Blu-ray $35.99, DVD $30.99 (Sony Pictures Home Entertainment)

This film festival coming-of-age charmer, popular enough to break out into the mainstream sunlight in some movie markets, tells the tale of three teenage buddies who, in a bold act of summer independence, run away from their suburban homes to build their own house in the woods and live off the land. With young stars Nick Robinson (from TV’s Melissa and Joey), Gabriel Basso (the movie Super 8) and Moises Arias (from TV’s Hannah Montana) joined by familiar TV players Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation), Alison Brie (Community) and Megan Mullally (Will and Grace), it’s a modern-day Huck Finn fable about families, friendships and young hearts on the glowing, golden cusp between childhood and maturity.
