Ping Pong Summer is a new comedy set in the summer of 1985, starring Marcello Conte as Rad Miracle, shy 13-year-old white kid who’s obsessed with two things: ping pong and hip hop.
During his family’s annual summer vacation to Ocean City, Maryland, Rad makes a new best friend, experiences his first real crush, becomes the target of rich, racist local bullies, and finds an unexpected mentor in his outcast next-door neighbor. Ping Pong Summer is about that time in your life when you’re treated like an alien by everyone around you, even though you know deep down you’re as funky fresh as it gets.
Ping Pong Summer also stars John Hannah, Susan Sarandon, Amy Sedaris, Judah Friedlander, and also Lea Thompson, who many will remember from the Back To The Future films. Remember when she was made up to look older, as if it really was the year 2015? Well, now you can see how she’s doing for real. And she’s not bad, either 😉
The film hasn’t yet got a release date anywhere, but it looks great, and in the mean time, check out the new trailer below:
