Summer in the Shade: Great title, awful film
Supposedly an exploration of puberty trauma. Sounds dark and intriguing, but is dull and disappointing.
Summer in the Shade possesses an intriguing title that is sadly not backed up by the lacklustre film itself.
This film starts slowly and doesn’t speed up. Don’t be fooled by the suspense filled music, there is no truly spooky pay off.
A coming of age drama with clever cinematography and a haunting soundtrack, but an implausible and faintly ridiculous plot.
It may well have even been written by a pubescent mind.
I won’t waste too much more of your time reading about a film I hope you don’t waste your life watching.
Hats off to the actors for actually showing up and giving convincing performances for this one.
Summer in the Shade is coming to Digital Download from 20 June.
