The last film I watched was Youth In Revolt on Blu-ray, a class performance from Michael Cera who has perfected the 'awkward teen' character to a T. The films follows the quirky lead character Nick Twisp and his attempts one Summer, to win the girl he loves' heart by creating an alter ego with a too-cool-for-school attitude,'Francois Dillinger' who helps Nick to make some tricky choices. As expected, along the way he runs into all sorts of obstacles and trouble, including rough preppy, an encounter with drugs and a run in with the law. It all results in a very entertaining story, delivering some amazing one-liners as well as some, slightly unexpected twists.
The film's a bit rude, and that's possibly an understatement with both sex and drugs present (minus the rock & roll), but with it's 15 age rating, a little 'boundary-pushing' is expected. Cera delivers a great performance as both halves of his character's persona and he breaks out of his shell as a typical misunderstood teen stereotype to play the incredibly charismatic and funny 'Francois Dillinger'. The film is also made great by Portia Doubleday's performance as Cera's love interest and their chemistry really makes the film that whole bit better.
Excellent, funny and is the film to watch for some belting laughs.
