Fox Searchlight has released the trailer for the coming-of-age drama The Art of Getting By (formerly titled Homework). I caught the film at Sundance and kind of loathed the hell out of it, but maybe you like cloying movies with underdeveloped characters whining about how hard life is for white upper-class teenagers living in New York City. If you enjoy movies like that, you will love The Art of Getting By.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer plus two new images from the film. The Art of Getting By also stars Michael Angarano, Rita Wilson, and Blair Underwood. The film opens in limited release on June 17th.
Here’s the trailer (via MTV):
Here’s the official synopsis for The Art of Getting By:
THE ART OF GETTING BY stars Freddie Highmore (Finding Neverland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) as George, a lonely and fatalistic teen who’s made it all the way to his senior year without ever having done a real day of work, who is befriended by Sally (Emma Roberts – Scream 4), a beautiful and complicated girl who recognizes in him a kindred spirit.
