The Curiosity of Chance is a 2006 film directed by Russell P. Marleau, produced by Bigfoot Entertainment and starring Tad Hilgenbrink.

Set " In Europe in the 1980s, flamboyant and gay 16-year-old Chance Marquis (Tad Hilgenbrink) shows up at an international high school in a top hat and tails, immediately attracting the attention of the "queer-hating" resident bully, among others. Through his involvement in the school newspaper, he meets an introverted photographer with a mysterious briefcase, and while practicing tennis, he befriends a catty fashionista, both of whom act as his wingmen in his new high school. He also meets the jock-next-door, with whom he forms a tentative friendship, despite the jock''s cacophonous group of friends. The film follows Chance through a year of high school, with its attendant drama, successes and hijinksincluding sneaking into a drag bar, where Chance begins to explore his true self.

Themes underscored throughout the movie include facing your fears as you grow into adulthood, and the barriers that people put up in order to cope with life. Chance claims to be strong with his nonchalant attitude, but when photos of him in drag show up all over school, Chance must face his own preachings of staying true to yourself.
