The Kings of Summer portrays the summer after freshman year for best friends, Joe Toy (Nick Robinson) and Patrick Keenan (Gabriel Basso). Each boy has issues that heíd just as soon avoid at home. Walking home from a party, Joe stumbles across a secluded spot in the woods and decides itís perfect for a tree house. He convinces Patrick to build it with him ó a hidden place where they can escape from their parents. Biaggio (Moises Arias), a quirky outcast, endears himself to Joe and Patrick and invites himself along. Once the tree house is built, the boys secretly leave home to live in it. This visually fresh coming-of-age story develops into a test of friendship as each boy learns that family ó whether itís the one youíre born into or the one you create ó is something you canít run away from. Also starring Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, and Megan Mullally.
