Random Media and Cinedigm are releasing The Secret Lives Of Dorks on DVD on June 10th. Directed by Salomé Breziner and starring up-and-coming stars including Riley Voelkel (Glee), Vanessa Marano (Switched at Birth), Beau Mirchoff (MTV’s Awkward) and Gaelen Connell (Bandslam), The Secret Lives Of Dorks hits all the right teen angst buttons! With supporting roles played by veteran actor James Belushi (According to Jim), and Academy Award nominees Seymour Cassel (The Royal Tenenbaums) and Jennifer Tilly (Liar, Liar), this teen comedy should not be missed.
Payton (Gaelan Connell) is a pathetic dork, a comic book geek whose high school career is one hopeless faux pas after another. Yet he’s a dreamer and madly in love with the head cheerleader Carrie (Riley Voelkel), who he is determined to win over. But she is wise to his desperate advances, so to get off his radar she creates a plan to push him into the arms of a dorkette at the school, Samantha (Vanessa Marano). In this high school equation: Peyton wants Carrie; Carrie wants Peyton to hook up with Samantha; Samantha wants Peyton. But even the simplest formula can equal disaster.
This is a great teen drama. It is funny and fun! I love James Belushi in this too! Great for the whole family.
