How To Be 2008

How to Be is an award-winning independent comedy/drama feature film written and directed by Oliver Irving. It is about a young man named Art, played by Robert Pattinson, who is going through a “quarter life crisis”. Robert Pattinson, who is best known for his role as Edward Cullen in the Twilight series, and as Cedric Diggory in the Harry Potter series, received the ‘Best Actor in a Feature’ award for his portrayal of Art, at the Strasbourg Film Festival, in Strasbourg, France, in September 2008.

Plot: After a number of personal setbacks, including a struggling singer/song-writing career and a girlfriend who’s dumped him, Art (Robert Pattinson) moves back home with his cold and neglectful parents (played by Rebecca Pidgeon and Michael Irving). Art decides to use inheritance money to pay for Canadian therapist, Dr. Levi Ellington (Powell Jones) to come to his home in England and help Art “be more normal,” about which his parents are less than thrilled. Despite his unsupportive parents, Art attempts with his new life coach and two slightly unbalanced friends Nikki (Mike Pearce) and Ronnie (Johnny White) to find a balance in his life and experience true happiness and a good relationship with his parents. The film also stars Jeremy Hardy as Art’s boss at the care centre at which he volunteers.
