Not Just Another Teen Movie


The Art of Getting By (2011) is about a high school boy who thinks that life is about more than just the mundane things of high school. I have to say that I really enjoyed this film–I always like these quirky, indie, character-driven movies that Emma Roberts has been doing lately. The characters are normal people–so much more relatable than the big blockbuster type movies. Fredie Highmore (who I will always think of as a little kid because of Peter in Finding Neverland) plays a character who isn’t “normal.” But the way he is perceived, he is a normal teenager. He;s looking for something, for himself. High school is all about feeling like an outcast. And here that’s seen as a good thing. He finds what is important to him and that’s really the only thing in life that matters.
