“High school: society’s bright idea to put all their aggressive, naïve youth into one environment to torment and emotionally scar each other for life.” Watch the fresh, new trailer for Chris Colfer’s (“Glee”) screenwriting debut.
This coming of age “dramedy,” thoughtfully directed byBrian Dannelly (Saved!), tells the story of Carson Phillips (Colfer), a high senior meant for bigger things than a close-minded town could ever offer. However, destiny intervenes when a bolt of lightning suddenly kills Carson as he stands in his school parking lot. Ruefully acknowledging that life is what happens while you’re busy planning your future, Carson recounts the events in the last few weeks of his life (which includes college deadlines, blackmail, family angst and more) via witty, insightful flashbacks that introduce all of the people whose lives he unexpectedly touched and whose memories will keep him alive.
