Very well received at Sundance, the first trailer for Ping Pong Summer is here.
Directed by Micharl Tully, the film follows a 13-year-old who walks to the reserved beat of his own drum. Although outwardly timid, he’s inwardly alive, practicing his moonwalk (with parachute pants to match), beatboxing, and love for hip-hop (courtesy of his modestly sized jukebox). Upon meeting a friend with the same interests, the two venture to the local arcade house, which also contains a single ping pong table, one that will become their shrine for the summer.
While the trailer is fun and sells the film, I’m told the the film is actually much better then what’s being shown.
Ping Pong Summer stars Susan Sarandon, Lea Thompson, John Hannah, Amy Sedaris, and Marcello Conte.
