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.

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.
