I saw this film at the Frameline Film Festival in San Francisco! The film was funny, campy and a great send-up of 80s high school life! The audience at The Castro Theatre hooted and hollered and cheered all the way through. The moment we first saw Margaret we ALL applauded. I laughed throughout the film along with everyone else. Bruce Daniels was fun and watched it with us. (He and the director did a Q&A after.) Great first feature... well directed and great pink car! I don't want to give any spoilers but if you want to see a silly, campy romp then check this film out when it plays in limited release later this fall. Spread the word and hopefully it will get bigger distribution!
