A huge hit at both the Toronto International Film Festival and LA's AFI Fest, Youth in Revolt is a coming-of-age comedy that puts a fresh and outrageous stamp on a tale of adolescent obsession and rebellion. Starring Michael Cera (also of the Oscar-winning film Juno and Superbad) and based on the acclaimed novel by C. D. Payne, Youth in Revolt is the story of Nick Twisp—a unique, but affable teen with a taste for the finer things in life like Sinatra and Fellini—who falls hopelessly in love with the beautiful, free-spirited Sheeni Saunders (Portia Doubleday) while on a family vacation. (2009, 90 min., Dir. Miguel Arteta)
