I'm looking for a movie where

  • the main protagonist is a high-school boy from a rich family.
  • I think he transfers from private to a public school at the start of the movie and is not well liked because he stills wears his private school uniform.
  • He has regular appointments with a shrink.
  • But instead of discussing his problems he imitates the problems of his peers in school and even get drugs for these problems.
  • In school then he holds counselling sessions from the bathroom and gives out those drugs.

  • This sounds just like Infinite Jest, if you think it could have been from a book instead of a movie. But I don't know how you could possibly forget that. – bob Dec 7 '17 at 0:56

This sounds like Charlie Bartlett.

Let's look at the trailer...

  • High school boy - Check
  • Rich - Check
  • Private to Public school - Check
  • Wears uniform and not well liked - Check
  • Psychiatrist - Check
  • Giving counsel/drugs to fellow student in bathroom - Check

I don't what else it could be!

    A similar trope was utilized to comical effect in a much earlier "Rock 'n' Roll High School" from 1979. – oakad Dec 7 '17 at 2:15
