Blogging Through the Alphabet (Favorites Edition) ~ I is for Indian Summer

In the 90's I watched a movie that will forever be my favorite: Indian Summer. I even have it recorded on a VHS tape. (Remember when we did that? And when we paused the recording during commercials? Yeah.)

This movie has an ensemble cast with my favorite actress, Diane Lane, and some other popular actors and actresses of the time: Alan Arkin, Bill Paxton, Julie Warner, Elizabeth Perkins, Kevin Pollack, and Kimberly Williams before she became a Paisley.

The story unfolds when Uncle Lou, the owner of Camp Tamakwa, invites back several "kids" from the Golden Era of the camp for a reunion. The grown-up kids now all have adult issues of their own and a week back at camp is just what they need. They participate in camp pranks, old camp activities, and even crushes are rekindled. It is primarily a drama, with some sweet humor, and just a nostalgic visit back to the days of summer camp and the angst of real life as it unfolds in the lives of the characters.

Indian Summer is one of those movies I could watch over and over and over. I just recently saw it available on DVD on Amazon and I am planning to purchase it very soon for my library. I just need to grab a box of tissues before I watch it. It's a perfect Sunday afternoon movie.

Here is the trailer if you are interested. Great movie!!
