From British writer/director Kenton Hall; ‘A Dozen Summers‘ is described as two 12 year old girls who hi-jack a movie and turn it into a story about their lives. This is an interesting concept in and of itself but also consider the lead roles are played by Hall’s own daughters Scarlet & Hero Hall and Kenton himself plays their father in the film.The film starts with some wonderfully hilarious voice-over from Colin Baker (of Doctor Who fame) which sets the comedy bar high. Through-out there are ‘various fourth-wall moments’ and references to the many tropes and devices used by film-makers.
4/5 – ‘Bold, Hopeful British indie comedy/drama at it’s best’
