Buckling under intense academic pressure (maniacally driven parents, take note), a teenager checks into a mental health clinic. And yes, reportedly, it's kind of a funny story. <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PECLB0000007277" title="Keir Gilchrist" href="/topic/entertainment/keir-gilchrist-PECLB0000007277.topic">Keir Gilchrist</a>, <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PECLB0000006339" title="Emma Roberts" href="/topic/entertainment/emma-roberts-PECLB0000006339.topic">Emma Roberts</a>, Lauren Graham, <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PECLB0000008707" title="Zach Galifianakis" href="/topic/entertainment/architecture/zach-galifianakis-PECLB0000008707.topic">Zach Galifianakis</a> and <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PECLB0004501" title="Viola Davis" href="/topic/entertainment/movies/viola-davis-PECLB0004501.topic">Viola Davis</a> co-star.
