If the story of Glee was told by someone who had actually been to Ohio, you’d get FULL OUT: INSIDE OHIO SHOW CHOIR. Bursting with energy, humor, and sparkling personalities, the film follows the journeys of four high school show choirs (three of them in the Northeast Ohio area!) as they prepare for a show-tune soaked season of vocal competition. As the school year progresses, each group faces its own unique challenges—from school levy failures to personal illnesses to competition losses. Though the choirs rarely intersect with each other in person, they are linked by an intense love of performing and an adoration of the tight-knit communities they’ve built. The film’s stories cross quickly, offering brief glimpses and check-ins as the months progress, propelling the students through the year, hopeful of a victory down the road. Director Audrey Leach’s light and laidback touch allows the film’s spirited characters to take center stage. FULL OUT: INSIDE OHIO SHOW CHOIR shines as the perfect depiction of the epic highs and lows of high school show choir from a lens that truly understands its leads who, at the end of the day, are just teenagers trying to express themselves and have fun. —B.R.
