There ought to be more gay-themed teen movies. One that’ll hopefully arrive soon is Geography Club, which has just released its first trailer – and you can watch that below.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Based on Brent Hartinger’s best-selling critically acclaimed novel, Geography Club is a smart, fast, and funny account of contemporary teenagers as they discover their own sexual identities, dreams, and values. 16-year old Russell is still going on dates with girls while having a secret relationship with football quarterback Kevin, who will do anything to prevent his football teammates from finding out. Min and Terese tell everyone that they’re just really good friends. And then there’s Ike who can’t figure out who he is or who he wants to be. Finding the truth too hard to hide, they all decide to form the Geography Club, thinking nobody else in their right mind would ever want to join. However, their secrets may soon be discovered and they could have to face the choice of revealing who they really are.’
As you can see from the trailer, familiar faces such as Scott Bakula and Glee’s Alex Newell also make an appearance in the movie. It feels like it could be pretty fun, with a serious side as well as plenty of rom-com humour.
