Synopsis
YOUTH IN REVOLT is a coming-of-age comedy that puts a fresh and outrageous stamp on a tale of adolescent obsession and rebellion. Based on the acclaimed novel by C.D.

But family, geography and jealous ex-lovers conspire to keep these two apart. With Sheeni's encouragement, Nick abandons his dull, predictable life and develops a rebellious alter ego: Francois. With his ascot, his moustache and his cigarette, Francois will stop at nothing to be with Sheeni, and leads Nick Twisp on a path of destruction with unpredictable and uproarious consequences.

Teenage antihero Nick Twisp moves from the pages of the beloved novel YOUTH IN REVOLT to the screen with this film directed by Miguel Arteta (THE GOOD GIRL). Michael Cera (JUNO) stars as Nick, a teenager who may be wise beyond his years, but that doesn't stop him from getting in all sorts of trouble.;

New York Times
01/08/2010
"[S]weet...often charming....What counts is how Mr. Cera's face, much like that of a silent-screen actor, conveys sincerity and a sense of wonder..."
Los Angeles Times
01/08/2010
"Cera's casual-seeming skill and paradoxically reticent showmanship is routinely taken for granted."
USA Today
01/07/2010
"Nick is played with intellectual vigor and youthful angst by Michael Cera....It's a pleasant surprise to see the engaging, soft-spoken star of SUPERBAD and JUNO stretch and play a devil-may-care slimeball."
Chicago Sun-Times
01/06/2010
3 stars out of 4 -- "[It's Cera's] self-abasing modesty that makes the movie work."
Wall Street Journal
01/08/2010
"[A]n endearing coming-of-age comedy....[Mr. Cera's] inhibitions are translucent, rather than opaque; directly behind them, intelligence seethes and passion smolders."
Box Office
01/04/2010
3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his is a fun piece....Fred Willard's reliably great as an ultra-leftist neighbor and Justin Long stands out..."
Movieline
01/07/2010
"[T]he casting is a perfect fit: Cera's expertise in playing the moon-faced aspirant is largely derived from the bewilderment he seems to radiate at being caught out of his time..."
A.V. Club
01/07/2010
"[A] broad, ambitious, agreeably wordy satire in the vein of Terry Southern or A CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES." -- Grade: B-
Total Film
01/20/2009
3 stars out of 5 -- "Cera manages to bring the extra something that makes this an unexpectedly appealing movie for both genders."
Uncut
02/08/2010
4 stars out of 5 -- "Director Miguel Arteta punches the plot -- essentially, a series of increasingly absurd sketches -- along, and there's excellent, if brief, turns from Steve Buscemi, Ray Liotta, M Emmet Walsh and Fred Willard."
Empire
01/29/2010
4 stars out of 5 -- "Cera gives his most nuanced performance to date, casually slipping from trademark nervy cuteness into a rather delicious, new thin-lipped misanthropy."
Sight and Sound
03/01/2010
"[T]he material makes a good fit for the mordant gaze of director Miguel Arteta....Arteta stages some uproariously funny set pieces..."
