THE WIDE-ANGLE VIEW
The film ‘Sons of Summer’, a gripping thriller, tells the tale of Sean and his friends who face unexpected challenges during their road journey to a surfing town, embroiled in drug trafficking and mob activity.
A clip from the film introduces us to Frank, portrayed by Temuera Morrison, who is in search of a debtor, only to be met with obstinacy and a resulting brawl.
The film showcases a star-studded cast, including Joe Davidson, Isabel Lucas, among others, under the direction of Clive Fleury. The narrative interweaves elements of crime and action alongside astounding surfing stunts.
As the saying goes, no summer escapade to a cozy surf-town is complete without a run-in with the local drug-peddling gangster. Despite fall’s impending arrival, there’s still room for one last summer misadventure, courtesy of Lionsgate’s forthcoming ‘Sons of Summer’. In a new excerpt from the movie, which FilmSweep is thrilled to share exclusively, Temuera Morrison, one of the film’s key figures, is relentlessly pursuing information, at any cost necessary.
The latest snippet displays Frank (Morrison) confronting another individual near the coastal cliffs, seemingly in an effort to reclaim owed money. When the man falls short of payment, attributing it to the rising cost of living, he tries to divert Frank’s attention to Rick (Alex Fleri), whom the man claims is indebted to numerous individuals, including himself. When he refuses to reveal Rick’s whereabouts to Frank, a brawl ensues, with Frank leaving his adversary in a rather perilous situation. While the cost of living might be on the rise, it appears the cost of dying is following suit.
