Ghost World (16-Jun-2001)

Director: Terry Zwigoff

Writers: Daniel Clowes; Terry Zwigoff

From comic book by: Daniel Clowes

Music by: David Kitay

Producers: Lianne Halfon; John Malkovich; Russell Smith

Keywords: Dark Comedy, Comic Book

Film adaptation of the Daniel Clowes comic book of the same name tells the coming-of-age tale of two young friends struggling with their identities.

Enid and Becky are two friends and recent high-school graduates, each trying to find their way in the world as misfits looking on towards an uncertain future in a society that just doesn't seem to "get" people like them. Ghost World follows the hipster-y Enid and somewhat more conventionally attractive Becky as they respond to a newspaper ad looking for a date placed by lonely vinyl record collector Seymour, ultimately finding a kindred spirit in an unexpected place as they continue moving through their world with a cynical, jaded eye to goings-on around them.
