Based on the personal memoirs of Augusten Burroughs, Running With Scissors is a wickedly funny, brave and moving tale of surviving a most unusual childhood. Augusten's ,other (Annette Bening) is a deluded aspiring poet with bipolar disorder whose marriage to his dad (Alec Baldwin) is in ruins. Soon, she is seeing a very eccentric therapist named Dr. Finch (Brian Cox) while Augusten (Joseph Cross) is left in the care of Finch’s wacky family, including his tightly wound daughter (Gwyneth Paltrow). Abandoned by his parents and adopted by the Finches, he finds a kindred spirit in the youngest daughter Natalie (Evan Rachel Wood) and motherly support from Finch's long-suffering wife Agnes (Jill Clayburgh). Constantly recording the events of his life in his journal as a way to cope, Augusten finds himself avoiding school, learning about love from an older man (Joseph Fiennes), and making big decisions at the tender age of fifteen.
