STRUCK BY LIGHTNING, the smart, irreverent, coming-of-age comedy from the mind of GLEE star Chris Colfer, opens with a bang. Literally. Seventeen year old Carson Phillips is determined to make something of himself and blaze a trail beyond his crummy high school, when he is suddenly struck by a bolt of lightning. The incident is the spark to a wickedly funny story about a young man who devises a blackmailing scheme to improve his chances of getting accepted into a top college... but what he accomplishes is much more profound.
