The Last Summer centers on a group of high school graduate as they spend the last several months together before going to college. Maia Mitchell (The Fosters, Good Trouble) stars as Phoebe, a youth who may have eyes for her friend Griffin (Riverdale’s KJ Apa).
“I think the most important thing to take from this movie is that everyone is kind of doing their own thing and is on their own journey,” said Mitchell. “And that’s okay. (The film is about) just being strong in your own journey and your own identity.”
