About the Movie

Norman tells the story of Norman Long (Dan Byrd), a self-aware and darkly funny teen who is trying to handle his daily high school existence. An unexpected set of life-changing circumstances turns his world upside down and then ultimately right side up as he meets the magnetic Emily (Emily VanCamp). With love, humility and a heavy dose of truth, he emerges to face challenges not meant for a boy his age.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: There's something sweet about Jonathan Segal's modest high school drama, "Norman," despite the contrivances of its protagonist's predicament and its stacking of the emotional deck. – Andy Webster, New York Times, Oct 21, 2011

Fresh: Jonathan Segal's polished sophomore feature effectively grows more serious as it confronts the already grieving hero with the imminent loss of a second parent. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Oct 20, 2011

Fresh: For first-time screenwriter Wingate and Segal, in only his second feature (2004's "The Last Run), it's impressive work - they never overplay the pity card, opting for insight into the complexities of growing up instead. – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Oct 20, 2011

Rotten: Although Norman succeeds in fleshing out its troubled main character, the actions of his peers are consistently harder to accept. – Benjamin Mercer, Village Voice, Oct 18, 2011

Norman is beautiful...

I love this great film. The performances are amazing and so moving. I highly recommend it! Watch it as soon as you can!

So excited for Norman

I saw this film in the theaters and loved it so much! I am super excited to see it again.

Most morose movie of all time

Pointless. Depressing. Bring a rope because you'll want to kill yourself after watching this. Typically, I love teenage angst movies like Perks of being Wallflower. But this thing is just humorless crap that tries to masquerade as poetry. It's not. Please iTunes, get rid of this thing.
