Here's the trailer to the comedy It's Kind of a Funny Story. The movie, based on the book of the same name, opens on September 24th.
This film was previously covered in the "We Can't Wait" series but now that there's more physical evidence, are we looking forward to seeing it?
Yes. Keir Gilchrist is an exceptional young actor (if The United States of Tara is any indication). And the film looks sweet and funny. It's directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck who've only made Sugar and Half Nelson but both films were received warmly by critics and the small audiences that sought them out. Can they expect there appreciative audience considerably this time?
No. The 'mental disorders are hilarious and crazy people help you grow!' movie trope can wear thin and false real fast. Does the movie have more emotional range than this trailer suggests?
Maybe So. But it does look funny, focused and specific. Specific is good.
Are you a "yes", "no", or "maybe so"?
