This film is now most certainly on my radar, the trailer is great, the film looks like a charming indie comedy/drama. It’s Kind of a Funny Story is the return of Half Nelson writer/directors Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck and stars Zack Galifianakis, Emma Roberts, Lauren Graham, Adrian Martinez, Zoë Kravitz, Viola Davis, Jeremy Davies and Jim Gaffigan. The film is based on the novel by Ned Vizzini, which is apparently amazing……so says my cousin!

Stressed out from the demands of being a teenager, 16-year-old Craig checks himself into a mental health clinic. There he learns that the youth ward is closed and finds himself stuck in the adult ward. One of the patients, Bobby, soon becomes both Craig’s mentor and protege. Craig is also drawn to another 16-year-old, Noelle. With a minimum five days’ stay imposed on him, Craig is sustained by friendships on both the inside and the outside as he learns more about life, love, and the pressures of growing up.
