It's the '80s once again, and the John Hughes-styled high school comedy gets a fresh twist in this touching, coming-of-age tale. New wave angst and gender-bending fashion are all the rage, but the new kid at school, Chance Marquis (Tad Hilgenbrinck of American Pie Presents: Band Camp) is trying to find new ways to stand out. Being an odd and somewhat awkward teenager makes him the target of the school bully. To deal with this dilemma, Chance turns to the opposite ends of the high school spectrum for help. On one side is the flamboyant drag queen and on the other, the varsity jock, Levi Sparks (Brett Chukerman of Eating Out 2) with whom Chance develops a unique friendship. Chock-full of the comic conventions of the high school genre - the idiot faculty, the good-hearted but delusional parents, the fairy tale reversal of popularity - The Curiosity Of Chance is a frothy bit of nostalgic filmmaking. But knowing the genre doesn't mean its story won't also touc h your heart, as Chance battles the bigots to make high school the diverse utopia it should have always been.

In The Curiosity of Chance, his feature film debut, writer/director Russell P. Marleau pays homage to the '80s high school comedies of John Hughes and switches the perspective to that of an openly gay teenager.

"The Curiosity of Chance" is one of those movies we have been hearing about for quite a while and it has taken a long time to make it to DVD. It has been quite a hit on the festival circuit and now all of us will get a chance to see it.

This film hits home for many that never came out in the open about their sexual fealing. Afrade of others and the way they would be treated if some one found out and told. Chance's story is very colorfull and over the top yet makes a very good point.... Read More
