We had just got hold of some images from this film called Its Kind of a Funny Story. It gave a lot of good vibes now the trailer also plays to our fancy. Zach has been channeling the mad man quite well. He will be giving the tour for the young actor Keir Gilchrist as a stressed out teenager.

Keir’s character gets himself checked into a mental institution for five days. The institution has the hallmarks of all the cool things cinema seduces us with. A hot chick, interesting characters and a teenage protagonist who will bring the audiences to the theater: so what is really missing in this? There has to be something amiss here. It is directed by the duo that brought the heartwarming Half Nelson and the recent indie hit Sugar.

This is the new film by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck and it stars a slew of great talent. It has Keir starring alongside Zach Galifianakis, Emma Roberts, Lauren Graham, Viola Davis and Jim Gaffigan. The film will be coming out in limited release on September 24 th.

Here is an official synopsis.

Stressed out from the demands of being a teenager, 16-year-old Craig checks himself into a mental health clinic. There he learns that the youth ward is closed and finds himself stuck in the adult ward. One of the patients, Bobby, soon becomes both Craig’s mentor and protege. Craig is also drawn to another 16-year-old, Noelle. With a minimum five days’ stay imposed on him, Craig is sustained by friendships on both the inside and the outside as he learns more about life, love, and the pressures of growing up.
