Bummer Summer

Running Time: 79 mins

What a difference a weekend makes.

When you’re seventeen, every little thing can seem like a major change in the world. So it goes with Isaac, a teenager who, as his senior year in high school comes to an end, stares uneasily into the future. His feelings of confusion are further compounded by the arrival of his older brother, Ben, who comes home for the summer to take up with his ex-girlfriend, Lila, and set out on one last road trip before entering the world of responsibilities. The harmony the three youngsters seek over the weekend getaway quickly gives way to unexpected complications, however, as Isaac and Ben realize their shared feelings for Lila.

Employing inventive storytelling, sensitive performances and deadpan humor, director Zach Weintraub shows he's a talent to watch with this wry and touching portrait of youthful romance and potential.
