“A sweetly engaging tribute to classic John Hughes movies…ricochets from hormonal hijinks to tear-soaked melodrama.”--Justin Chang, Variety
“An inventive tribute to John Hughes-style teen comedies…powered by an instantly recognizable dance-happy soundtrack and a charismatic cast.”--Justin Lowe, Hollywood Reporter
A sexy young cast makes the most of this rambunctious comedy that bounces to the beat of ‘80s oldies. Based on his own experience as a teen sent to summer camp in Korea in a short-lived experiment in cultural immersion, director Lee (PLANET B-BOY) takes the archetypal teen comedy for a goofball east-meets-west round of binge- drinking, sexual experimentation, and unexpected self-discovery when a clutch of
smug, punked-out Korean American kids sashay off the plane in Seoul and into the horrified custody of straitlaced camp counselors. In English, Korean, and German with English subtitles. DCP digital. (BS)
Director Benson Lee will be present for audience discussion. Ticket-holders are invited to the opening reception for the art exhibit Journey-scapes from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm in our Gallery/cafe.
