Indian Summer

A group of former fellow campers return to Camp Tamakwa (a site in Ontario’s Algonquin Provincial Park where the movie was shot) for a reunion organized by the camp’s director (Alan Arkin), in a thoughtfully written and capably acted and directed comedy-drama by Mike Binder (Crossing the Bridge). This has practically none of the arty trappings of Bodies, Rest & Motion, but it deals fairly persuasively with the same generation of adults in their late 20s, and while nothing especially profound emerges it’s a pretty good piece of workentertaining and, thanks to the setting, pretty to look at. With Matt Craven, Diane Lane, Bill Paxton, Elizabeth Perkins, Kevin Pollack, Vincent Spano, Julie Warner, Kimberly Williams, and Sam Raimi, who contributes some funny moments of physical comedy as the camp’s handyman.
