Storyline

"GEOGRAPHY CLUB" is based on Brent Hartinger's best-selling critically acclaimed novel: "What am I looking for?" asks 16-year old Russell Middlebrook of himself as he heads off on his newest adventure. Russell is still going on dates with girls, while Kevin will do anything to prevent his football teammates from finding out what he is concealing, Min and Terese tell everyone they're really just good friends, and Ike can't figure out who he is or what he wants to be. But the truth is too hard to hide - at least from each other - so they form the Geography Club. Nobody else will discover the truth about them as no other students in their right minds would ever join a club that sounds so boring. Their secrets will be safe from classmates. But are they? "Geography Club" is a smart, fast, moving and funny account of contemporary teenagers as they discover their own sexual identities, dreams and values and not merely live out their parents' desires and ambitions. Russell, Kevin, Min, Terese... Written by Edmund Entin

One outstanding coming out movie
3 December 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The high school where the subjects of this film go have an after school club called The Geography Club. Not something you think would be a great activity. Imagine discussing topography and climate of individual regions on our club as an exciting activity after school.

But in this place it is a euphemism where kids who are LGBT or wondering if can go for a bit of safe space. God only knows they need it. For those who are stereotypes they're needing it bad and that's obvious.

But our main characters Cameron Deane Stewart and Justin Deeley are not stereotypes. They're both jocks, Stewart runs track and Deeley is a football player who gets Stewart on the team just so they can hang out and it seem normal. These two should they want to make the leap and it's a pretty formidable decision need this also as the film demonstrates.

Rough as it is to come out, Stewart gets untimely ripped from the closet and that's ready or not you have to deal with it then. Saddest case of all in the film is Russell Olivares for whom school is just living hell. He doesn't even know if he really is attracted to men, he only knows he's at peace only when he plays the cello.

Best moment for me is when Deeley walks into the Geography Club and past a phalanx of future Trump voters, some former teammates. He's had a bad time when Stewart was outed and they react differently to the experience.

Geography Club is highly recommended for young gay audiences. Should be required for PFLAG audiences.
