George, a lonely and fatalistic teen who has made it all the way to his senior year without ever having done a real day of work, is befriended by Sally, a popular but complicated girl who recognizes in him a kindred spirit.
Shy 14-year-old Duncan goes on summer vacation with his mother, her overbearing boyfriend, and her boyfriend's daughter. Having a rough time fitting in, Duncan finds an unexpected friend in Owen, manager of the Water Wizz water park.
High schooler Greg, who spends most of his time making parodies of classic movies with his co-worker Earl, finds his outlook forever altered after befriending a classmate who has just been diagnosed with cancer.
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.

I'm in love with you. I always have been. I thought you were the unfair one, but it was unfair of me not to say it. So I've said it. I was nothing. I felt like nothing. Less than. You changed that.

George Zinavoy (Freddie Highmore) is an apathetic loner. He is doing nothing the whole year and is in danger of expulsion unless he can do all the work. Sally (Emma Roberts) is popular and a complicated rebel. She is an MPDG. They cut class together. She treats him like a kid, but is there more?
Gavin Wiesen's first full length feature is a NY indie with a couple of great young actors, great NY locations, but a standard boy meets girl story. Freddie Highmore has the look of weak kid. Emma Roberts has one great cruel manipulative emotionally vicious scene. The ending wraps up too well. It's a good first time effort for Gavin.
