Youth in Revolt is an American film adaptation of C.D. Payne's epistolary novel of the same name starring Michael Cera.



Nick Twisp (Michael Cera) is a 16-year-old who is an outcast of his generation. He meets Sheeni Saunders (Portia Doubleday), an intellectual and beautiful girl. The only thing really standing in his way is Sheeni's poetry-writing ex-boyfriend Trent (Jonathan B. Wright), Nick's temperamental divorced parents (Steve Buscemi and Jean Smart), and Nick's mom's boyfriends (Zach Galifianakis and Ray Liotta). When Nick realizes she is not interested, he comes up with an alter-ego, named François Dillinger, who resembles Nick, but has blue eyes, a mustache, a deeper voice, and a player/bad boy attitude to help him with his pursuit of Sheeni. But when François makes Nick a wanted criminal, everything spins out of control.



Reception for the film has so far been generally positive. The film currently holds an 70% "Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 138 reviews.[3]
