When Gays Rule High School (VIDEO)
We all are always wary of gay-themed films – usually comprised of pretty guys (who often are terrible actors), they tend to disappoint. This one, though, may hold some promise.
Darren Stein, who directed Jawbreaker, is about to debut a new gay high school film at the Tribeca Film Festival next month:
G.B.F. tells the story of two closeted best friends, Tanner (Michael J. Willett, United States of Tara) and Brent (Paul Iacono, The Hard Times of R.J. Berger). Brent longs for the spotlight and has a plan that will make him the most popular kid in school. He believes that coming out will make him instantly popular, as the newest must-have teen girl “accessory”: The G.B.F. (Gay Best Friend). Tanner on the other hand, would rather fly under the radar and graduate from high school without ever being noticed.
When things don’t go according to plan and Tanner is outed instead of Brent, the two boys go from B.F.F.s to instant frenemies and the three most popular girls in school — queen-of-mean bombshell Fawcett (Sasha Pieterse, Pretty Little Liars), drama club diva Caprice (Xosha Roquemore, Precious) and sweet, Mormon good-girl ‘Shley (Andrea Bowen,Desperate Housewives) launch an all-out social war to win Tanner’s status-enhancing friendship.
The film features Michael J. Willett, Natasha Lyonne, Megan Mullally, Rebecca Gayheart, Jonathan Silverman, and Horatio Sanz. Watch the behind-the-scenes film below…
