Giveaway: ‘Geek Charming’ with ‘Modern Family’ Star Sarah Hyland

posted by Nell Minow

Sarah Hyland stars in the very cute Disney Channel movie Geek Charmingas Dylan, a popular high school princess whose only aspiration is to be even more of a popular high school princess.  Matt Prokop is Josh, the “film geek” who needs a subject for his documentary.  But there is more to both of them than it first appears and even Dylan and Josh are in for a surprise when they discover that populars and geeks are not as different as they thought.  Based on book by Robin Palmer, it is a smart, fun, and funny story and Hyland is an especially appealing actress.
