The Art of Getting By - Review

KINDRED SPIRIT Freddie Highmore in The Art of Getting By

The Catcher in the Rye's disaffected, NYC-bred prep-school antihero Holden Caulfield would not go easy on this ?derivative indie drama in whichCharlie and the Chocolate Factory's Freddie Highmore takes the Holden part and Scream 4's Emma Roberts pretend-acts the as if role of the cool girl who befriends him. Old Holden would call the whole movie phony, and I agree, if you want to know the truth. A mysteriously glossy supporting cast including Rita Wilson and Blair Underwood play similarly one-?dimensional characters. The real New York City looks pretty, though. D+
