14 Breakout Stars of Summer!

Gabriel Basso

Where you’ve seen him before: He was one of the movie-makers in Super 8.

Where you’ll see him this summer: He plays Patrick in The Kings of Summer, a coming-of-age tale about three boys who decide to head to the woods and make an actual house (not a tree house!) and live off the land for a summer. Patrick, in particular, has some of the most over-bearing parents in recent cinematic history, and Basso conveys a sensitivity and longing that’ll make you fall in love with him.
