Description

Adapted from the young adult novel by onetime New York club kid James St. James, this high school comedy nods to classics like "Clueless" and "Napoleon Dynamite" in the saga of Billy Bloom. As played by Alex Lawther ("The Imitation Game"), he's a boldly confident, wildly eccentric teenager, who faces intolerance and persecution at his ultra conservative high school, and decides to fight back on behalf of all the misunderstood freaks of the world by running for the title of homecoming queen. The film marks the directorial debut of Trudie Styler, actress, movie producer, wife of rock star Sting and mother of indie-film fave Mickey Sumner.
