About the movie
It’s the ‘80s once again, and the John Hughes-styled high school comedy gets a fresh twist in this touching, coming-of-age tale. New wave angst and genderbending fashion were all the rage, but new kid at school, Chance Marquis (Tad Hilgenbrinck of American Pie Presents: Band Camp and Lost Boys: The Tribe) is trying to find new ways to stand out. And his being an odd and somewhat awkward teenager makes him the target of the school bully. To deal with this dilemma, Chance turns to the opposite ends of the high school spectrum for help. On one side is the flamboyant drag queen and at the other, the varsity jock, Levi Sparks (Brett Chukerman of Eating Out 2) with whom Chance develops a unique friendship. Chock-full of the comic conventions of the high school genre – the idiot faculty, the good-hearted but delusional parents, the fairy tale reversal of popularity – The Curiosity of Chance is a frothy bit of nostalgic film making. But knowing the genre doesn’t mean its story won’t also touch your heart, as Chance battles the bigots to make high school the diverse utopia it should have always been.
