3. DVD: GBF
For popular teenagers Fawcett (Sasha Pieterse), Caprice (Xosha Roquemore), and ’Shley (Andrea Bowen), this season’s must-have accessory — and golden ticket to becoming prom queen — is a G.B.F., or a gay best friend. The only problem? There are no gay men at their school — who are out, at least. But a Grindr-like app allows the girls to identify the closeted Tanner (Michael J. Willett), and adopt him as their own, transforming him from a shy social outcast to the high school’s hottest commodity. Directed by Darren Stein (Jawbreaker) and written by George Northy, GBF is a fun and frothy romp through high school with nods to Pygmalion, Mean Girls, Glee, and John Hughes.
GBF is released February 11 on DVD. Join the cast and crew for the official release party Thursday, February 13, at 9 p.m. at The Abbey in West Hollywood. Get all the details here. – Daniel Reynolds
