Two thumbs up Jesus. I'm impressed with the way you summarized the main plot in detail and yet I still want to go and see this movie. Personally I feel like this film would seem as a contradiction of itself, seeing how the vital issue is that main character, Craig, is suffering from depression because of his neglecting parents and overall peer pressure. As the story unfolds, Craig meets Noelle and he finds himself falling in love with her within a five day psychiatric evaluation. Nonetheless, despite the storyline of this film, it seems like teenagers all over the United States have something they can relate to. Just like Craig and Noelle, someone in your life can help change your outlook on how the world functions. I feel like that the overall theme of "It's Kind of a Funny Story" does not nearly scratch the surface of an ongoing issue that teenagers have to go through each day. What I'd also like to compliment on is how you connected the film and raised awareness by giving an example of teenage depression and suicidal thoughts in everyday life. A lot of teenagers don't understand how much words can emotionally and physically damage one single person.
