Movie Info

When a stylish gay student arrives for his first day at Brickland International High School, the threats he endures from the jocks and bullies is soon balanced by his friendship with two of the school's biggest misfits in director Russell P. Marleau's loopy teen comedy. For the most part, Brickland is your average European high school - with popular kids, athletes, geeks, and fashionistas all tallying for top dog status. When Chance arrives for his first day at Brickland decked out in a top hat and carrying a cane, football punter Brad Harden promptly singles him out for torment. Thankfully Chance has the kind of quick wits needed to deflect Brad's homophobic attacks. Upon making friends with sassy Twyla and geeky Hank, Chance quickly begins to learn the ropes at Brickland. Later, an excursion to the local drag bar, a bit of amateur sleuthing, and an burgeoning alliance with athletic musician and straight boy Levi finds Chance poised to achieve legendary status at Brickland.

Audience Reviews for The Curiosity of Chance

I LOVE this movie! It is utterly fantastical. The characters are awesome, and I really want to know what is in that kid's case.

Netflix sent me this as one of those "if you liked these movies, you'll like this" so I didn't know anything about it going in. There's a lot to like about it (although it did remind me of the tv show "Glee")...the actors were great and charming...the characters were not as cookie-cutter as I would have supposed: the widowed father, "Sir", was not a rigid stereotype; the all-knowing sister was funny with her perfect but completely fake British accent as Chance points out, Chance taking a chance on doing drag was great and he was so pretty in a not-campy way, his reaction to his picture in that same drag outfit plastered all over the school was probably the most telling moment of the film: you want to control how other people see you...even if how they see you is accurate...but the fact is that if you are yourself, people can and do react to you however they damned well please. Sobering, growing up moment. I loved the support of his drag queen friends...a part of being gay that most straight people, especially straight conservative religionistas never see: the support of the tribe.

Probably one of the better movies I have seen lately with a gay teen. Actually it was Excellent. A gay teen coping with being gay in high school. A must see if you like gay movies.
