Timothée Chalamet stars as a quiet teenager transformed by a gift for drug-slinging in this romantic thriller from filmmaker Elijah Bynum, with Maika Monroe and Alex Roe.
Set in Cape Cod over one scorching summer, HOT SUMMER NIGHTS follows Daniel (Timothée Chalamet), a shy out-of-towner who gets in over his head flipping weed with the neighborhood rebel (Alex Roe) while pursuing his new business partner’s enigmatic sister (Maika Monroe). With a hurricane looming in the wings, tensions rise against a backdrop of drive-ins, arcades, and crashed parties as the stakes (and temperatures) grow ever higher.
HOT SUMMER NIGHTS was actually shot before Chalamet made his mark with LADY BIRD and CALL ME BY YOUR NAME. Which is a feather in the cap of A24 who can now cash in on his accomplishments.
HOT SUMMER NIGHTS is exclusively on DIRECTV June 28. In Theaters July 27.
