Teenagers ponder life in Youth in Revolt.

Oh gosh, not another teenage flick! My first thoughts exactly. But not to worry, Youth in Revolt is not just another High School Musical. Based on C.D. Payne’s series of books that have gained a cult status, this film gives a sympathetic and entertaining depiction of the disenchanted life of Nick Twisp – played by the ever-so-endearing Michael Cera (known from Juno). Nick is the antihero of his own life in which nothing exiting happens. But when he meets the girl of his dreams he decides to jump into action. The geeky youth creates himself an alter-ego, François Dillinger, to help him with his pursuit - and this is when things start to get interesting.
