Story


In the tradition of Catcher in the Rye, and starring Michael Cera, "Youth in Revolt" is a coming-of-age comedy that puts a fresh and outrageous stamp on a tale of adolescent obsession and rebellion. Based on the acclaimed novel by C.D. Payne, "Youth in Revolt" is the story of Nick Twisp who falls hopelessly in love with the beautiful, free-spirited Sheeni Saunders (Portia Doubleday) while on a family vacation. But family, geography and jealous ex-lovers conspire to keep these two apart. With Sheeni's encouragement, Nick abandons his dull, predictable life and develops a rebellious alter ego: Francois. With his ascot, his moustache and his cigarette, Francois will stop at nothing to be with Sheeni, and leads Nick Twisp on a path of destruction with unpredictable and uproarious consequences. The film also Justin Long, Ray Liotta, Steve Buscemi, Jean Smart, Fred Willard and Zach Galifianakis.
