Fatalistic teenager George Zingavoy (Freddie Highmore) is a master at just barely getting by. In fact, he’s practically turned it into an art form—making it through the entire school year without doing a shred of work. But when George meets a beautiful and complicated girl named Sally (Emma Roberts), he discovers a kindred spirit who turns his slacker world upside down. Their quirky and unexpected romance may just inspire George to do the unthinkable—get off his butt and chase after his dreams.

You wouldn't surf past "Say Anything" to find it, but "Art" is a decent-enough entry in an overcrowded genre.

Claudia Puig USA Today | June 16, 2011

Though it doesn't fully resonate as a romance, it is effective as a character study.

Amy Biancolli Houston Chronicle | June 16, 2011

Even slumped over Camus, Highmore's a charmer -- and he carries the movie well on his slim shoulders.

Ben Sachs Chicago Reader | June 16, 2011

For all his reliance on teen-movie formula, writer-director Gavin Wiesen is surprisingly adept at depicting messy emotions and capturing the spontaneity of adolescence.

Rex Reed New York Observer | June 15, 2011

Unlike most recent coming-of-age movies, this one gets by on more than capricious eccentricity and sentimentality. It has something called heart.
