Hot Summer Nights: Brief Review

Hot Summer Nights, directed by Elijah Bynum (2017), is a film about some young adults making major decisions during the coarse of one summer in Cape Cod during the early 90’s that will change their lives forever. The story, the characters, the way the film was shot, the acting, all of it, was absolutely fantastic. Grief and loss push people into making decisions they may not have normally made. The piling consequences of the characters actions allowed it to feel like there were a moderate amount of stakes. However, the ending was a tad disappointing. I thought that his mistakes would catch up with him but in the end he just got away but maybe that made it more realistic than anything else. Sometimes people get away with making bad decisions with little consequence. In the end, this was a great film with a great feeling and easy to watch.
