Vicki's making eyes at you man. Go talk to her. She's so into it.
There's no point in me talking to her anyways.
Joe, I'm gay.
Are you sure?
Yes, my lungs fill up every time the seasons change.
That's not being gay, Biaggio.
Pretty sure that's Cystic Fibrosis.

'The Kings of Summer' was a nice coming-of-age film about 3 teenage boys who want independence so decide to build a house in the woods away from the real world.
I really like the plot and the actors all done a very good job. The 3 boys were believable and extremely likable. The supporting cast were also very good. The house they build looks brilliant. The story is a lot about friendship which is really nice. There was some moments that made you smile but it wasn't overly funny, I would class it as more of a drama film.
Overall it was an enjoyable film, a really meaningful story which is easy to relate to. Definitely worth a watch if you want something to cheer you up.
