High school can be one of the most awkward experiences of our lives, and young love is never easy. Nerdy kid Russell (Cameron Stewart) is questioning his sexuality, and arranges online to meet up for a date with another guy in his high school. He ends up seeing a popular football player named Kevin (Justin Deeley). The date is a secret, but they are seen by Min (Ally Maki), who slips them both a note. Will she reveal their secret? Will Kevin's goofy best friend Gunnar (Andrew Caldwell) ever lose his virginity? Based on the popular novel by Brent Hartinger, this is a sweet and funny look at teenaged angst. Quirky characters and unusual plot twists help to lift this movie above its all-too-familiar setting, and SNL alum Ana Gasteyer appears as an offbeat teacher who knows her way around a cucumber. Come see why the Geography Club is so important to some kids, and experience the drama and laughter of high school again, at a safe distance.
Director Gary Entin has appeared as a performer in nine films, including Love or Whatever and Seconds Apart, and directed his short film Simply Joys in 2006. Geography Club is his first full-length feature film.
