Summer of '72 (2020)

  • Drama
  • 1h 41m

A beautiful yet relevant romance about love and diversity in an allegory of America today, starring Stranger Thing’s Natalia Dyer.

  1. War protests and racial tension sizzle in the late summer heat of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Recent college grad Billy (Devon Bostick) spends the summer working on the grounds of an asylum run by his psychiatrist father (Tate Donovan). As Billy falls for Virginia (Natalia Dyer), a patient at his father’s institute, his best friend Nigel (Marchánt Davis) becomes involved with a radical civil rights activist against Tuscaloosa’s power elite – including Billy’s father.

Summer of ’72 is a film with youthful romance and overtones of social unrest that tackle the difficult topics that are as relevant in today’s world as they were in 1972.
