Five perfect summertime films you have to see

Nothing is better for getting in the summertime mood than the perfect summer movie.


The Way Way Back

This is an amazing movie that somehow managed to slip past everyone’s radar. 

It follows Duncan, an outcast young boy, who is in store for a miserable summer spent with his family — including his mom’s suspicious new boyfriend— until he befriends the manager of a local water park who transforms his summer and his way of life.

Adventureland

Considering the fact that this movie stars Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg (or is it Michael Cera?), it is the absolute perfect movie for when you’re moody and feeling the summertime blues. Included in this film is: terrible amusement park jobs, several over-dramatic love triangles and an abundance of dry humor.
