James Ponsoldt’s ‘Summering’

COURTESY OF BLEECKER STREET

Reporter Michael Atkinson reviews film Summering, directed by James Ponsoldt, in his latest piece for the Village Voice. The film centers around four young middle schoolers, whose lives are about to change forever, and their last week of summer.

“A fervent effort to craft a Stand By Me for tween girls—or maybe for Millennials nostalgic for their sixth-grade girlhoods—director James Ponsoldt’s Summering even begins with a slo-mo gallop through a lawn-sprinkler rainbow. Its honorable-yet-mushy intentions couldn’t be clearer, its retrospective emotional palate of semi-preadolescent freedom and friend-bonding already limited,” writes Atkinson.
