Stick teenagers into any off-kilter cultural niche and you have a coming-of-age story ripe with self-discovery. Enter “Slash,” the charming new movie about a 15-year-old introvert (Michael Johnston) with a penchant for homoerotic fan fiction. Teased at school, he finds a kindred spirit in a slightly older classmate (Hannah Marks) who encourages him to delve into his racy desires.
The Huffington Post has an exclusive clip in which the pair first meet and our protagonist starts to come out of his shell. Watch below, and catch Clay Liford’s movie on iTunes now or in select theaters Friday.
