I always thought death would be different. I expected a great wave of realization to sweep over me - suddenly the meaning of life would be answered along with every other question I ever had - but there was nothing to realize. I was dead.

I had never heard of this movie, but I caught it as it was starting on TV last night, and in the absence of anything else good to watch I decided to give it a go, at the end of the movie.... In fact, long after the end of the movie I was still thinking about it.
Plot In A Paragraph: A high school boy desperate to escape his hometown and move to New York, attend the college of his dreams and do something other than live in the foot steps of his drunken, divorced mother. He recounts how he blackmailed his fellow students into contributing to his literary magazine and discovers what its like to feel accomplished.
I really liked this movie, Chris Colfer is outstanding as Carson, and Allison Janney is brilliant as his mother. Dermot Mulroney offers steady support and Sarah Hyland is a lot of fun as the stuck up cheerleader, whilst Rebel Wilson is her usual reliable self as Malerie.
