From acclaimed Romanian director Radu Muntean (Tuesday, After Christmas), Summer Holiday (aka Boogie) is a funny and bittersweet drama of male mid-life crisis.

 

During a blissful seaside vacation with his adorable, pregnant wife

 (4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days’ Anamaria Marinca) and young son, 30-something Bogdan (Police, Adjective’s Dragos Bucur) bumps into his best friends from high school. They soon fall into wistful reminisces about their “glory days” of drinking binges and outrageous sexual escapades. Frustrated with the constraints of family life, he decides to indulge in one more wild night of boozing and chasing women with his old pals. But soon he realizes that growing up might just be the best fate of all.
