'Slacker in the Rye' is how the New York Observer described cynical, Holden Caulfield-esque teen George (Freddie Highmore) in this coming-of-age drama. George has made the most of doing nothing; his intelligence is recognized, but things like homework seem pointless to him...until he meets a girl. Emma Roberts co-stars the sexy rebel who introduces George to the wild side.
