SOMETHING LIKE SUMMER, 2017, 109 minutes, Dir: David Berry, USA – West Coast Premiere.
Our Boys Centerpiece film is based on the bestselling novel of the same name. Benjamin Bentley (Grant Davis) the only guy at his Texas high school with the courage to come out of the closet, dooming himself, as he believes, to a life of loneliness. Putting up with the bullies and his classmates’ whispered condemnations keeps him from pursuing his dream of being a singer, despite the encouragement of his best friend, Allison (Ajiona Alexus). Instead, Ben spends his summer vacation stalking the handsome athlete who just moved to town, Tim Wyman (Davi Santos). Epic in scope and wonderfully written and performed, the film follows the course of true love over the span of a dozen years, from awkward adolescence through challenging adulthood, featuring seven classic and original musical numbers and the artwork of a talented young artist. Also starring the wonderful Ben Baur! With Jana Lee Hamblin, Ron Boyd, Tristan Decker & Riley Stewart. Trailer: https://youtu.be/g0N8GE4sggw
