"The Art of Getting By," a drama about a Manhattan high school misfit, is the first feature written and directed by Gavin Wiesen, and I’m betting it’s pretty personal. Ironically, that’s probably why it feels so generic, as if made from the common denominator of a million teenage journals. To paraphrase Tolstoy (or, really, to mash up Tolstoy with J.D. Salinger), all unhappy adolescences are alike — or at least they look that way when condensed into 90-odd minutes of privileged self-pity.
