Last Summer of Nathan Lee

Directed by Quentin Lee

Cast: Harrison Xu, Matthew Mitchell Espinosa, Natasha Tina Liu

YOLO takes a whole different meaning when 1. life has a time limit and 2. you are young and feeling more alive than ever. Last Summer of Nathan Lee captures the essence of coming-of-age joyful abandon, exploring the blurry lines between friendship and sex. We are brought into the last year of high school where Nathan (Harrison Xu) is diagnosed with cancer which leads him on a journey to live life to the fullest with the time he has left. His best friends and newfound love traverse high school drama, modern day friendship, and fluidity in sexual preferences. Seeing how love transcends tradition, culture, and jealousy is what makes this film sing.. “It’s what we do with our time and the people we spend it with…that’s what’s most important”. Anyone looking to flip the script on sickness & death will fall in love with Nathan and his friends.

Guests expected to attend for a post-screening Q&A: Filmmaker Quentin Lee (SHOPPING FOR FANGS), actor Harrison Xu, Writer/Producer Dennis Escobedo, actor Matthew Mitchell Espinosa, actress Dru Perez, and actor Aaron Guest.
