Struck by Lightning, directed by Brian Dannelly (Saved!), debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival. The cast also includes Allison Janney, Polly Bergen, Rebel Wilson, Christina Hendricks, Dermot Mulroney, Sarah Hyland and Angela Kinsey.
High school senior Carson Phillips (Colfer) was destined for bigger things than his close-minded small town could ever offer. He was on a path to greatness, but destiny had a different plan when he was suddenly killed by a bolt of lightning in his school parking lot.
Demonstrating that life is what happens while you’re busy planning your future, Carson recounts the last few weeks of his life via witty, insightful flashbacks, including a blackmail scheme targeting the popular kids in school that he concocts with his best friend (Wilson), and a home life that includes a mother (Janney) who’s more interested in the bottle than her son’s future and an estranged father (Mulroney) who suddenly appears with a pregnant fiancée (Hendricks).
