David Berry; 2017; USA; 116 min.
The award-winning SOMETHING LIKE SUMMER is a richly textured story about the thrill, awkwardness, and obsessive nature of adolescent love, which grows over 12 years into one colored by conflict, loss, and rediscovery. In the wake of painful bullying, boldly out and gifted singer Ben acquiesces to loneliness, until he meets the gorgeous athlete Tim. This beautifully shot film elegantly weaves Ben’s intimate musical revelations into the narrative, as he is confronted by the crosscurrents of life, experiences the complexities of true love with Jace (Ben Baur, Hunting Season), and ultimately embraces enduring friendship. Winner of multiple jury and audience awards, for directing, acting, and soundtrack.
