Who’S It For? Mopey high school students.


George (Highmore) is intelligent (we know this because he’s always reading) and rich (though not as rich as some classmates, so that’s supposed to make him relatable) but despite getting the kind of education and chances that many kids dream of, he skips classes, ignores homework, and generally behaves like he’s above it all.

New Release: The Art of Getting By DVD and Blu-ray

29 September 2011 9:30 AM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Release Date: Nov. 29, 2011

Format: DVD and  Blu-ray

Studio: 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment

Emma Roberts and Freddie Highmore ponder the possibilities in The Art of Getting By.

The Art of Getting By is a coming-of-age romantic comedy-drama film starring Emma Roberts (It’s Kind of a Funny Story) and Freddie Highmore (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) set against the backdrop of very beautiful New York City.

The movie spins the tale of George (Highmore), a lonely and fatalistic high school teen who’s made it all the way to his senior year without ever having done a real day of work, and Sally (Roberts), a popular but complicated gal who recognizes in him a kindred spirit. Might there be love in the air? Or maybe just a deep friendship and mutual respect?

Directed by Gavin Wiesen, The Art of Getting By offers a healthy roster of co-stars, including Rita Wilson »
