Ghost World

In recent years, Ghost World has become a cult film thanks to the fantastic plot and the small mass of admirers who spreaded the word about this fantastic movie.

What I like most about it, is the cynicism and irony imprinted in Thora Birtch's character. Far more realistic than the typical teen movie.

From imdb: "Enid (Thora Birch) and Rebecca (Scarlett Johansson) are best friends having difficulties with the social attitudes of other people. After graduating high school, they decide to get a job and rent a house of their own. However, Enid needs to attend Arts summer school to graduate but her anti-social behavior makes her lose her job.


Meanwhile, Enid and Rebecca play a prank on Seymour (Steve Buscemi), a middle-aged collector of vinyl records that also has difficulties with relationships. Seymour and Enid eventually become friends. As time goes by, Enid reaches maturity and develops a different view of life."

I'm doing my uni dissitation on iconic fashion. Does anyone believe this film, Ghost town inspired a youth culture of Geek/ART kids which lead to this film becoming iconic? any comments would be great x
