All young adults have probably found themselves in Josh’s position at one time or another. In “Harvest,” Josh (Jack Carpenter) wants to go to the beach for the summer, but he’s forced to spend it with his family, because his grandpa (Robert Loggia) is dying. That feeling of obligation to your family conflicting with whatever you really want to do is an uncomfortable one.
Three generations of the family live together for a few months, and tons of bickering ensues. But something tells me that at the end of the summer, Josh will be glad he spent it with his grandpa.
The themes of “Harvest” are pretty universal — everyone can relate to the often complicated family dynamics. And I have a feeling the film’s message will tug on viewer’s heartstrings.
The “Harvest” begins in theaters on April 10.
