Ghost World

another movie about teenage angst

solid movie about 2 best friends who graduate high school and learn to grow up. thora birch is good as enid, a girl who knows what she doesn't like or want, but can't figure out what she DOES want out of life. her friend rebecca, played by scarlett johansson, does know what she wants and is going after it. the 2 are outsiders and don't fit in anywhere. they start to stalk steve buscemi and try to humiliate him... thora eventually likes him and they become good friends. the movie is funny and sad at the same time, which is good. i like the material, the style, and the performances.
