WATCH: SUMMER OF 8 LETS YOU RELIVE THE BETTER PART OF YOUR TEENAGE YEARS
Summer of 8 lets you relive that sun-kissed period of excitement, uncertainty, anticipation and happiness separating high school and university.
Summer of 8 tells the story of 8 soon-to-be college freshmen soaking up the last days of summer. Beautiful shots of the beach are coupled with really natural dialogue lend the movie a highly genuine and relatable feel.
Director, Ryan Schwartz, has perfectly captured that mix of earnestness and naivety distinct to your teenage years. I guarantee there’ll be at least one story arc that deeply resonates with your own experience, whether it be uncertainty over whether a relationship will survive this upcoming change, or a longing to be able to ‘get out of here and start all over’.
Summer of 8 is the movie version of that big breath you take right before making a giant leap of faith, and is a poignant celebration of youth.
