The temperature is skyrocketing, but that’s not the only thing that’s heating up during the hot summer nights in Cape Cod. For Daniel Middleton, his summer fling with McKayla Strawberry (aka the femme fatale in town and everyone’s ultimate crush) is definitely another thing that’s adding extra heat to the summer. Written and directed by the incomparable Elijah Bynum, Hot Summer Nights explores the unforgettable summer Daniel Middleton experiences before he heads out to college. He gets wrapped up in a passionate but forbidden love while at the same time gets himself deeply into selling marijuana with the town’s infamous “bad boy.” Hot Summer Nights is nothing short of a brilliant masterpiece. It has everything and more that equates to a perfect film – from having a captivating and compelling storyline to an endless amount of action-packed scenes that will leave you at the edge of your seat the entire time.
The outstanding movie starts off with Daniel Middleton, played by the profound and in-demand actor Timothée Chalamet, as he heads out to spend the summer before college with his aunt in Cape Cod. It’s clear to see that Middleton is a socially awkward wallflower who can’t seem to answer a question straight when a girl asks him if he’s from town or just visiting. However, that all changes when he crosses paths with Hunter Strawberry, played by the phenomenal Alex Roe. Everyone knows Hunter Strawberry and by everyone, we mean… everyone! Anyone who lives in town has some sort of story to say about him – whether it’s true or not. But, one thing is for sure, Hunter Strawberry is definitely the hookup in town when it comes to marijuana. Daniel was able to convince Hunter to let him join in on his business. Just by being in Hunter’s presence, Daniel gained a whole lot of confidence (and maybe even some entrepreneurial skills!) In fact, surrounding himself by Hunter even gave Daniel enough motivation to go after the girl of his (and everyone else’s) dreams. The only problem: she just so happens to be Hunter’s younger sister and he wants no one – absolutely no guy – to ever try and hang around her. So, it’s up to Daniel to keep his relationship on the down low while also working closely with his dream girl’s brother.
There truly is never a dull moment in Hot Summer Nights. It follows the highs and lows of a teenager who gets caught up in the whirlwind of wrongdoings as a devastating storm looms over town. Hot Summer Nights has one exceptional and unrivaled cast consisting of Timothée Chalamet, Alex Roe, Maika Monroe and Maia Mitchell who all did such a breathtakingly beautiful job in the movie. They brought so much passion into all of their roles and they will leave everyone speechless with their magnificent and awe-inspiring, acting skills in the film. This group of actors and actresses are establishing themselves in the industry as notable, consummate and highly-acclaimed artists who do above and beyond with any and every project that they work on.
