New Clip Film Series To Screen Curiosity of Chance
The new clip Film Series is proud to announce the selection of Curiosity of Chance as its January Film Series film. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales of this film will benefit Winter Pride Tampa Bay. Curiosity of Chance will screen on Wednesday, January 23, 2008, at the Muvico Baywalk Theatres in St. Petersburg.
Writer/Director Russell P. Marleau gives the John Hughes-styled high school comedy a twist in this touching coming-of-age tale. It's the 1980's, when new wave angst and gender-bending fashion were all the rage. The new kid at school Chance Marquis (Tad Hilgenbrinck of American Pie Presents: Band Camp), however, is out. And his being a gay, 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 end is the flamboyant drag queen and at the other, the varsity jock, Levi Sparks (Brett Chukerman) on whom Chance has a bit of a crush. Chockfull 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 like with the best of John Hughes, knowing the genre doesn't mean its story won't also touch your heart.
Curiosity of Chance will screen one time only, Wednesday, January 23, 2008, 7:30 pm at the Muvico Baywalk Theatres in St Petersburg. One dollar from all January clip Film Series sales will be donated to Winter Pride Tampa Bay. Tickets for all screenings are $9.00 for adults, and $7.00 for students, and may be purchased in advance for will-call pickup at www.tiglff.com or at their site, www.cliptampabay.com.
