A presentation highlight takes after the daylong assembling of a gathering of SoCal adolescents on the eve of their takeoff for school.
The octet of companions in Summer of 8 four young men and four young ladies — are a special, reserved and great looking bundle of Southern Californians, going to head their different routes for school. With a gratefulness for the bittersweetness of summer’s last beams, first-time chief Ryan Schwartz commends their childhood, magnificence and blended feelings over a daylong assembling at the shoreline. His screenplay strikes all inclusive harmonies, yet with his inclination for consistent discourse over emotional activity, Schwartz doesn’t exactly make an interpretation of those sentiments into including film. Principally he oversells them.
