Whatever happened to the Peanuts Gang originally created by the late Charles Schulz? In an unauthorized parody, the beloved comic strip characters are now all grown up and stuck in high school where sex, drugs and identity are now the topic of conversation. CB’s dog has died, his best friend Van is strung-out on something, the little red-headed girl pushes Van’s sister to destructive acts of violence, and Beethoven has a crush on CB. The inevitability of adulthood offers an evocative, yet hopeful look into the gang’s teenage psyche: a once popular boy in an existential dilemma; a battered pianist; an arsonist ex-girlfriend; two drunk cheerleaders; a homophobic quarterback; a burnt-out Buddhist; and a sister who’s a drama queen.
