Accentuate the negative.
Deliciously dry and quirky, director Terry Zwigoff's Ghost World, based on the cult comic book by Daniel Clowes, is like no other teen comedy you've ever seen before. Original, terrifically funny, sharp and bitchy, Ghost World follows Enid (Thora Birch) and Rebecca (Scarlett Johansson), two teenage girls who have always been too cool to bother with the losers in their High School.
Embarrassing the local "freaks" and laughing at all around, their friendship is founded on the mutual conviction that everything sucks! But when a practical joke on a malcontent named Seymour (Steve Buscemi) backfires, their lives start to turn upside down and Enid and Rebecca struggle to maintain their friendship. Ultra-cool, ultra-funny whilst still being warm and touching, this is a film that's refreshingly different and a total blast.
