Based on real life events, Summer of '67 brings to life the turbulent times of the sixties and the struggles faced by the men and women impacted by the Vietnam War. Young wife and mother Milly (Rachel Schrey) is forced to live with her mother-in-law while her husband Gerald (Cameron Gilliam) is away on the USS Forrestal. Kate (Bethany Davenport) must choose between Peter (Christopher Dalton) her high school sweetheart and Van (Sam Brooks) her new hippie boyfriend. Ruby Mae (Sharonne Lanier) finally finds true love with Reggie (Jerrold Edwards) only to have him whisked away by the draft. Each woman faces the question of whether or not their man will return, and even if he does, will life as they know it ever be the same?
Period pieces are expensive, so the fact that "Summer of '67" manages to feel authentic to the era on an indie budget is truly impressive. Much of this comes down to the gorgeous, sweeping wide shots and a soundtrack that is both true to the times and simply enjoyable. Together with the subject matter, a modern take on the domestic ramifications of the Vietnam War in America, Sharon Wilharm crafts a character study that captures a moment in history through intimacy rather than scope.
