Ghost World (2001)

Two quirky, cynical teenaged girls try to figure out what to do with their lives after high school graduation. After they play a prank on an eccentric, middle aged record collector, one of them befriends him, which causes a rift in the girls' friendship.


The entire cast is great in this film, but I love Thora Birch and Steve Buscemi especially. They have this awesome quirky chemistry that really clicks.

Of a brand of comedy I would call "pathetic", which is not to say it isn't funny, just that you laugh at the characters' patheticness. Excellent examination of suburban dullness and what people do to get out of it. At times surreal, it rewards the patient viewer.
