So Just What Is 'How To Be'?

How To Be Trailer from How To Be on Vimeo.

This is the trailer for How To Be, "the debut feature film by writer-director Oliver Irving, starring Robert Pattinson (Twilight, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire), Rebecca Pigeon (State and Main, The Heist, Red Belt) and Jeremy Hardy (Perrier Award winner)."

Here is a basic plot outline from the How To Be facebook group:

A comedy about Arthur (Robert Pattinson), a twenty something who moves back in with his parents, hits a quarter-life crisis and enlists the help of a self-help guru. A timely look at the increasingly common phenomena of grown-up children living at home, frustrated creativity and self-help.

This synopsis is from

Vocationless and without direction, twenty-something Art tries to make his way in the real world and develop his career as a misunderstood singer/songwriter. Unfortunately, he gets dumped by his girlfriend, moves back in with his parents and subsequently hits a quarter-life crisis. Art 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.
