We were joined on the Popternative show by the cast members of the new coming-of-age film Summering, Lia Barnett (Angelyne), Eden Grace Redfield (Our Flag Means Death), Sanai Victoria (Diary of a Future President), Lake Bell (Harley Quinn) and Sarah Cooper (Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fine). Directed by James Ponsoldt (The End of the Tour, The Spectacular Now), the film follows four best friends who face the uncertainties of growing up and embark on their biggest adventure yet as their last summer before middle school comes to a close.

Summering also stars Madalen Mills (Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey), Megan Mullally (Will & Grace) and Ashley Madekwe (Salem). On the last weekend of summer, Daisy (Lia Barnett), Dina (Madalen Mills), Mari (Eden Grace Redfield) and Lola (Sanai Victoria) return to their favorite spot in the nearby woods, only to find a grim surprise. Instead of calling the police or telling their parents, they decide to take matters into their own hands. The only clue they have is a matchbook from a local bar which sets them on a life-changing adventure that will bond them together forever.
