Oh, the travails of being young and good-looking in New York City. We never knew it could be so hard.

MTV has dropped the trailer for "The Art of Getting By" (previously known as "Homework") and it's about as indie as you can get. Starring Emma Roberts and Freddie Highmore, the film is about George, a young self-described slacker who in his senior year of high school takes up with the equally aloof Sally and together they get their malaise on while going...clubbing? Or something. Naturally, their relationship gets complicated and....sigh, we're pretty sure we've seen this movie about a hundred times before. There are some bright spots though, particularly Michael Angarano, who seems to be playing a mentor-type character with rugged, bearded authority.

"The Art of Getting By" opens in limited release on June 17th before going wide in July. Check out the trailer below.
