Youth In Revolt trailer online

The first trailer for Michael Cera's new comedy drama Youth In Revolt is now online and you can watch it below.

We've been waiting for Michael Cera to break from his comfort zone of nerdy, soft-spoken guy for a while now, and Youth In Revolt looks like the first step.

While the lead role he's playing - callow youth Nick Twisp who, while on holiday with his parents meets the girl of his dreams - doesn't seem like much of a break, what transpires later is much more fun.

See, the girl - Sheeni Saunders, played by Portia Doubleday -rejects him, so Nick cooks up an alternate personality, Francois Dillinger, who gives the lad the confidence to woo Sheeni.

Trouble is, Francois also encourages him to break the law, and soon Nick's in real trouble.

The film, based on CD Payne's novel, looks like it could be great, but check out the trailer and let us know your thoughts...
