Charlie Bartlett is a movie about Charlie Bartlett (Anton Yelchin), a rich high schooler who, in the beginning of the movie, gets kicked out of a boarding school for making fake driver licenses for his fellow students. His mom then asks him to try public school. At first, Charlie gets made fun of for wearing suits to school, but everything changes when he comes up with a brilliant plan. He partners with the school’s troublemaker and becomes the school’s “psychiatrist.” His uncle is a psychiatrist, so he is able to get prescriptions that way. Charlie starts charging for visits in the boys’ bathroom, and his popularity rises. But things get complicated when he starts abusing his power as the psychiatrist.
