Hot Summer Nights

It’s when all the action goes down.

As opposed to cold winter days, when little, if anything, gets accomplished.

Timothée Chalamet hits Cape Cod, circa 1991, forced to spend the summer with his aunt as his family deals with his father’s death.

Unsure of himself, but definitely horny for bad girl Maika Monroe, our boy Timmy quickly spirals into life as a sweaty, over-stressed, low-level drug dealer with delusions of grandeur.

There’s a hurricane just off shore, and turmoil raging in his heart, setting up a string of betrayals and blowback.

We’ve seen this plot before, but it’s slickly-made and strongly-acted.
