"Charlie Bartlett"

Movie with Anton Yelchin, Hope Davis, and Robert Downey Jr.  Anton plays wealthy teenager Charlie Bartlett who has been expelled from private schools and, as a last resort, is sent to public school.  Robert Downey Jr plays Principal Gardner of the public school.  Hope Davis is Charlie's mother.
Somehow Charlie's honesty and well meaning intentions set him as the school "psychiatrist" providing advice to students.  Dark comedy of teenage angst but with a different angle.  Did not expect much but enjoyed the movie.  Safe first date movie.-JM
