Rounding First (DVD)
Top Customer Reviews
In the spirit of "Stand By Me," Rounding First is a coming-of-age dramedy set in the summer of 1980. Twelve-year olds Joe, Tiger and Chris break out of baseball camp to secretly trail Joe's parents, who have lied to him about a mysterious trip they're taking. The boys must piece together clues, avoid their parents, dodge the police, trust a stranger - and not destroy their friendships in the process - during an adventurous road trip in their last summer before junior high.
The three boys are wonderfully portrayed by Soren Fulton (Joe), Sam Semenza (Chris) and Matt Borish (Tiger). Filmed on location in and around Allentown, Pennsylvania, the boys are very convincing in their roles. The soundtrack is brilliant and adds to the film's pace and feeling. Highly recommended.
