Storyline

"Sideline Secrets" follows the story of high-school senior Devon Tyler. With successful parents, a popular girlfriend, plenty of friends, and being at the top of his class and about to graduate, all seems ideal. However underneath the surface, things are not what they seem. With the heightened awareness of his sexual identity, the crumbling marriage of his gruff, unsupportive father and alcoholic mother, and the overbearing persona of his girlfriend, things couldn't get more difficult...or so he thinks. That is until a new boy enters his life and proves to be the missing key that brings everything together. But it also threatens everything he currently has. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Actors James Townsend (who plays Devon), David Wright (who plays Andrew) and Joshua Crowell (who originally possessed the role of "Brian" before backing out of the project) all met well-known drag queen 'CoCo Peru' (Clinton Leupp) at a screening for the movie Girls Will Be Girls (2003) in West Hollywood. Days later, they approached him to take on the role of the drag queen in "Sideline Secrets". After some correspondence, the role was ultimately turned down as the film was a non-union project.

Thrilling plot and exciting visuals
9 March 2008 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film is about a young man coming out to his family and girlfriend. In an unexpected plot twist, he finds himself and his new gay friends in grave danger.

The plot thrilling and captivating! I was very engaged to the characters, especially Devon and Jenna. When they were investigating the irregularities in the office, I was so worried about them being found out that I shouted out! It's a pity that people judge films by its budget or acting. It's true that the most of the acting is wooden in this film, but don't forget these actors "talents" are not in acting. "Sideline Secrets" is a lot better made, entertaining and exciting than many gay films. I think "Sideline Secrets" deserve a much higher rating.
