BEWARE THE GONZO

Drama

First-time director Bryan Goluboff’s BEWARE THE GONZO is the story of a 17-year old student who starts a revolution in his high school but nearly loses himself in the process. Eddie "Gonzo" Gilman (Ezra Miller) is the quintessential outsider – too smart to be a follower and too outspoken to be accepted.

When Gavin Riley, the hugely popular editor of the newspaper (Jesse McCartney) fires Gonzo from the paper, Gavin has no idea what events he has inadvertently set into motion. Once ousted, Gonzo takes on a new role and thus a new era at the school is born. Gonzo becomes a rebel with a cause.

Gonzo decides to become the voice of the oppressed, uniting all the nerds, outcasts, and geeks in the school. With help from a beautiful outsider (Zoë Kravitz), he begins publishing his own underground newspaper, one that isn’t afraid to question authority and infuriate the school’s principal and staff. But the more he uncovers about the injustices in his school, the more he learns that the truth comes with consequences in this fresh teen-angst comedy. BEWARE THE GONZO also features Amy Sedaris, Campbell Scott, and Judah Friedlander.
