Zach Galifianakis, Keir Gilchrist, Lauren Graham and Emma Roberts star in this uplifting comedy about finding sanity in the most unlikely of places. Sometimes what's in your head isn't as crazy as you think…that's certainly true for Craig (Gilchrist), a stressed-out teenager who checks himself into a mental health clinic for some time out. What he finds instead is an unlikely mentor (Galifianakis), a potential new romance (Roberts) and an opportunity to begin anew. Charming, witty and smart, it's a coming-of-age story that's kind of a funny story…
This is a great film, if you take the film at face value and ignore the negative comments that some people have left you will be rewarded with a humourous and thought provocing film. Great acting and typecasting, i would highly recommend.
Don't be deceived by the promotional photo for this film. I thought it was going to be a rom-com but was persuaded by my wife to give it a try on the basis that 'Focus' normally make good films. I loved this film. Had the feeling of a true indie gem. Intelligent dialogue, great acting and heartwarming. Some people have found this film too slow but I thought the pace was just right.
A touching film with brilliant acting and editing
A very touching movie, which manages to always keep the right balance between maintaining an overall light atmosphere, and yet not making a mockery of the rough situation within the ward. The editing is great, the three main actors are also very good, overall a must see movie!
