Embrace the sardonic nihilism of Terry Zwigoff’s brilliant adaptation of Daniel Clowes’ graphic novel. Creative iconoclast Enid just graduated High School – save one summer school art class — and she can’t quite seem to find her place in adulthood. Drifting through her late adolescence with her disaffected best friend, she scoffs her way through part-time jobs, pestering the local gas station attendant, dancing to bootleg VHS tapes, and befriending a middle-aged record-collecting loner. Darkly hilarious down to its extras casting, Ghost World is the perfect teen movie for every weirdo who never sat with the popular crowd.
