When Joe is tired of living under his dad's house after his mom died, he decides to run away from home with his best friend, Patrick, and random stranger Biaggio in the middle of the woods. While there they face many challenges like hunger, trust, and friendship.
Aside from the first 20 minutes of this movie being really awkward to sit through, it is probably one of the best movies I have seen. It brings the nostalgic feeling of summer you felt as a child and has a nice message to it. Many elements of this movie make it a masterpiece. The shots in this movie are amazing, and if I were to make a movie, it would look something like this. I was practically jumping up and down in excitement. I love almost everything about this movie, besides some of the jokes being really dumb, but those are easy to look over. Definitely one of the best movie I've seen this summer. It gets a solid 9 in my book. Thanks for reading.
