Overview

Uprooted from her comfortable San Francisco home and transplanted to a generic Southern California suburb by her two well-meaning moms, open-minded high-school sophomore Tru despairs at being surrounded by close-minded football players and air-headed Paris Hilton wannabes until she gets the idea to combat small-town intolerance by co-founding a local chapter of the Gay-Straight Alliance.

Overview

Uprooted from her comfortable San Francisco home and transplanted to a generic Southern California suburb by her two well-meaning moms, open-minded high-school sophomore Tru despairs at being surrounded by close-minded football players and air-headed Paris Hilton wannabes until she gets the idea to combat small-town intolerance by co-founding a local chapter of the Gay-Straight Alliance. Life in her new town isn't easy, so in order to fend off boredom, Tru frequently escapes into fantasy. But whether she's retreating into a picture-perfect, Leave It to Beaver-style household with two mothers and two fathers or dancing in the streets West Side Story-style, Tru's depressive new surroundings always remain the same once she's snapped back to reality. When the star quarterback at her new high school begins paying special attention to Tru, her initial elation is soon tempered by the revelation that he's actually just another closet case in search of a sympathetic shoulder to cry on. Though Tru is at first frustrated by the prospect of putting on a false front in order to protect the athlete's true sexuality, she decides to address the homophobic attitudes of her new classmates directly by opening a local chapter of the Gay-Straight Alliance. As the movement begins to gain steam, however, Tru is forced to reconcile her unguarded position on sexual orientation with the private pledge she has made to her closeted classmate.

    Marvelous!!!

    Done as a light comedy, while dealing with serious subject matter, this was a very worthwhile and valuable movie. I enjoyed it very much, as did those all around me. It was done with both serious straight on acting and also tongue in cheek comedic acting, which somehow balanced out well - a perfect fit! The lead actress who played Tru was just wonderful. She was so natural and real. All the young actors were wonderful and played their parts perfectly. -- Our big stars of the future! ( I'm serious!!)

    Those who played their parts just slightly over the top, as their parts were clearly meant to be, were fabulous. They made it fun and kept it all rolling along.

    There it all was - the social struggles of high school, the foolishness of our actions in those years of growing and finding ourselves - the pain and cruelty and strength and kindness and sadness and young love and yearning --- and, and, and -- .

    Personally, I could have done without the fantasy scenes; I found them okay, but unnecessary and somewhat distracting, however in talking with others that were there, they loved those scenes, so who's to say.

    All in all, the cast was fantastic, the subject matter timeless and always important in our growth, and --very entertainingly presented.

    Well done.
