On Order



First time writer/director Jason Buxton explores the post-Columbine culture of fear that has permeated American society in this dark drama about an isolated teen whose idle threat yields devastating repercussions. Adolescent goth Sean Randall (Connor Jessup) has just come to the small town of Eastport to live with his hunting-enthusiast father Ricky (Michael Buie) when he strikes up a friendship with pretty and popular classmate Deanna (Alexia East). When Deanna's hot-headed, hockey-playing boyfriend Cory (Craig Arnold) responds by threatening the misfit newcomer, terrified Sean impulsively fires back a suggestive message that results in a police raid of his home, and the discovery of his father's extensive rifle collection. Combined with a presumed "hit list" that's discovered in Sean's possession, authorities draw the conclusion that Sean has been quietly plotting a school massacre, and place him in a youth prison until his trial date. Meanwhile, Sean's lawyer convinces him that the best option for shortening his stay behind bars and avoiding a lengthy trial is to please guilty despite his innocence. Though the plan works, the damage to Sean's reputation has already been done and from the moment he returns home, he is branded a menace by his entire community. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
