In Kevin McMullin’s Low Tide, a group of high schoolers waste away their summers by breaking into vacation homes to steal valuables, aimlessly search for girls on the boardwalk, and picking petty fights with tourists at the local burger stand. It’s the ideal situation for anyone who has grown up in a beach town, except when the cops zero in on your daily activities.
Laden with a unique 80s vibe and a tone that scream Goonies and The Outsiders, Low Tide is a fresh, unique, and fun coming of age story that we thoroughly enjoyed when it premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. Now, thanks to its first official trailer, others are getting in on the action.
Though the trailer itself is hardly addicting, it does give a solid overview of the story, its leading players, and the tense relationship between the boys who at times call themselves friends. Starring Brendan McHugh, Kevin Rowe, Richard Peele, Ryan Cahill, and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Low Tide is making its debut on DirectTV September 5 before hitting theaters October 4.
