Ghost World

Opens Friday, July 22, 2022

Enid and Rebecca are out of sync with the world around them. Their uncensored commentary spares no one as they try to find a place for themselves in a modem America of endless strip malls and fast-food chains. After graduating from high school, they face an unpleasant immediate future: crappy jobs and slim prospects for romance. While Rebecca gets a job at the local coffee franchise and starts saving for the apartment they always planned on, Enid becomes involved with an alienated malcontent named Seymour. As they edge toward the unfathomable mystery of adulthood in a world in decline, Enid and Rebecca struggle to maintain their identity and the bonds that keep them sane.
