The Art of Getting By

Fatalistic teenager George Zingavoy is a master at just barely getting by. In fact, he's practically turned it into an art form - making it through the entire school year without doing a shred of work. But when George meets a beautiful and complicated girl named Sally, he discovers a kindred spirit who turns his slacker world upside-down. Their quirky and unexpected romance may just inspire George to do the unthinkable - get off his butt and chase after his dreams. This sweet coming-of-age comedy stars: Emma Roberts and Freddie Highmore.
