Hot Sheet: Guardians and Go-Go Boys

Our top 10 entertainment and events highlights this week include a nearly naked Zac Efron and Bear, go-go boy obsessions, and the Guardians of the Galaxy.



7. FILM: Around the Block
Directed by Sarah Spillane, Around the Block stars Christina Ricci as Dino Chalmers, a teacher who finds she won’t be teaching just Shakespeare in Sydney’s impoverished Redfern district. Many of her students are Aboriginal, and one in particular, Liam (Hunter Page-Lochard) has a talent for acting that Chalmers strives to foster. But Liam, whose father is in jail and whose brother is seeking vengeance for a dead uncle, has demons of his own to overcome. Around the Block premieres August 1 at the Arena Cinema in Hollywood, and LGBT audiences may also delight in the romantic interest of Ricci’s character, played by model Ruby Rose. — Daniel Reynolds
