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

very good movie!
30 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I put this movie as a 10. it really depends on your taste in GLBT movies. If you are all for the sex, then yes, this show was awful. I personally enjoyed the story. This movie reaches out to ALL AGES (notice some oldies songs), and is a great learning tool. Even though this movie did not stick to the complete story, it is still enough to get you interested in what happened. The music...It gave the film a campy, fun feeling that the director was looking for. Even in the worst of times, it had the emotional aspect linking the music to marc's or anyone else's emotion. The people in marcs house...yes I would say that was a bit over stereotyping, but Church St. was portrayed accurately. And finally, the bimbo girls. If you take a look in High Schools today, you will find that a lot of this movie is exactly like school. We even have those girls at my school.

This is a great movie for enjoyment. It had me laughing and crying. Aaron Ashmore is a superb actor, and this only shows of his abilities. This movie was WELL ACTED! Oh, Jason in real life wasn't out fully also. And what happened with their fight, it was very possible. I have seen closeted relationships break-up because of moving too fast, in what case Marc and Jason were. This is a great movie to watch whenever you are feeling down and need inspiration. "An after school feel-good movie"

Oh, by the way, The Hall Family loved the movie.
