5 LastSummerTwo high school sweethearts, Luke (Samuel Pettit) and Jonah (Sean Rose), spend their final months together over the course of a long, quiet summer in the rural South, contemplating their uncertain future and the uncertain future of America. 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. Last Summer positions their love story against a world of baseball fields, bicycles, church, and seemingly conservative values, though the boys never face adversity form their community; instead, they fit directly into the fabric of their all-American town. Directed by Mark Thiedeman. Breaking Glass Pictures (bgpics.com). —Troy Carrington
