The Art of Getting By

If you remember back during Sundance Film Festival this year, we shared our friend Andrew Levitas’ success of selling a film he produced to FoxSearchlight called “Homework”, the film has since been renamed “The Art of Getting By” and we were fortunate enough to attend the friends and family screening in Los Angeles last week right before Andrew headed east to New York for the official premiere hosted by Andrew Saffir’s Film Society and Stacey Bendet’s Alice + Olivia clothing line. Director/Writer Gavin Weisen, as well as cast members Emma Roberts, Freddie Highmore (yes the adorable kid from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Finding Neverland who Johnny Depp dies for), Elizabeth Reaser, Michael Angarano, Sasha Spielberg (yes that IS her dad), Rita Wilson, Blair Underwood and Alicia Silverstone.

Now the time has come, June 16th is the release of “The Art of Getting By” so check it out in theaters near you. The film has something for everyone, we have all gone to school at some point in our life and faced the dreadful assignment of homework, the teenage years of struggling to fit in and find out who you really are, and then of course love, puppy love, real love, lust and losing, well, maybe we ought to say gaining experiences.

Film Producer & Fine Artist Andrew Levitas

check out the trailer here to give you an idea of what you’re in store for and don’t forget to pay attention to Andrew Levitas’ artwork which is shown throughout much of the film as a character depicts an artists life and uses Andrew’s real life art as his own.
