Directed by Michael Tully, Ping Pong Summer is a complete throwback 80’s flick. Its lead character (played by Marcello Conte) moves to Ocean City, MD for a summer where the ‘coming of age’ plot takes shape. He befriends oddball characters who all encourage him to break out of his shell. The opportunity arises when he enlists the help of a former ping pong champion (bit of a stretch here; played by Susan Sarandon) who mentors him throughout his stay.
The movie stars Marcello Conte, Susan Sarandon, Amy Sedaris and Lea Thompson among many others. It will hit the big screen on June 6, 2014.
