Age of Summer - Sky Cinema Premiere

Rollerskaters in sunny California

A sunny coming-of-age movie set in 1986 California. 3/5 stars

A spunky teenage boy (Percy Hynes White) rides the waves of adolescence while spending the summer as a junior lifeguard in Hermosa Beach, California.

Along the way, he falls for blonde surfer beauty Brooke (Charlotte Sabina), falls out with his geeky best friend (Jake Ryan) and finds a strange mentor in eccentric local guru The Rock God (Peter Stormare).

A kind of junior edition of Baywatch, this episodic coming-of-age movie may not add up to very much, but its gorgeous sun-drenched photography glows with radiant nostalgia.
