From British writer/director Kenton Hall; A Dozen Summers is described as two 12 year old girls who hi-jack a movie and turn it into a story about their lives. This is an interesting concept in and of itself but also consider the lead roles are played by Hall’s own daughters Scarlet & Hero Hall and Kenton himself plays their father in the film.The film starts with some wonderfully hilarious voice-over from Colin Baker (of Doctor Who fame) which sets the comedy bar high. Through-out there are ‘various fourth-wall moments’ and references to the many tropes and devices used by film-makers.
4/5 – ‘Bold, Hopeful British indie comedy/drama at it’s best’
See our full review here.
A Dozen Summers is a comedy – from writer/director Kenton Hall – for children of all ages (including adults who haven’t completely lost their way yet).
A story about what it’s really like to be 12 in the 21st century, A Dozen Summers follows sisters Maisie and Daisy McCormack as they inadvertently hijack a more traditional children’s film and decide to take an audience on a tour of their increasingly complicated journey towards adolescence.
With a truly brilliant young cast – and some guest appearances from grown-up actors who managed to sneak into the mix somehow – A Dozen Summers is a movie to make children feel better about growing up and for adults to remember what it was like to be young.
