Wallace, who is burned out from a string of failed relationships, forms an instant bond with Chantry, who lives with her longtime boyfriend. Together, they puzzle out what it means if your best friend is also the love of your life.
Believing the quote that you are born alone, die alone and everything else is an illusion, George doesn't see the point of life, school, or homework. Then he meets Sally and he now has a reason to go to school and make friends, even if he's not ready to admit to himself or to her that he likes her. The school's principal and art teacher introduce him to an alumni, and successful artist, Dustin, who can help guide George along life's path, but other distractions start surfacing, and George might not even be able to graduate from high school.

My favorite part of the book is how the town's layout us described from the perspective of a bee traveling from one side of town to the other. It's so visual. So, I guess what Hardy's doing is aligning his point of view not with an all-seeing God but with an insect: the tiniest, humblest creature in nature. Which is pretty Romantic.
I think you just found your term paper, George.

The Art of Getting By. Being somewhat of an expert at this just getting by in life thing. I loved it. This is for the younger crowd and being an old man. I still got the drift of the plot. A good watch not to be missed. Are players in this film grow up, well there last year of school, they find what's important to them and go with it. Some facts in life are hard to face, and our fears sometimes overwhelm us in doing the things we want to the most.
Tho are parents at time will dive us to do thing we don't like, Doing right by yourself is what's best and shown here.
Not only do are two love struck kids grow up but so do their parents.
Very moving, I didn't shed a tear. It did bring to light what we take for granted.
