Ghost World

I recently had the pleasure of seeing Ghost World. This movie derived from a graphic novel of the same name tells of the changes two girls go through as they try to learn their place in the world following high school graduation.

The girls’ friendship is tested as they each find different ways of coping with a world that they are forced to endure. As outsiders by nature, the transition into adulthood is not easy, but the storyline and the interpersonal dynamics they go through feel very realistic and authentic.

There is also a very interesting storyline involving one of the girls developing a friendship with a man who as an old record collector has created his own life as an outsider and seeks to express both the upside and the downside of such a life.

This movie has received a great deal of praise, and I thought that it lived up to my heightened expectations. On my scale of 1-100, I rate it an 87.
