It’s Kind of a Funny Story (PG-13)


This is a safe adaptation of Ned Vizzini’s semi-autobiographical novel with genuinely moving moments. Keir Gilchrist plays a suicidal high schooler who commits himself into a psyche war. This may not be the most dynamic movie you’ll ever see, but it does gently present mentally troubled young characters working through personal dilemmas under professional supervision. It’s teen-psychology-super-drama-lite.
