Geography Club (2013)

Director: Gary Entin

Stars: Cameron Deane Stewart, Justin Deeley, Meaghan Martin, Andrew Caldwell, Alex Newell, Scott Bakula

This movie is about teenagers who are discovering their sexual identities. The high school students create a "Geography Club" which is actually a cover for an LGBT support group. The film explores the teen's hopes, values and dreams while on this journey of going public and offering the whole school support.

Russell and Kevin are secretly seeing each other, but Russell is wanting to come out. He is going to risk a private relationship with a hot football player because he needs to be true about himself. Kids now days just don't do it right. You got college to come out in, not high school. What do kids know.

This movie is based on the book with the same title. This is a review of the movie, and not the book.

The movie was pretty good for that age group. This movie was made for high school or just out of high school age range. It is not really a movie for adults. Some may still relate to some of the problems that the characters are going through, but I serious doubt it. Those problems are for kids, not middle aged men.

I'm not trying to tear this movie down at all. It is a good movie. The story is clear. The characters are well written. The plot is there. I just do not know why they had to put Alex Newell in it. You remember him from Glee as the cross dressing students. He is just much for me to handle. That is all I am going to say.

Watch the movie. It is really good, and if you know of any youth questioning their sexuality, they need to watch it. Enjoy.
