A Eurythmics-obsessed, small-town Ohio youth comes to terms with his
sexual identity and his New Wave fashion sense in this gentle coming-out
 drama, which is set in 1984.

When closeted Sandusky teen Eric (Chris
Stafford) and his best friend, Maggie (Tina Holmes), accept summer jobs
in food service at the local amusement park, they befriend their lesbian
 manager, Angie (Lea DeLaria), and a gay college student named Rod
(Andersen Gabrych). Sparks fly between the two boys, even as Maggie
waits patiently in the wings for Eric's affections.

Rod eventually gives
 Chris the first-time experience he was looking for, then promptly heads
 back to Ohio State, leaving the younger guy to spend his entire senior
year looking for love -- and the perfect bleach job.

As Eric's outsider
fashions raise eyebrows with his loving parents, he learns that his
frustrated pianist mom (Stephanie McVay) is going to have to get a job
to help send him to study music in New York. Meanwhile, Eric ventures
out to the local gay disco, a hopping joint run by none other than his
old boss, Maggie, who shows him the ropes and gives him just enough rope
 to hang himself. Stung by a meaningless sexual experience and pining
away for the otherwise involved Rod, Eric decides to sleep with the
saintly Maggie. But he's too open and sensitive to pull a fast one over
on her; crestfallen at his rejection and his willingness to toy with her
 affections, she ends the friendship, leaving Eric to confide in his
mother -- and find his place in the gay community.

Written by Todd
Stephens, directed by David Moreton, and produced by both, Edge of
Seventeen was screened as part of the American Spectrum at Sundance in
1999. Stephens would return with the similarly themed Gypsy 83 in 2001.
