Unless you're familiar with Daniel Clowes' adult comic books, you might think this black comedy is about the supernatural. It isn't. It's about those plain, often-unnoticed people who function out-of-the-mainstream. Thora Birch stars as Enid, a recent high-school grad who's decided to skip college, find a job and get an apartment with her best-friend, Rebecca. But when she discovers she has to take a summer remedial art course to get her diploma, Enid's plans get derailed. The chaos begins when the girls wickedly fake a response to a personals ad and lure a lonely loser named Seymour to a diner, thinking he's going to meet the girl of his dreams. Since he knows he can't relate to 99% of humanity, Seymour shows no outward indignation, sipping a vanilla milkshake, patiently waiting. Peering through horned-rimmed glasses, utterly intrigued, Enid stalks him. She discovers he's obsessed with collecting vintage 78 rpm records and, significantly, that they have a lot in common. At the same time, her single father decides to move his girl-friend in, her relationship with Rebecca deteriorates, her "racist" art class project turns into a local scandal, and she's deeply conflicted about her strange feelings for thirtysomething Seymour. This is an intriguing coming-of-age story and well worth a watch!
