Ghost World (US, 2001)

Thora Hird rightly received the plaudits for this; Scarlett Johansson is now the star. Excellent adaptation of the comic satire; sensibly extending its episodic nature with the Steve Buscemi character. Interesting that the US has a thriving counter culture (or is that phrase too ’60s?); a reaction against the suffocating mainstream? (DVD, 2) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0162346/
