Freddie Highmore is all grown up as a rebel without his homework

The Art Of Getting By (12a)

Verdict: Wallowing in a pool of Leonard Cohen songs

Rating:

Pals: Freddie Highmore and Emma Roberts

The talented little boy from Finding Neverland and Charlie And The Chocolate Factory has grown up.

Nineteen-year-old Freddie Highmore shows off a decent New York accent and a winning charm in this coming-of-age story about a high-school loner coming to terms with first love and a feeling that life is ultimately pointless, so hey, why get your homework in on time.

Yes, teenage rebellion has come to this. Forget Rebel Without a Cause or Catcher In The Rye.

This lad’s big act of anti-authoritarianism is that he can’t be bothered to hand in his trigonometry prep.

That may strike you as hardly the last word in gripping drama. True, a few other things are going wrong in his life.

The girl he fancies (Emma Roberts) treats him as a friend; his mother (Rita Wilson) is having financial difficulties but these are the problems of a lad with very little to complain about.

Writer-director Gavin Wiesen piles on the coming-of-age clichés, and it doesn’t help that his leading character has oddly middle-aged tastes.

Do teenagers still wallow in Leonard Cohen songs? Perhaps they do, but do they then deserve to have movies made about them?
