The Curiosity of Chance

This is a teenage movie set in the 80’s in the John Hughes vein – but with a gay character as the star. Although slow to start out (it is missing the quick and snappy dialogue of John Hughes’ films) it quickly gets up to speed and is hilarious and poignant at the same time, without ever being sad. The three teens I brought went CRAZY over this film and gave it a standing ovation. Truthfully, gay teens don’t get to see images of themselves on film like this – oh yes, you have the serious films, and gay porn, but you don’t get just happy, fun, gay teenage movies [edited: back in 2007 you didn’t]. My three teens were just dying for more and wouldn’t stop talking about it until the next movie started.
It wasn’t just for teens though, and it appeared that the audience who was mostly older adults also loved it.

Now available on DVD and through Netflix.
