One of my all time favourite movies since the first time I watched it has been Ghost World. It’s a fabulous film staring Thora Birch and Scarlett Johansson with Steve Busccemi. The screen play was by the author of the graphic novel Daniel Clowes. Ever since I watched it I’ve wanted to read the graphic novel and didn’t get the chance until this year when I found a copy in The Book Vault.
Once I finally got my hands on this amazing work of art I was in love and I am currently on the hunt for more of Clowes’ work. The humor is bitting in both the film and novel version of Ghost World. If you haven’t had the chance to read or watch Ghost World you are really missing out on something great.
I don’t know of any other film that has captured a novel as well as Ghost World, and I know much of that has to do with the fact that Daniel Clowes did the writing for both. The only other film that has been able to capture the essence of a film as well as this one is Juno.
I’d be interested to hear from those of you that have experienced the book and or film version of Ghost World. Did you enjoy your experience or not?
