Sometimes a film doesn’t have to bang a loud drum. Sometimes it is enough to enjoy a pleasing production, talented actors (Molly Shannon, Missi Pyle & Paul Reiser) and a charming, sweet, good looking gay kid with a dream. Miles is a high school senior in a hick town, desperate to go to college in the city. But his good-for-nothing father squandered his college money on tawdry affairs. The solution? A volleyball scholarship! Unfortunately, his high school doesn’t have a boys volleyball team, so he joins the girls team, much to the horror of townspeople. Nathan Adlo ’s biographical film is a simple story about a kid who happens to be gay and will do anything to get to college. At the end of the day, Miles is just a guy with a dream and maybe we need to let ourselves believe that sometimes sweet still exists, good guys win and dreams do come true. (Sunny Hall)
