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.
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.
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.
Rotten: Although Norman succeeds in fleshing out its troubled main character, the actions of his peers are consistently harder to accept.
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.
