It’s Kind of a Funny Story (2010)


Comedy, Drama, Romance

It’s Kind of a Funny Story is comedy-drama film written and directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, an adaptation of Ned Vizzini’s 2006 novel of the same name. The film stars Keir Gilchrist, Zach Galifianakis, Emma Roberts, and Viola Davis.

In this New York City-set comedy-drama, 16-year-old Craig (Gilchrist), stressed out from the demands of being a teenager, 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 (Galifianakis), soon becomes both Craig’s mentor and protégé. Craig is also drawn to another 16-year-old, Noelle (Roberts). 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.
