Alexander Never and Justin Preston in Rogue Machine's, THE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE

Reviewed by Tracey Paleo, Gia On The Move

It’s the late 90’s…

and you’re hanging out in a boy’s basement bedroom, somewhere in suburban America with two teenagers as they stay up on a school night; chugging soda, watching MTV, and preparing for the future. As the morning approaches, their seemingly innocent sleepover reveals another purpose.
