DVD Verdict
30 December 2011
  • Excerpt: George (Freddie Highmore, Toast ) and Sally (Emma Roberts, Scream 4 ) are seniors in high school. He's a slacker who has done nothing the entire year and yet still remains an enrolled student. (Don't bother asking why, it's never explained.) She's a popular girl who notices George when he gets her out of trouble. Sally takes him under her wing and introduces him to her life as a rich, spoiled partier.

Film review: 'The Art of Getting By'

Las Vegas Weekly
15 June 2011
  • Excerpt: No matter how many times Sally (Emma Roberts) tells George (Freddie Highmore) that he’s “so weird,” that doesn’t make The Art of Getting By any less generic, or its characters any less one-dimensional. The feature debut of writer-director Gavin Wiesen is a by-the-book “quirky” indie romance, with a pair of superficially rebellious (but intelligent and hyper-articulate) teens falling in love to a soundtrack of plaintive indie rock.

The art of getting by

tros kompas
22 September 2011
  • Excerpt: ‘Coming-of-age’-drama dat in potentie aardig is, maar helaas te kampen heeft met een nogal zwak scenario en een cast die niet altijd de juiste snaar weet te raken. Het verhaal draait om de enigszins depressieve, eenzame knaap George (Freddie Highmore), wiens leven kleur lijkt te krijgen als hij verliefd wordt op een sprankelende deerne (Emma Roberts).
