This has very warm drama club energy to it and I'm here for it.

Not really related, but I saw the band called Dramarama in the 90's in Memphis and the lead singer was the most egregious offender in the "acting out the words" vice that I have every seen.

"Tell (talking hand) me (points to chest) what (shrugs) is on (points down) your (points to you) mind (points to temple)!"

Coming back around to the actual topic, this is a good interview with Jonathan Wysocki about the origins of the film. (It's essentially his teen diary!)

At first I thought this was *made* in 1994 and was shocked I'd somehow managed to miss a queer 90s flick (except for Philadelphia, of course, which I've avoided for decades). Sounds great, and is also on Hulu, Tubi and other streamers.

I saw this on Kanopy recently! It's a very tough sell getting me to believe that drama nerds of all people are all deeply straight and religious, but it's a decent movie in general. Wish they'd kept the costumes on longer. Glad they had moments of being friends and geeking out over things, not just fighting non-stop.
