High school senior Carson Phillips (Chris Colfer, Glee) was destined for bigger things than his close-minded small town could ever offer. He was on a path to greatness, but destiny had a different plan when he was suddenly killed by a bolt of lightning in his school parking lot.
Demonstrating that life is what happens while you re busy planning your future, Carson recounts the last few weeks of his life via witty, insightful flashbacks, including a blackmail scheme targeting the popular kids in school that he concocts with his best friend (Rebel Wilson, Bridesmaids), a home life that includes a mother (Allison Janney, Juno, The West Wing) who s more interested in the bottle than her son s future, and an estranged father (Dermot Mulroney, New Girl, My Best Friend s Wedding) who suddenly appears with a pregnant fiancée (Christina Hendricks, Mad Men).
Chris Colfer outdoes Tina Fey with his script... it feels exactly like the fantasy I would have liked to see late at night when I was twelve or thirteen, wondering why I didn t fit in. --Indiewire
Offers up plenty of smart and quirky moments...driven by terrific performances by Alison Janney, Christina Hendricks and Dermot Mulroney. --Screen Daily
If you're not keeping a keen eye on the camerawork, it's easy to get lost in the film's assets - the characters are likable, the jokes are spot on & it's an all-around good time. --Movies.com
