PFLAG Tulare Kings Counties will screen the comedy “Geography Club” at it’s August meeting, on Sunday the 16th.
From the Internet Movie Data Base:
“GEOGRAPHY CLUB” is based on Brent Hartinger’s best-selling critically acclaimed novel: “What am I looking for?” asks 16-year old Russell Middlebrook of himself as he heads off on his newest adventure. Russell is still going on dates with girls, while Kevin will do anything to prevent his football teammates from finding out what he is concealing, Min and Terese tell everyone they’re really just good friends, and Ike can’t figure out who he is or what he wants to be. But the truth is too hard to hide – at least from each other – so they form the Geography Club. Nobody else will discover the truth about them as no other students in their right minds would ever join a club that sounds so boring. Their secrets will be safe from classmates. But are they? “Geography Club” is a smart, fast, moving and funny account of contemporary teenagers as they discover their own sexual identities, dreams and values and not merely live out their parents’ desires and ambitions. Russell, Kevin, Min, Terese and Ike may not learn about actual places in their undercover social club, but they daringly explore the danger-filled, clique-mined landscape of Goodkind High School and courageously begin their journey in the exciting, still uncharted terrain of the human heart.

The meeting starts at 3pm, at the Education and Cultural Center, Congregation B’nai David, 1039 S. Chinowth, Visalia.
