They're just fifteen years old, but they've chosen to spend the summer rather differently to their carefree classmates. This group of boys opt instead to track one of their neighbors, a police officer, convinced that he's a serial killer responsible for the disappearance of several children in their small town.
With its romantic, vintage feel and amateur detective plot, Summer of '84 appears to be a tribute to the films of the 1980s. The movie by Roadkill Superstar (RKSS), the trio of Canadian directors François Simard, Anouk Whissell and Yoann-Karl Whissell, has already been presented at Sundance, explains Vulture.
The cast includes Graham Verchere (who has already won numerous Young Artist Awards for his television performances), Judah Lewis (Demolition), Tiera Skovbye (Riverdale), Caleb Emery (Goosebumps), Cory Gruter-Andrew (Beyond the Sun) and Rich Sommer (Glow, The Devil Wears Prada).
No release date has yet been announced, but we should be able to see the gang on the big screen before too long.
