Storyline

In the small, predominantly working class town of Inniston, Ontario, Marc Hall is a high school senior with a promising future in his chosen career as lawyer. He is bright, well liked by his classmates and teachers, and quietly supported by his hard working parents, Audy and Emily Hall. He is also openly gay and attends St. Jude, a Catholic school. His cordial relationship with those in authority in his sphere of life is put to the test when he requests that his boyfriend Jason be his date to the graduation prom. That request is flatly denied by the school's hard nosed principal, Mr. Warrick. Despite seeing his prom as an important rite of passage, Marc refuses to go if he is denied this request. He is supported by his best friend Carly, who also refuses to go if Marc doesn't go. As such, Carly's boyfriend, Beau, mounts an online "support Marc" campaign with the help of the school's computer geeks. The online campaign and Marc's appeal to the Catholic School Board catches the ... Written by Huggo

This drama has made me fall in love with Aaron Ashmore.
27 July 2004 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

I was expecting something a bit above mediocre. I was expecting the gay issue not to be taken seriously. I was even preparing to be disappointed.

This dramatization of the Marc Hall story has risen so far above my expectations, I can't even measure it. It was delightful. Witty, funny, dramatic, touching, and moving are all words to describe this picture. It was definitely a feel-good film.

I was especially scrutinizing Aaron Ashmore's performance. Assuming, of course, that he's straight, I watched his ability to genuinely play a gay teenager. I watched the gay part, and the teenager part. Both were just about flawless.

He had a youthfulness in his eyes, and he moved with the energy of youth. The smiles were bright and genuine. But maybe I'm just gushing. :)

The gay part wasn't perfect, obviously, but it was pretty damned near so. Every time his character was supposed to be looking at his boyfriend with love in his eyes, I could see real joy in Aaron's eyes and a genuine smile on his face. It amazed me, really. He was very happy-go-lucky, and played his part very sincerely.

I guess that's what pleases me most. I was really able to believe that Aaron was a very tall, very nicely built, very studly, gay teenager fighting for nothing more - and nothing less - than his right to be equal. And, of course, his right to dance with his boyfriend at his prom.

I thought the ending was perfect. It wasn't missing anything, except maybe the prom scene could've been shown in more detail. Maybe have a few conversations with people during the prom.

All's well that ends well, and this fairy tale certainly ended well.

Aaron, if EVER you read this, you did an awesome job. You played someone guys could easily fall in love with. And fall I did. Call me! :)
