Movie Review: Geography Club

The overall theme of this movie is thus. If you're in the closet, a high school student and want to connect with other high school students, create a student group that nobody will join like the Geography Club.

The protagonist of this story is Russell (below, left) who tries hooking up with someone anonymously online by agreeing to meet him at the local park. The person never shows but he does bump into and meet Kevin (below, right) who is on the high school football team. Kevin also has his best friend Gunnar who is overweight and hoping to leave high school not a virgin.

Russell and Kevin end up connecting at some kind of school camp situation and make out in the open one night by Min, a fellow student. That puts Kevin into panic mode and he gets Russell onto the football team to avoid blowing his cover. That occurs through another unlikely series of events.

I have to admit that the fascinating thing about this movie is the theme of the conflict between what Russell thinks is "true love" and his integrity. This is definitely a great date night movie.
