Shannon - TV's - "Divorce") is complacent. When dad leaves the family broke, Miles joins the HS girls volleyball team in hopes of obtaining a scholarship to college, and mom begins to live. Along with Root and Shannon, the film is filled with additional familiar character actors, including Miss Pyle ("Gone Girl), Paul Reiser (TV's "Divorce"), Ethan Phillips (TV's "Girls"), Yeardley Smith ("The Simpsons) and Anie Golden ("Orange Is the New Black"). Unforuntately, when a film is filled with so many established comedy character actors, it usually means trouble. Lucky, are all in good hands here with Adloff and Palmer, who have given each (through good writing and a sound storyline) an opportunity to present their dramatic acting chops. Every summer, a good youth film comes along to remind us that somehow we all make it through it, and MILES fits that bill perfectly.
