    NORMAN the movie @ Museum of Fine Arts Boston

    Norman by Jonathan Segal (2010, 97 min.). Norman Long is a high school loner, a self-aware and darkly funny teen who’s just trying to handle his daily existence. In the wake of his mother’s sudden death, Norman must now also deal with the reality that his father is starting to lose his battle with stomach cancer. Norman, depressed and angry, unintentionally gets caught in a lie that he, too, has stomach cancer. Soon his complete distortion of the facts spirals out of control as Norman begins to imitate his father’s debilitating physical symptoms, ultimately affecting his life and the world around him. Norman’s friend, Emily, gets caught up in his fabrication and struggles with her deep-rooted romantic feelings in the face of his “impending” death. Norman must confront a burning set of conflicting emotions as he struggles to define his relationship with his father, his love for Emily, and who he will be as a young man.
