Probably the best thing I could say about this movie is that the actors all said their lines very well. I could say plenty of things that are not at all nice, but I shall not traipse in that direction. Points for the mom not falling into a domestic violence victim role and choosing instead to protect her son, but sadly, this one redeeming quality does not make any of this movie worth the watch.
Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home (Spring Break double feature!)
Interestingly, this movie is called “Homework” in all but the movie poster title. See how it says Homework_ver3? When I searched “The Art of Getting By” it gave me a movie titled “Homework.” Which was the same movie.
