D ETAILED S TORYLINE
As the end of senior year approaches, George (Freddie Highmore) has managed to make it almost all the way through high school without actually doing any work. Even in art class, the one subject that interests him, he doodles instead of completing the assignments. With graduation just months away, he spends most of his time alone, cutting class instead of planning for prom and looking at colleges. Then he impulsively takes the rap for one of the school's prettiest and most popular girls when she is caught smoking on the roof.

In return, Sally (Emma Roberts) sweeps him into her vivid world. She invites him to hip parties, accompanies him to galleries and museums, skips school with him and eventually becomes his best friend. Almost inevitably, the unsophisticated George finds himself falling for the flirtatious Sally, but can't find a way to tell her how he feels. When he thinks he has found a role model in school alumnus Dustin (Michael Angarano), an up-and-coming young painter he meets on his school's career day, George begins to envision life as an artist, with Sally as his muse.

Sally provides George with a refuge from both the mundaneness of school and the uncertainty of home, where things are not what they appear to be between his mother and stepfather. Then, with the end of senior year coming up fast, George gets an ultimatum from the principal (Blair Underwood): make up the school work he has failed to do all year in the next three weeks or he won't graduate. George soon sees how quickly the world comes apart when you have perfected the art of getting by.
