This is one of those movies that if you catch on cable, you start watching and then are drawn into. I first caught it from the middle while flipping channels and then checked when it would be on again so I could see the whole thing. It is a very different movie. A tomboy, (I can't remember what her name was so for this write-up I'll call her Shawn) who lives with a lesbian mother and is taunted by everybody at school. She also seems to be failing all her classes. One day a girl (Evie) from her school happens into her mother's gas station. On a whim, Shawn decides to see what Evie needs. Apparently there is a problem with her tire. Shawn is immediately attracted to Evie, who seems totally lost explaining her tire problem. Evie seems to notice how Sean is looking at her and after she leaves the station, they each start thinking about the other.
Evie is the opposite of Shawn. She is very attractive and hangs with the "in" crowd at school. Evie has an egotistical, pushy boyfriend and one day has a fight with him at school. She goes to the girls room and happens upon Shawn in the bathroom. She then pours her guts out to Shawn who is totally sympathetic.
Shawn then starts telling her family clan that Evie is her girlfriend, though nothing has happened yet. Shawn decides to get bold and writes Evie a note that she slips into Evie's locker at school. Evie finds the note and says nothing of it for several days, while thinking constantly about Shawn. Evie is battling her feelings for Shawn, worried that her snobbish girlfriends would look down on her if she even associated with Shawn.
Evie can take it no longer and goes to the gas station where she first met Shawn and strikes up a friendship. The friendship starts to slowly bloom over a period of time with the girls sharing caresses and kisses. When Evie's mother needs to go out of town for a weekend, the girls plan to take their relationship to the next step.
I don't want to give the rest of the movie away but just to say that it is fun with a few laughs thrown in.
The movie shows that just because someone is different, they can have the same feelings and desires as anyone else. This is well worth renting or setting your DVR, if it is again shown on cable.
