How to Make a Michael Cera Movie


Ah, Michael Cera — the one who has put awkwardness, striped sweaters, and virginity back on the map. Some of you may find his banter charming, while others have accused him of playing the same roles (over and over again) in different hoodies. Fair enough. But in Cera’s latest flick, Youth in Revolt, we get to see him in more than just his awkward glory as he takes on the characters of Nick and his alter-ego, Francoise. A French accent and pervy-looking mustache seem to be the tools necessary to win the girl (Portia Doubleday) and thus, lose the virginity. Like Year One, it’s a departure from the typical Cera fare. Unlike Year One, it’s actually good.
