"Youth in Revolt" is a coming-of-age comedy that puts a fresh and outrageous stamp on a tale of adolescent obsession and rebellion.
Nick Twisp – a unique, but affable teen with a taste for the finer things in life like Sinatra and Fellini – falls hopelessly in love with the beautiful, free-spirited Sheeni Saunders (Portia Doubleday) while on a family vacation. 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.
Based on the acclaimed novel by C.D. Payne.
