The Art of Getting By Movie Review

Back in November a great movie was released to Blu-ray and DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment entitled The Art of Getting By.  I received a copy of this movie to review and was really excited to watch it!  It's about a high school student played by Freddie Highmore who has mastered "the art of getting by."  He shows up to school and does the bare minimum to get by.  He becomes friends with the popular girl in school who is curious why he never does any of his work.  This movie is a great romantic movie and reminds me of falling in love with my hubby in high school!

Summary: Get caught up in the story of an aspiring young artist and a “popular” girl who find themselves in a charming yet unconventional high school romance.  A Sundance Film Festival favorite, THE ART OF GETTING BY is a delightful coming-of-age film set against the backdrop of New York City. Experience the beauty and emotional depth of THE ART OF GETTING BY on Blu-ray and DVD November 29th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

George (Freddie Highmore, Golden Compass, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), a lonely and fatalistic teen who’s made it all the way to his senior year without ever having done a real day of work, is befriended by Sally (Emma Roberts, It’s Kind of a Funny Story, What’s Wrong with Virginia), a popular but complicated girl who recognizes in him a kindred spirit.

THE ART OF GETTING BY features stellar performances by an all-star supporting cast, including Michael Angarano (Almost Famous), Rita Wilson (Jingle All the Way), Sam Robards (American Beauty), Alicia Silverstone (Clueless), Elizabeth Reaser (Twilight: Breaking Dawn), and Blair Underwood (“Dirty Sexy Money”).
