Ping-Pong hasn’t really lived up to its brief on-screen popularity that it enjoyed in the award winning Forrest Gump but all this is about to change with the coming-of-age Ping-Pong Summer. Set in the, you got it, summer of 1985, the movie charts the life of 13 year old Rad Miracle (played by newcomer Marcello Conte) as he comes of age whilst on vacation in Ocean City, Maryland. Written and directed by Michael Tully, the movie doesn’t look like it offers anything ground-breaking but does look like it will play on the paddles, I mean heart strings. Other actors include Susan Sarandon, John Hannah, Lea Thompson, Amy Sedaris and Robert Longstreet.
The movie jumps to your screens on 6 June.
