Hello, My Name Is Charlie (2009)
- Summaries (1)
Charlie is the social center of his high school - if someone wants something, they come to him and he tells them how to get it. Charlie can provide anything for anyone, whether it be answers for the upcoming biology exam, instructions on how to win prom queen, the best place to take a girl on a date, or just an ear willing to listen. Wielding an uncanny amount of power for a 17-year-old, Charlie is able to traverse the myriad high school cliques by remaining perfectly neutral, offering his services to anyone. Jock and punk, nerd and cheerleader, goth and valley girl - everyone knows Charlie, and Charlie knows everything about them. Or so he thinks. Charlie's facade of neutrality starts to crack as the students he helps begin to deal with problems more mature than their high school experience has prepared them for. Rising tensions between competing groups erupt in aggressive conflicts, and though Charlie has the power to stop these confrontations he chooses to watch from the sidelines. Caught in the middle of violent events he has set in motion, Charlie is forced to make a choice: hold on to his precious neutrality, or get off the fence and help his friends. A modern interpretation of how the church in Laodicea looked when John wrote "Because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth." (Rev. 3:16), "Hello, My Name is Charlie" examines how every decision - even seemingly trivial high school choices - has a moral consequence.
