We enjoyed G.B.F. (Gay Best Friend) when we caught it at the Iris Prize Festival, and now Peccadillo Pictures is setting out to let the rest of the UK get a look at the comedy. It’s due in British cinemas on March 21st, on demand March 22nd and on DVD April 7th. But before then you can take a look at the new UK trailer, (which was initially released via DigitalSpy).
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Meet Tanner (Michael J. Willett) and Brent (Paul Iacono). They are two gay best friends. Brent longs for the spotlight and believes that coming out will make him instantly popular as this year’s must-have teen girl accessory; North Gateway High’s very first G.B.F. (or Gay Best Friend). Tanner on the other hand, would rather fly under the radar and finish high school without ever being noticed.
When things don’t go according to plan and Tanner is outed instead of Brent, the two boys go from B.F.Fs to instant frenemies. Enter the three most popular girls in school — queen-of-mean bombshell Fawcett, drama club diva Caprice, and sweet, Mormon good-girl ‘Shley, who launch an all-out social war to win Tanner’s status-enhancing friendship.
‘Featuring an all-star cast including Desperate Housewives’ Andrea Bowen, Will & Grace’s Megan Mullally, Orange Is The New Black’s Natasha Lyonne and Harry Potter’s Evanna Lynch. From the director of cult 90s teen movie JAWBREAKER comes this comic send-up of American high school clique culture in the vein of MEAN GIRLS and AMERICAN PIE’
