Product Description

From the acclaimed creator of gay classics such as Edge of Seventeen and Another Gay Movie, comes a charming gay tale of youth, beauty and self-discovery. Adoring Stevie Nicks fan (Sara Rue) takes her Goth-loving gay best friend (Kett Turton) from a small town in rural Ohio on an unforgettable road trip to the bright-lights of New York City. They have one goal in mind and that is to enter the legendary "Night of a Thousand Stevies" contest and leave their insipid lives behind forever. The trip to the Big Apple soon turns into a life-changing journey as the velvet-clad outcasts encounter ailing divas, sexually-confused jocks and unravel a family mystery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent, funny and all round entertaining 25 Sep 2006
Format:DVD
First of all what a fantastic music score, so brilliant it made me dig out all my old Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac albums - and I can very close to going Goth again for the first time in nearly 15 years!

Essentially the film is about two teenage misfits in small town USA who run off to New York to the 'Night of a 1000 Stevie's'. Where the girl intends to compete in the soundalike competition. On the way they make contact with a variety of other misfits that add some interesting twists to the overal storyline.

The film explores ideas of individuality very accurately - in my opinion. it seems to ask the questions about how far people conform and more importantly why they choose to do so. Neither does the film shy away from recognising that in some situations being different is a conformity in itself - keenly portrayed towards the end of the film during an exchange with two other young men attending the 'Night of 1000 Stevie's'. Importantly it looks at how this sort of non-conformity can be as harsh and excluding as general conformity.

I don't see this as a 'gay film', one of the characters happens to be gay and explores this and what it means to him during the film. What is really good is to see a gay young man not conforming to certain 'idealised' types so prevalent in gay cinema. Kett Turton who plays Clive is somewhat geekish and skinny and is much more represenative of young gay men than the toned, tanned, pretty boys we so often see (see my review of 'Like It Is').

My favourite scene of the film is Sara Rue's rendition of the Stevie Nicks' song 'Talk to Me'. This young woman has a fantastic voice and I hope both her and Kett do very well for themselves. A great film! I so wish British 'gay themed' cinema was as good as this.

Film captures how things use to be on the goth scene of many years ago. I first saw this dvd in the U.S. when the girlfriend at the time hired it out from a video store. the main actress is still acting last time l checked and but you would not reconise her. the film is great but be warned. if you are narrow minded about curtains things such as if you have issues towards Gays, then its best not to watch the film. but if you are like me, straight and open minded. you will enjoy the film more.. I also like the fact that there is a old skool Pontiac Trans Am car (same as smokey and the bandits car). anyway. go and buy it and enjoy it. especially if you are either a goth or a x goth or in to alternative music like the cure or stevie nicks!

5.0 out of 5 stars cool and gentle 1 May 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Saw this film when it came out, was trying to remember what it was called to get it on DVD, glad I found it. A great road trip film about dealing with the difficult parts of life and using the strength to help guide you to follow your dreams. I think its up there with some of the best brat pack films of the 1980's
