Its Kind of a Funny Story by Ned VizziniAmbitious New York City teenager Craig Gilner is determined to succeed at life - which means getting into the right high school to get into the right job. But once Craig aces his way into Manhattans Executive Pre-Professional High School, the pressure becomes unbearable. He stops eating and sleeping until, one night, he nearly kills himself.
Craigs suicidal episode gets him checked into a mental hospital, where his new neighbors include a transsexual sex addict, a girl who has scarred her own face with scissors, and the self-elected President Armelio. There, Craig is finally able to confront the sources of his anxiety.
Ned Vizzini, who himself spent time in a psychiatric hospital, has created a remarkably moving tale about the sometimes unexpected road to happiness.

Ratings and Reviews
Result is easily their most commercial feature but in no way represents an artistic compromise, suggesting Focus could parlay warm reviews into kind of a decent specialty haul. But with the youth ward temporarily closed, Craig is forced to take up residence in the adult ward, run with calm, smiling efficiency by Dr. Eden Minerva Viola Davis , yet ruled by longtime patient Bobby Galifianakis , who takes Craig under wing so to speak during his short stay. Produced by Kevin Misher, Ben Browning. Running time: MIN.
It is one you have seen before in countless settings, and you will no doubt see it for as long as people are making movies. You might go in expecting something imaginative and wild because of the cast and the setting, but what you will get is an unoriginal, albeit decent, coming of age story. Based on the book of the same name by Ned Vizzini, Funny Story is a coming-of-age tale about a year old kid in Brooklyn named Craig played by Keir Gilchrist , who is beginning to crack under mountains of pressure. A student at an exclusive public school for gifted students, Craig is fairly gifted, but feels out of place, and the stress he is under has him considering suicide. Following a troubling dream where he kills himself, Craig heads to a local hospital and convinces the doctor that he needs help.
