'Struck by Lightning'

Release date: Jan. 11 

What It's About: An ambitious high school senior (Chris Colfer, a.k.a. Glee's Kurt Hummel) blackmails his fellow students into writing for the literary magazine, with the help of his best friend (Rebel Wilson).

Why We're Psyched: This indie coming-of-age comedy is a labor of love for Colfer, who wrote the script when he was just 16. It will be a treat to see him play a very different character from Kurt, bolstered by an excellent cast that includes Mad Men's Christina Hendricks, Modern Family's Sarah Hyland and former West Wing star Allison Janney.
