Chris Colfer, Christina Hendricks, Rebel Wilson, Dermot Mulroney, Allison Janney, Sarah Hyland, Carter Jenkins / Fiction / English

An all-star cast tell a tale of teenage life in a smart high-school comedy written by and starring Glee’s Chris Colfer.

Carson Phillips has a dream that exceeds the constraints of his small town. When he discovers his efforts as head of Writers’ Club won’t be enough to impress his dream university, he blackmails his reluctant classmates into compiling a literary magazine from their work. A satirical story of flying the nest that’s supported by a wonderful ensemble, this comical yet moving film mocks the clichéd school life Hollywood often presents.

    Run of the mill teen tv movie. Was this in high-def?! Characters in long shot were pixelated beyond recognition!
