Glee‘s own Kurt Hummel, one Mr. Christopher Colfer, wrote and starred in his first movie, Struck by Lightning — but before the film’s official release on January 11, theaters across the country will hold a one night only special interactive Q&A screening on January 6.
During a live and interactive webcast Q&A, which coincides with the LA premiere, Colfer will answer questions submitted via social media at the conclusion of the film.
Directed by Saved!‘s Brian Dannelly, Struck By Lightning centers around a high school senior (Colfer) eager to get out of his small town only to be suddenly killed by a bolt of lightning in his school parking lot.
He recounts the last few weeks of his life through flashbacks, including a blackmail scheme targeting the popular kids in school that he concocts with his best friend (Rebel Wilson), a home life that includes a mother (Allison Janney) who’s more interested in the bottle than her son’s future and an estranged father (Dermot Mulroney) who suddenly appears with a pregnant fiancée (Christina Hendricks).
You can also catch the film, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival to a standing ovation, on demand through iTunes, Amazon and VUDU.
