Will Grayson is surviving high school by following two cardinal rules: 1) Shut Up 2) Try Not To Care. His best friend is Tiny: “the world’s largest person who is really, really gay,” whose physical bulk and outgoing personality overshadow Will’s whole existence. When a fake-ID mess-up leads to Will hanging out alone on a cold Chicago night, he meets… Will Grayson. Other Will Grayson is a clinically depressed gay kid from Iowa, who has ended up alone in the city, and who is having one of the worst nights in a life that has included some pretty rotten nights. Tiny, who falls in and out of love constantly, immediately falls for this new Will… but this time it might mean something more for everyone involved.
Will Grayson, Will Grayson is about the two Wills, their relationships with Tiny, with their families, with their friends and girlfriends, and about how all those things can change, slowly or in an instant. It’s a sweet story and funny, but also an honest look at cruelty, selfishness, mental illness and also deep love.

With no formal training, he recasts the music department to teach the fundamentals of rock n' roll... and if he manages to turn his students into a rockin' band that can beat his former bandmates in a battle of the bands, then he'll have achieved his goals.
The movie is rated PG-13.
Green Witch is a fairy tale set in a world where a band of marauders known as The Horde have reduced civilization to ashes. Green’s family was killed in the first Horde attack, and she has spent the time since in near seclusion in her home in the forest. Her garden is her refuge, and while the world around slowly rebuilds itself she tends her garden and collects stories one by one from the people of the village. She longs for only one thing- a boy she loves who has gone away to find his missing family. Green begins to hear rumors of five witches, one of whom is supposed to be able to grant a heart’s desire. She heads out to collect the witches’ stories and to see if they can help her find the boy she loves, a journey that takes her on an adventure that is a pleasure to read.
Green Witch is a sequel to Green Angel, but you don’t have to have read the first one to enjoy the second. It is a lyrically written story, poetic in tone, and full of beautiful turns of phrase. Green is a striking character, as are her companions. Alice Hoffman does a great job of bringing to life a world in ruins and the people struggling to rebuild their lives.
