Fresh out of college, quirky but naive Amy (Emma Roberts) is convinced she's going to be a famous poet . . . she just needs someone to acknowledge her greatness. But being unemployed and saddled with debt, her prospects for literary fame look grim. At the behest of her parents, she takes a job at a local adult bookstore, Adult World, where she juggles her newfound retail responsibilities with pursuing a mentorship under a reclusive, crusty and alcoholic poet (John Cusack).
But as Amy tries to make her voice heard among a social circle of eccentrics, including Adult World's adorable young manager Alex (Evan Peters) she discovers that a little humility may be just what she needs to achieve her success. Satirically funny and thoroughly if awkwardly sexy, Adult World is a unique comedy about the realities of growing up. The IFC Films theatrical release, directed by Scott Coffey, was an Official Selection at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival.
It's X-citedly funny.
