Freddie Highmore in the Official Trailer for 'The Art Of Getting By'
"Find something you've never had the courage to say before…" Fox Searchlight has debuted a trailer for The Art of Getting By, an indie formerly titled Homework, starring Freddie Highmore as a slacker and Emma Roberts, with Michael Angarano. I saw this charming coming-of-age flick at Sundance, with an all-grown-up (or at least high school age) Freddie Highmore, the kid from Finding Neverland, remember him? It was just okay, but since this is Searchlight, the trailer sells it really well, even I want to see it again. The embed is from MTV so, unfortunately, there's a mandatory ad - sorry. Otherwise, enjoy, it's pretty good!
Watch the first official trailer for Gavin Wiesen's The Art Of Getting By via MTV:
George, a lonely, fatalistic teen who's made it all the way to his senior year without ever having done a day of work, is befriended by Sally, a popular but complicated girl who recognizes in him a kindred spirit.
The Art Of Getting By, formerly known as Homework, was both written and directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Gavin Wiesen, who's making his feature debut after a short film in 2008 called Kill the Day. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, where it was picked up by Fox Searchlight. The indie studio will be releasing The Art Of Getting By in limited theaters starting on June 17th this summer.
