Presented by Thought Bubble Comic Art Festival and Scalarma, Ghost World is a black comedy focusing on the lives of Enid (Thora Birch) and Rebecca (Scarlett Johansson in her first comic book film role), two bored teens who are wondering what to do with their lives post high-school.

One day they meet older man Seymour (Steve Buscemi) who develops a curious friendship with Enid, causing a rift between the girls.

The film has a wonderful soundtrack, inspired by Seymour's love of trawling garage sales in search of vintage 78s.
