    • Synopsis
    • “How To Be” (www.howtobemovie.com): is a wry coming-of-age comedy about twenty-something ARTHUR. Vocationless and without direction, he tries to make his way in the ‘real world’ and develop his career as a misunderstood singer/songwriter. But he gets dumped by his girlfriend, has to move back in with his parents and subsequently hits a quarter-life crisis. Searching to escape the general ‘greyness’ he feels, Arthur uses inheritance money to indulge in retail and new age therapies only to end up enlisting the help of an eccentric self-help guru, DR. ELLINGTON. Arthur's painfully funny journey to define his existence brings to the fore the dysfunctional relationship he has with his parents and the importance in his life of his odd-ball friends. How To Be is a timely look at increasingly common phenomena: grown-up children living at home, frustrated creativity and self-help.
