It's Kind of a Funny Story ~ And we still love it

Opened in 2011

Quote:
Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, the filmmaking team responsible for Half Nelson and Sugar, just announced who will be starring in their next movie: It's Kind of a Funny Story. With filming expected to begin in December in New York City on the Focus Features production, Boden and Fleck revealed United States of Tara's Keir Gilchrist has landed the lead role. The Hangover's Zach Galifianakis, Emma Roberts, Viola Davis, Zoe Kravitz, Aasif Mandvi, Lauren Graham and Jim Gaffigan have also been cast in the comedy-drama.

Based on the novel by Ned Vizzini, the story follows Craig (Gilchrist), a 16 year old who checks himself into a mental health clinic because he's too stressed out to deal with life. Although he's just a teen, he's placed in the adult ward because the youth section is closed. There he finds a mentor in Bobby (Galifianakis) and a love interest in Noelle (Roberts).

Focus CEO James Schamus calls and Boden and Fleck two of the finest independent filmmakers working today. "The compassion they always show towards the characters in their movies will be particularly in evidence in this humane comedy, especially as performed by these wonderful actors," stated Schamus.

Thanks for the thread, Val.

I wanted to comment but couldn't in the other thread anymore, since it was already closed

Because I was also very surprised to see it suggested/recommended to me on Netflix^^

I went to the red carpet of this at TIFF back when it premiered just in case Lauren showed up (she didn't).

But I did get to meet Emma Roberts.
