In Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s comedy It’s Kind of a Funny Story, 18-year-old Keir Gilchrist plays Craig, the movie’s hero. A teen who takes the troubles of the world upon himself, Craig finds a way back to his life through checking himself in to the adult ward of a local mental health center.  Gilchrist says, “I think anyone who was in high school can relate to Craig and the feelings he has; I definitely can.” To keep in character, Gilchrist explained that he “didn’t do research because I didn’t think Craig would have any idea of what it was like in such a place. I felt that was the appropriate way to go.”
