    The Art of Getting By

    George (Freddie Highmore) is a senior at a posh Manhattan prep school, but his disaffected attitude leaves little room for toeing the line. He then is befriended by Sally, a popular but complicated girl who recognizes in him a kindred spirit.

    Globe and Mail
    June 17, 2011

    The vapidity of The Art of Getting By goes beyond the anthill-sized dramatic stakes. The dialogue, while occasionally epigrammatic, is tone-deaf to individual speech rhythms.

    Detroit News
    June 17, 2011

    The Art of Getting By wants to be sweet and insightful, but ends up scattered and slight.

    Newark Star-Ledger
    June 17, 2011

    A dull yet extremely self-important drama about rich, badly parented kids who feel sorry for themselves.

    Washington Post
    June 17, 2011

    For anyone not in a similar state of age-related solipsism - i.e., anyone outside the 16- to 25-year-old age bracket - this is more than a little annoying.

    New York Daily News
    June 17, 2011

    There are several lessons to be learned in "The Art of Getting By," though all arrive too late to save this well-meaning but dreadfully executed movie.

    Seattle Times
    June 17, 2011

    Though Highmore and Roberts are appealing performers, Wiesen never gives us much reason to care about them.

    Philadelphia Weekly
    May 03, 2015

    Pathetic. Nothing but an over-privileged filmmaker mining his prep school diaries for narcissistic roleplay.

    We Got This Covered
    March 02, 2013

    Excellent performances by Freddie Highmore and Emma Roberts make this one an enjoyable watch.

    Tribune News Service

    Gets by. Barely.

    Movie Metropolis
    December 29, 2011

    An easygoing film that's not as quirky as it wants to be and does just enough to make you glad you watched.

    7M Pictures
    December 13, 2011

    This film tries to be a rallying cry for the disenfranchised youth of today. Not being a disenfranchised youth of today, it was mostly lost on me.

    Flick Filosopher
    September 13, 2011

    None of this first feature from writer-director Gavin Wiesen rings true, and most of it is preposterous and self-conscious.
