The new Fox Searchlight film, The Art of Getting By, will be released this Friday, June 17, 2011. Unlike Rotten Tomatoes (Yikes!), I thought it was cute. Sure, it wasn’t anything that we haven’t seen before and maybe it did ring of Nick & Norah, but it made me smile and I enjoyed it.
Plus, the music was pretty great. Here’s one that made it onto the soundtrack—from The Boxer Rebellion’s 2009 release, Union.
