Synopsis: John Keats famously wrote: "Beauty is truth, truth beauty, that is all; ye know on earth, and all ye need to know." Page, a 16-year-old, is about to find out that Keats was dead wrong. Page is a misfit, who dreams about being beautiful and popular. She feels unattractive and trapped in her own body, which she considers to be average if not downright repulsive. Only Page is anything but average. She has a special gift: She can communicate telepathically and move objects with her mind. This gift enables her to pull off the biggest escape of all, an escape from herself. But Page is about to learn the hard way that beauty isn't everything, after all.
Screening Time: October 25th, 2:30 pm
