You’re Invited To A Special Premiere Of Chris Colfer’s Debut Film, “Struck By Lightning”

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.

      Not that it matters, but is there a gay angle to the movie, other than Colfer being openly gay IRL and Rebel Wilson being in it?

      @redcarpet: There are two gay characters in the movie, if that answers your question.

      Cool that he got Rebel Wilson, not sure she looks like she is still in high school, but hell she’s so funny who gives a shit.

      Still he’s an openly gay actor who came out at the beginning of his career so I will definitly buy some tickets for this.

      @redcarpet: Chris Colfer’s character is not clearly gay or straight but one of the people he blackmails is a gay high school jock not ready to come out of the closet.
