"The Kings of Summer" is a 2013 Sundance Film Festival dark comedy about three unhappy teenage boys who is tired of being under strict rules of their parents and decide to build a house in the woods and live off the land.

The movie begins when Kelly (Erin Moriarty) invites Joe Toy (Nick Robinson) to a party, but his single father Frank (Nick Offerman) refuses to let him go because of a pre-planned dinner with his new girlfriend and family game night. Joe decides to defy his father and climb out his bedroom window and go to the party. At the party Joe meets Kelly and is smitten with her. But when he returns home and is talking to Kelly on the phone, his father grabs the phone and grounds him.

Joe decides he is tired of dealing with his father, convinces his two friends Patrick (Gabriel Basso) and eccentric Biaggio (Moises Arias) to run away with him, build a house and live in the woods. They want to be free of responsibility and be real men.

Kelly eventually gets in the way of the two best friends, therefore, their friendship causes tension. The relationships never fully develop as you are left hanging. But in the end, they learn that family is something you can't run away from.

The movie is directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts and lasts 93 minutes. Scenes for "The Kings of Summer" were shot in Cleveland, Chagrin Falls, Ohio, Wilmington, N.C. and at the South Pointe Hospital in Warrensville Heights, Ohio.

Look for it now in select theaters nationwide.
