Charlie Bartlett

High school hijinks as perpetually expelled private schoolboy, Charlie Bartlett, tries his luck in public school. At first he seems an easy target for bullies, but it's not long before the entrepeneurial Charlie spots a gap in the market. His fellow students are psychologically imbalanced, and Charlie is just the guy to solve their problems. Setting up a makeshift shrink's office in the boys' toilet, he begins doling out advice, along with his own prescribed pep pills, to the student body. Anton Yelchin ('Star Trek') is the titular hero; Robert Downey Jr co-stars as the principal who should be cool, but is in fact an alcoholic; and Hope Davis is Charlie's put-upon mum.
