Teen Movie Night: "It's Kind of a Funny Story"
Thu., 3/19/15, 6:00pm – 8:00pm @ MCPL Wausau
Teens (grades 6-12) are invited to a free movie on the library's third floor! This month's movie is based on the book "It's Kind of a Funny Story" by Ned Vizzini.
Ambitious 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 college to get the right job. But once Craig aces his way into Manhattan's Executive Pre-Professional High School, the pressure becomes unbearable. He stops eating and sleeping until, one night, he nearly kills himself. Craig's suicidal episode gets him checked into a mental hospital. There, Craig is finally able to confront the sources of his anxiety.
Teen Movie Night recurs monthly and features movies based on young adult books.
