- Film Festival
Last week, PFS Members got a chance to see indie hit The Kings of Summer. The film, which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, revolves around three teenage boys who have had enough of overbearing, unappreciative parents and decide to take to the woods. Reminiscent of the classic Stand By Me, the boys move to the forest, where they build a makeshift cabin and live off the land.

I'm certain Patton Oswalt(Spence from King of Queens) never thought he'd ever get a chance to have a love scene with Charlize Theron. His romance with Rachel Dratch on the TV series was most likely more romantic action than he'd ever thought to see as a character actor.
Surprisingly, it's the chemistry between these two actors which allows Young Adult to find its footing and likeability.
On Sunday, PFS Members got a sneak peek at Machine Gun Preacher, starring Gerard Butler and based on the inspiring life of Sam Childers. The film follows Childers through his personal transformation and his journey to Africa to help children orphaned by the Sudanese Civil War.
After the screening, Childers joined us for a Q&A session, where his spoke about his work in Africa as well as his efforts to help those in need here in the US. He also answered questions about this childhood, family, and what some of the kids depicted in the film are up to today.
