It's Kind of a Funny Story
It's Kind of a Funny Story review
Craig Gilner (Keir Gilchrist) admits himself to a hospital. He meets Bobby (Zach Galifianakis) and adores a girl named Noelle (Emma Roberts). Premise reminded me of Girl Interrupted and One Few Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Screenplay was extraordinary with lines from Dr. Eden Minerva – “Lord, grant me the strength to accept the things I cannot change; Courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.” Craig – “I’ll take my chances.” “Breath…live.” Soundtrack upbeat, direction was fantastic (shades of Wes Anderson) and acting sincere in which the cast shows potential. It’s Kind of a Funny Story has all the elements growing-up, guidance, and basically enjoying life. This reviewer was surprised how good this was despite its idea being emulated from a myriad of movies.
