It's Kind Of A Funny Story As The Film

Checking in from the Toronto Film Festival, The Washington Posts Ann Hornaday appraises Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s comedy It’s Kind of a Funny Story as a “little gem” that “could be the small movie to see this fall.” Her reasons why? “Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck have exemplified a generation of young filmmakers whose spontaneous sense of narrative, intimate filming, and humanistic compassion have reinvigorated American movies.” Yet––and with all due respect to Ms. Hornaday’s kind sentiments––we hope that a cast like Zach Galifianakis, Emma Roberts, Keir Gilchrist, Lauren Graham, Viola Davis, Zoë Kravitz, and Aasif Mandvi will make it more than just a “little” gem.
