Storyline

Benjamin Bentley is an openly gay 17 year-old boy in Houston, Texas, with not so many friends. He suddenly becomes so infatuated with Tim Wyman, a handsome, popular - apparently straight - newcomer. When a not-so-accident brings them together, their love story begins. They start a secret relationship and build a world of their own. Something Like Summer is a coming of age story of true long-lasting love, about insecurities, social pressure, heartache and love again that spans 12 years. It's about being true to yourself, letting your heart lead the way and discovering the strength of love. Written by Philip Palovcik

Slightly disappointing
12 September 2017 | by hobojointSee all my reviews

I have read all of the something like books and was naturally excited to see the movie was coming out and waited what seemed to be an eternity to see it. Sadly to say I shouldn't have waited. This movie failed to incorporate any kind of value from the book. I felt disconnected and had i not read the book, would have been totally lost as nothing is connected coherently. The movie reminds me of some kid show with a bunch of preppy guys out a catalog and no clear purpose. The movie also failed to display any kind of intimacy or emotionality expected in this work. And what is with all the singing?? I literally skipped through it as it was long drawn out and irrelevant. Overall I would have to rate this movie as a failure. Giving 4 for effort.

David Santos, call me.
