George (Freddie Highmore), a lonely teen tormented about the big questions of life, who's made all the way to his senior year without ever having done a real day of work, is befriended by Sally (Emma Roberts), a beautiful and complicated girl who recognizes in him a kindred spirit.
The Art of Getting By is a good film with a good story far from guaranteed. After meeting Sally, George slowly becomes a different person, but things between them don't goes as the viewer may imagine. The situation is more complicated and more real than usually - in movies.
The excellent performances by Freddie Highmore and Emma Roberts themselves make this worth your time.
