Breaking Glass Pictures plans to tug at your heartstrings with the release of their latest drama, “Last Summer,” on DVD and VOD (iTunes, Amazon Instant) Dec. 2. The film, directed Mark Thiedeman, stars Samuel Pettit and Sean Rose as boyfriends Luke and Jonah, respectively.
The film, which as been described as a “masterpiece” by Filmmaker Magazine, focuses Luke and Jonah who struggle with their futures while spending their last months together before starting their adult lives.
“‘Last Summer’ tells the story of two high school sweethearts, Luke and Jonah, who spend their final months together over the course of a long, quiet summer in the rural South, contemplating their uncertain future and the uncertain future of America. Jonah, sensitive, quiet and artistic, prepares to leave his small town for college, leaving Luke behind, but all he wants is for Luke to ask him to stay. But Luke, an athlete struggling through summer school, knows that his boyfriend needs to experience the world beyond their home. Though he is somewhat aimless and unsure of his place in the world, he begins to find solace in an old camera that he finds in an antique store. Last Summer positions their love story against a world of baseball fields, bicycles, church, and seemingly conservative values, though the boys never face adversity from their community; instead, they fit directly into the fabric of their all-American town.”
