The Art of Getting By (2011)

Last Updated: Dec 2011

Believing the quote that you are born alone, die alone and everything else is an illusion, George (Freddie Highmore) doesn't see the point of life, school, or homework. Then he meets Sally (Emma Roberts) 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.
