Sara Rue and Kett Turton turn in two engaging performances in this retelling of a familiar tale with a Goth
twist including a bow to Stevie Nicks. As a would be diva and a gay teen with an artistic soul, the two
youths feel constrained by their lives in Sandusky, Ohio and set off for all that New York mythically offers
It is in the journey as much as at the destination that they find their strength and confidence and learn about
the value and limitations of their deep friendship. Much as within the youth led Goth movement, itself,
the darkness of the film and their lives hides the ultimate spirit of hope and redemption.
For many, the music will be a welcome bonus; for all, the visual and spiritual pleasures of these adeptly
portrayed characters will be the lasting impression.
