The Art of Getting By Reviews

  • Aug 31, 2020

    If you're looking for Oscars material, then move along. But if you're looking for a cute movie that makes you fondly remember the awkwardness of young first love, then this is the place for you. Freddie Highmore has certainly grown as an actor, as has Emma Roberts. Looking at Highmore's body of work, maybe the awkward, love-scared young man is his schtick. But I can't help, thinking back on my own younger days and root for George Zinavoy!

    I mostly enjoyed this because of the chemistry between Emma Roberts and Freddie Highmore. The plot hits a lot of the same notes that you've seen a million times.

    I liked the movie and its interesting cast. In The Art of Getting By, the performance of Freddie Highmore brings a quiet sensitivity to his role as a coming-of-age kid learning the ordeals of a first love (Emma Roberts) that will end his ignorant childhood bliss. The film uses its New York setting nicely.

    This is one of the better movies I have seen all year! Acting by leading characters was quite good. Story line was good.

    Damn, nobody liked the movie ... But me, yes. I like movies like that, well-meaning. Even when he himself does not solve all the reflection, but it is airy enough for the viewer to complete the empty spaces. A delicate work, well worked, dramaturgically competent, technically well resolved. Promises more than delivery, yet lets us take flights. That is enough. For those with super heroes Fred Flintstone and George Jetson, a story like this is enough.   Emma Roberts, as always, looks great and saves the character well. Freddie Highmore is kind of the same, but I like him a lot. So I am suspicious. But he's fine, yes. A typical teen drama, half intellectualized there, half modern with catchy dialogue. I don't know, you can have fun and it leaves a certain joy that the whole thing can really be worth it. Go there, give it a try ...

    Appropriate Title: "The Art of Setting up a Horrible Disaster" 'll save you sometime... This is a movie about a horrible young woman, and a stupid awkward young man who likes her. His infatuation almost wrecks his chances to graduate. He actually steps up his game and manages to graduate. Then he allows this woman back into his life after she emotionally manipulated him and vindictively seduced his mentor. They're not going to live happily ever. The end of the movie is just a setup for a horrible disaster.

    What those bad reviews are for ? This movie helped me with my life more than any other . The story is actually realistic and emotional , the acting was not bad at all and for those who are quiet and calm and they like to hear to people's problems will know the meaning of it . " We live alone , we die alone " , suffering from loneliness is quiet depressing and it could be serious . Maybe the dialoges wer'nt built right , but I find this a good thing to make it more realistic .
