The Kings of Summer (2013) - starring Nick Robinson (he'll be in Jurassic World), Gabriel Basso, Moises Arias (most noted for his role on Hannah Montana).
“Three teenage friends, in the ultimate act of independence, decide to spend their summer building a house in the woods and living off the land.”
When I found this movie, by accident, I didn't know how much I'd love not only the cast, but the script! We have Joe, Patrick, and Biaggio – Joe and Patrick are best friends and have been forever, whereas Biaggio just... appears – who set off building their own place in the woods and say the weirdest of things (more so Biaggio does). It's filled with humor, best friend problems, dealing with parents, typical teenage lifestyles, and lots of laughs. It also has Nick Offerman as Joe's dad.

“So, you think you saw Heaven?” Joe Toy asked his friend while he laid in the hospital bed. Biaggio nodded, whole-heartedly replying, “Yes. It had a lot of demons in it.” If this movie doesn't blow you away, what will? It's perfection wrapped up in teen drama and cute boys and Moises Arias's brilliant done role. All hail this movie!
