“The film is not only an entertaining teen romp about a bizarre love triangle when best friends Rene and Frankie agree to attend prom together before a shy suitor emerges to invite Frankie to the dance, but also explores the struggles of being gay in high school in a funny and heartfelt way.”

– Eric D. Johnson, Secrets of the City

Death To Prom

Two best friends make the best of going to high school by dreaming up fashion magazine photo shoots, and bribing their siblings to model for them.  René indulges his fantasies and loves designing clothes. Frankie lives for her camera and punk rock. They both fall for Sasha, the shy soccer player with a soft spot for poems by Pushkin. When the three of them are caught between competing invitations to prom, their high-fashion drama could destroy their friendships along with the entire prom.

An updated, locally-shot take on a John Hughes high school romcom, “Death to Prom” is most notable for its three talented leads: Ricardo Vazquez as a gay fashionisto, Hina Khan as his sarcastic bestie and Andrew Keives as the athlete they both lust after. The design of “Prom” is aces, featuring glam costumes by “Project Runway” vet Christopher Straub and eye-popping locations.
