Critic Reviews for Geography Club
The idea here isn't to titillate with tawdry teen hormones, but to offer an outlet for all that mental distress young people take on while trying to find their place in the world.
When it comes to constructive gay-themed material aimed at teens, perhaps half a loaf remains better than none.
As a manifesto for tolerance and a contribution to greater social and gender harmony, this is an exercise all to the good. As a film, however, it's something of a snooze.
The film feels like a throwback, but it's at least a useful introduction to the subject.
Audience Reviews for Geography Club
Geography Club is one of the most realistic movies ever. The genesis of the negative reviews stems from politically correct flakes. This is one of my favorite movies ever. It accurately depicts a teen's struggles with sexuality and acceptance. It is beautiful. Absolutely loved it. Cameron Deane Stewart and Justin Deeley as Russell and Kevin How to put their performance.. Breathtaking and realistically sexy. It is a must watch regardless of moral opinion. Stunning, second only to "Blue is the Warmest Color." On par with "The Normal Heart" in a young, angsty sense.
Gay teen Russel is a student at a high school " focusing on his parents goal of getting him into Yale. Completely in the closet, he dates girls, acting as the wing man for his bestfriend Gunnar. After starting a secret affair with a jock footballer, he is asked to join the "Geography club" which turns out to be a secret support group for gay students, but they have aspirations to make it not so secret. Whilst its heart is in the right place, this film is quite the snoozefest. This teen comedy isn't particularly funny and the story arcs all over the place concluding in a big messy non-ending. Unexplored characters, plot lines and relationships make it seem more of a TV pilot than a stand alone film. I applaud its intentions, but this is not a good film.
I love the message of the movie, sort of like "Frozen" in the way that the lead character wanted a boyfriend, but in the end realized he is fine on his own. The movie is very comical while having nice touches of romance. I loved it.
