Summer '03 Movie Review

summer 03

And we watch Jamie grow up, one mistake at a time. Did it feel gratuitous or necessary to the story? And it's a delightful showcase for veteran actress as Jamie's put-upon, self-medicating mother. The same the depiction of the young priest, depicted as someone searching a stable job occupation really? No way it is see the producers! Parents need to know that Summer '03 is a nostalgic but mature coming-of-age comedy in which a 16-year-old girl named Jamie , spurred by her grandmother's dying words, embarks on a clumsy journey of sexual exploration. Smarter and more heartfelt than the average teen sex comedy, Summer '03 is a promising feature debut for Gleason. The cast is well chosen, with Oscar nominee Squibb sprinkling just enough sugar on her poison and Ruffin effective as the nice guy we're hoping isn't doomed to finish last.

Acceptable as viewer because movie need to be free but over the lines. Expect strong sexual themes and content throughout Jamie becomes fascinated with trying oral sex, a young girl loses her virginity, and there's a mostly silhouetted demonstration of oral sex on an object , but no graphic nudity. Budding female sexuality is explored without moral judgment. That's fine because the movie, as the life, is more complex than placing into a single category would otherwise imply. This is a mix btwn a coming-of-age story and living in a, somehow, dysfunctional family dysfunctional because of grandma last words.

Parents, talk to your teens about your own values regarding sex and relationships. We cringe at her poor choices and stumbles, but Gleason and King make each one understandable. As Jamie's family deals with the fallout, Jamie embarks on a clumsy journey of sexual exploration involving young priest-to-be Luke Jack Kilmer and good-guy classmate March Stephen Ruffin. But, refreshingly, they're not the end of the world for this teenage girl who's just figuring it all out. I loved the work done by Joey King Jamie , not so much the character she played, a self-centered girl. This coming-of-age story has its share of iffy behavior and poor decisions, but the young female main character and her family and friends definitely come out stronger on the other side. I read some comments claiming that the movie content is anti-semitic.

Innocence may be, in fact, the most crucial difference between her and the young people of today. This nostalgic coming-of-age comedy is quite funny and well cast, and freshman writer-director Becca Gleason has a knack for evocative images and details. She is effortlessly verbal and extroverted except when the narration requires her to be otherwise, and I chuckled whenever Jamie visibly shuddered at the notion of public speaking. Gleason and cinematographer Ben Hardwicke catch moments that seem stolen from memory, such as a dark-night ride on the back of a bike or seconds of peace below the surface of a pool. They are either dull, not quite convincing or just poorly written. .

You can watch it and forget but not regret. The film feels rooted in a specific time and place. The tone is that of a comedy, I would say a rated comedy, the content is supposed to be more serious. Goofs Towards the middle of the film, when Jamie and Emily are sitting on the hood of the car eating ice cream, the amount of ice cream on Emily's cone fluctuates with each camera angle, even at one point in three consecutive shots, going from almost full, to almost gone, back to almost full again. Heartache that brought us to the depths of misery could evaporate in the morning light, and mortality was far from our most pressing preoccupation—the closest thing Jamie has to a religious shrine is her poster of. Did they seem like good parents? Jamie, meanwhile, has her misadventures. There's also lots of teen drinking and partying, including keg stands, and a mom self-medicates with alcohol.

The final scene Jamie speech at the church is one of the most offensive thing I could ever had imagined. That solid footing in reality makes the film's more farcical elements play even more effectively. In one of her best roles so far, Savage steals scenes with her wine-drinking, still-caring incredulity as simply ridiculous things happen to her family. We share in her frustration when others neglect to treat her as the center of attention, particularly during a church service. Summer '03 revels in the humor of inappropriateness, starting with Grandma's sweetly intoned parting shots involving anti-Semitism, homophobia, insensitively revealed secrets, and what amounts to a sexual dare to a 16-year-old girl. . .
