A group of friends decide to take a trip to the beach on the last day of the summer but when their car won't start they are forced to take their vacation in their car.
With directorial touches of Spike Lee and Jim Jarmusch, The Vacation whimsically follows four friends desperate to escape Flatbush for a beach day on the last day of summer. Only problem is their car won’t start. Trapped in the unmoving vehicle, they riff on their hopes and dreams, all the while passing joints, memories, and deepening their bond. Cleverly written with exceptional acting, this film disarms with hilarious laughs to touch on deep themes of racism and social stratification, all the while reminding us that we don’t have to go anywhere to go on vacation.— Vincent DeLuca, Programmer
