Glee's Chris Colfer moves to the big screen in this movie which he wrote, executive produced and also stars in. He plays Carson Phillips, a high school senior who's destined for bigger things than his close-minded small town could ever offer. But his path to greatness is cut short when he's suddenly killed by a bolt of lightning in his school parking lot. Demonstrating that life really IS what happens while you're busy planning your future, Carson recounts the last few weeks of his life via witty, insightful flashbacks, including a blackmail scheme targeting the popular kids in school that he concocts with his best friend (Rebel Wilson), and a home life that includes his mom (Allison Janney) and estranged dad (Dermot Mulroney), who suddenly appears with his pregnant fiancée (Christina Hendricks). Think Perks of Being a Wallflower vibe.
