There's no time quite as awkward as adolescence. Between the sky-high expectations of parents, the constant scrutiny of peers, and one's own raging hormones, something's got to give. And if, like Steven Carter (Ben Silverstone), you also happen to be gay, navigating your way through adolescence can be like hiking through a minefield! This charming and compelling comedy is cinematic valentine about coming of age and coming to terms with who you are.
Reasons to Buy
- A huge gay indie hit when it premiered at film festivals and art house cinemas in the late '90s, Get Real has long been out of print and has easily become the most frequently requested by our customers. We're thrilled it's available again!
- A sharply obsereved coming-of-age story, the film is infused with charm, humor, emotional and a knowing sense of the difficulties of being a gay teen.
- Not only beloved by our customers, Get Real drew raves from critics when it was released. Richard Rayner said in Harper's Bazaar that it "Shoudn't be missed. It mingles laughter and tears, and like its hero, is determined to make love soar above everything"
