Samuel Goldwyn Films is set to release Joseph Cross’ SUMMER NIGHT in theaters beginning July 12, 2019. The film features an impressive cast of some of Hollywood’s fastest rising stars including Ellar Coltrane (BOYHOOD), Ian Nelson (THE BOY NEXT DOOR), Analeigh Tipton (TWO NIGHT STAND), Callan McAuliffe (THE GREAT GATSBY), Ella Hunt (ANNA AND THE APOCALYPSE), Hayden Szeto (TRUTH OR DARE), Bill Milner (X-MEN: FIRST CLASS), Lana Condor (TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE), Elena Kampouris (BEFORE I FALL), Khris Davis (DETRIOT), Melina Vidler (TV’s 800 Words), with Victoria Justice (THE OUTCASTS), and Justin Chatwin (TV’s Shameless).

It’s the last days of summer. Best friends Seth (Nelson) and Jameson  (Coltrane) are getting ready to perform—and party—at local rock venue The Alamo. But before the night begins, both young men come face-to-face with serious reality checks: Seth receives life-changing news from his girlfriend Mel (Tipton), and Jameson has to choose between his on-again-off-again girlfriend Corin (Kampouris) and a new girl he’s just met, the outspoken Harmony (Justice).

At the show, Seth and Jameson’s friends are too caught up in their own lives to be much help: young rocker Taylor (McAuliffe) romances his new crush Dana (Hunt), and awkward Jack “Rabbit” (Milner) avoids his childhood friend Lexi (Condor) after learning what she did at her sister’s wedding. These intertwining friend-dramas, fueled by a lot of drinking, unfold against a backdrop of live music performed by the best bands in town.

By the end of the night, these young men and women are confronted with a series of fast- approaching life decisions that will either leave them stuck in the comfort of adolescence or catapult them into adulthood.
