What do you do when you're hit by a "quarter-life crisis"?

At first fancying himself an "enigmatic poet", twenty-something Art gradually realises that he must take action if he's going to escape his life as a struggling musician. The answer comes within the pages of a self-help book entitled "It's Not Your Fault". Not content to just draw inspiration from its pages, Art invites the elderly author of the book to live with him and his parents, sparking off a painfully funny journey into dysfunction but towards fulfilment.

Starring Robert Pattinson (Twilight, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) as neurotic musician Art, How To Be is a timely take on extended adolescence, frustrated creativity and the self-help phenomenon. This wry relationship comedy is directed by Oliver Irving from his own screenplay with contributions from Johnny White and Joe Hastings.

I recommend this to all Rob fans... He plans a very endearing character and he was funny in a "self pitying" and dry kind of way :) x

I was quite down in the dumps when i watched this film, (as it was said to be quite funny) So i put it on one night, and oh my god, i now feel great about my life, rob plays a great role, of some one who's life just can't seem to get any worse but does. A really good film for making you smile when you are down. Well acted.

i got this film because im a fan of rob, and wanted to see him out of the twilight or harry potter film. it's a intresing film and very funny at some points. i wouldn't say its the best film ever, because its a bit hard to follow and understand. you need to just not think in to much when watching it and then you will get it , lol.
