Reelout: First Period
Friday February 6th 9pm The Screening Room
FIRST PERIOD d. Charlie Vaughn/98min/USA/2014
New girl Cassie and school outcast Maggie are easily the most unpopular girls at their high school. Together, they decide the way to win the hearts of cute boys and popular girls is to enter–and win–the annual Talent Show. But rivals Heather, Other Heather, and their popular boyfriends Dirk and Brett will stop at nothing to keep Cassie and Maggie the laughing stock of the school. It’s going to take courage, a make over, and maybe even a rap battle to beat them in true 80s style.
