good educational ice-breaker but wholly unrealistic

for anyone outside of the OC or Dawson's Creek this film will have
difficulty find resonance and applicability, despite the universality
of the theme. everyone can understand the concept of being afraid of
sharing your whole reality with the people around you and everyone can
gain insight about acceptance and respect for differences but the plot
and setting are prohibitively specific and inordinately rare, making
them inaccessible to the average teen viewer.
while i would definitely say that it could be used in an educational
context with any audience in order to broach the subject of
homosexuality, it would be necessary to ask students, "how does this
differ from your life? how is this similar to your life?" in order to
get at its value.
