Directed by Mark Thiedeman
Two high school sweethearts, Luke and Jonah, spend their final summer months together in the rural South. Against a world of baseball fields, bicycles, churches, and conservative values, the boys find a position in their all-American town. Jonah, sensitive, quiet and artistic, prepares to leave his small town for college, leaving Luke behind, but all he wants is for Luke to ask him to stay. But Luke, an athlete struggling through summer school, knows that his boyfriend needs to experience the world beyond their home. Though he is somewhat aimless and unsure of his place in the world, he begins to find solace in an old camera that he finds in an antique store.

this was 72 minutes of nothing
Pretentious. Tedious. Despite its relatively brief 72 minute running time, Last Summer feels longer than the langourous season it depicts. Interminable close-ups reduce the film's world to a myopic, inert, few square feet: even when outdoors we feel like we're boxed-in. Even tossing a ball around between characters is flattened and claustrophobic. Deadly.
truthfully, I just hoped for and wanted more of the movie. I wanted to see some more emotion and not just two guys cuddling, which gave the most sincere emotion of the movie.
My friend told me that a good movie. But It’s in no the close caption/English subtitle.
Very sweet! It's Not meant to be a typical narrative, but more of a mood piece. I loved the shoe scene! I could really feel the endearment they had toward each other somehow just by the way the shoes moved around. I also dug the naturalistic- ness. Reminds me o Terrance Mallack.
