Ryevsk, Russia, 1870. Tensions abound in the Karamazov family. Fyodor is a wealthy libertine who holds his purse strings tightly. His four grown sons include Dmitri, the eldest, an elegant officer, always broke and at odds with his father, betrothed to Katya, herself lovely and rich. The other brothers include a sterile aesthete, a factotum who is a bastard, and a monk. Family tensions erupt when Dmitri falls in love with one of his father's mistresses, the coquette Grushenka. Two brothers see Dmitri's jealousy of their father as an opportunity to inherit sooner. Acts of violence lead to the story's conclusion: trials of honor, conscience, forgiveness, and redemption.

Walter M (ca) wrote: In "The Kings of Summer," Joe(Nick Robinson) feels virtually trapped in the house with his widowed father(Nick Offerman), with only brief reprieves from visits by his older sister Heather(Alison Brie). Joe's friend Patrick(Gabriel Basso) is little help. It's not so much his foot injury but his parents'(Megan Mullaly and Marc Evan Jackson) overreaction to such. But Joe does have an idea to free both of them which involves the local forest, with a little help from the mysterious Biaggio(Moises Arias)."The Kings of Summer" is an evocative coming of age movie that makes a convincing argument for teenagers needing their freedom. At the same time, there is a good cast on hand, especially the adults(I think I might be finally warming up to Nick Offerman) who do not overshadow any of the youngsters. It is also so well photographed that the slow motion interludes are not annoying. But as satisfying as the movie is emotionally, it does not quite work as well on a physical level.

Rhys C (br) wrote: Lordy lordy lordy lord, this movie is even worse then the cartoon , it's filled to the brim with CG that is about on par with a crappy videogame , the plot goes all over the place and generally makes very little sense. With a better script, actors and a proper director this might have almost been mediocre and worth a rental but instead it's just generally boring and poor.
