Being a teen can be crazy stressful, which is why Craig, the 16-year-old main character in the upcoming film It's Kind of a Funny Story', makes an interesting move to check himself into a mental health clinic (yeah, we hadn't heard of the film before either, but it looks cool, right?). Of course, plenty of drama ensues.
Set in New York City, the burnt-out student, played by Keir Gilchrist, soon finds out that the youth ward of his clinic is closed and is forced to hang out in the adult ward. He then meets Bobby, played by funny man Zach Galifianakis, another patient who ends up mentoring Craig in an unconventional way.
Enter Emma Roberts' character, Noelle, a 16-year-old patient who captures Craig's eye. With a minimum five-day stay imposed, the two get to know each other by exploring what life, love and growing up is all about.
We love watching Emma in this dry comedic role, and think the jokes are hilarious in their own subtle way. Watch the trailer for the movie below. 'It's Kind of a Funny Story' opens in theaters on Friday, October 8. Have you ever felt as stressed out as Craig?
