Garrett Clayton's New Movie 'Reach' Gets October 19 Release

Garrett Clayton can soon be seen in the new film Reach, out October 19.

The Teen Beach Movie actor stars in the flick as socially awkward band geek, Steven Turano, divulges to an online pro-suicide support group that he plans to kill himself. Although his first attempt is unsuccessful, he is determined to find a way to escape his suffering.

Steven harbors a deep resentment towards his widowed father, Steve Turano, and he is constantly picked-on by former childhood best friend and high school bully, Nick Perkins. However, when Clarence West, the new quirky kid in school, befriends him, Steven’s plans are side-tracked, and he begins to REACH out beyond his comfort zone to form stronger relationships with his father, friends and teacher, Mr. Tony.

“October, being the National Bullying Prevention Month is the perfect opportunity to share the message of REACH: Kindness, even the smallest of gestures, may change someone’s life forever,” said Maria Capp, one of the film’s writers. “Reach is about a bullied teen boy reaching for what is possible because of the kindness, friendship and affirmation of just ONE person. In making REACH, our desire was to create awareness, conversation and empathy surrounding the consequences of our actions, or inactions, as they relate to bullying.”
