Story


In this New York City-set comedy-drama, 16-year-old Craig (Keir Gilchrist of "United States of Tara"), stressed out from the demands of being a teenager, checks himself into a mental health clinic. There he learns that the youth ward is closed - and finds himself stuck in the adult ward. One of the patients, Bobby (Zach Galifianakis of "The Hangover"), soon becomes both Craig's mentor and protege. Craig is also drawn to another 16-year-old, Noelle (Emma Roberts of "Valentine's Day"). With a minimum five days' stay imposed on him, Craig is sustained by friendships on both the inside and the outside as he learns more about life, love, and the pressures of growing up.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..there's humor in Galifianakis' performance but also a good deal of pain and fear..”
by Robert W. Butler [Kansas City Star]
“..a humanistic comedy that walks a tightrope of emotions and moods and manages to stay balanced..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..this is the kind of amiable, humane, small-scale movie that almost never gets made anymore..”
by John Hartl [Seattle Times]
