It’s a coming of age story at a time of uncertainty, where people are figuring out who they are, what they care about, what they’re going to fight for, who they’re going to defend,’ said Matthew Tranchin, president of March For Science.

‘You see these emotional journeys of young people, set at a time in their lives where they’re trying to find themselves and find success.’   

The subsequent video release of the film helped spur its word-of-mouth popularity, which led to its cult classic moniker over the years.
