Storyline

Two best friends make the best of going to high school by dreaming up fashion magazine photo shoots, and bribing their siblings to model for them. René indulges his fantasies and loves designing clothes. Frankie lives for her camera and punk rock. They both fall for Sasha, the shy soccer player with a soft spot for poems by Pushkin. When the three of them are caught between competing invitations to prom, their high-fashion drama could destroy their friendships along with the entire prom. Written by Jeremy

Imagine Pretty in Pink if Andie and Duckie both had a crush on the same guy.

That's pretty much what the story is. It's clean cut and pure fun in a world not ran by Jerry Folwell. The story is about two high school kids who have a crush on the same guy. One boy, Rene, and one girl Frankie, both get a crush on Sasha, who isn't exactly clear on where he stands. What results is an often funny and dynamic story that leaves you wanting more.

Death to Prom is an independent feature film that works better than a lot of independent films I've seen recently. That's because it's actually funny, the acting isn't half bad and well because the story works. It doesn't get over it's head or try and do too much. The editing and sound are clean. The soundtrack works. The color is great.

The screenplay won the Mcknight Fellowship from the IFC and Coppola's Zoetrope contest. From there Stenerson decided to direct the project by himself and it's been playing at various festivals since last fall. Catch it at a festival if you can!
