Story


Vibrators and confessional poetry collide in this sexy comedy about an aspiring writer cum sex toy shop clerk and her crusty literary idol (John Cusack). Amy (Emma Roberts) is a naive, awkward aspiring poet in a post-grad existence that is going nowhere. Living with her parents in a bland upstate New York town, certain of her yet-to-be-acknowledged literary greatness and desperate for income, she begrudgingly accepts a job at Adult World, the local sex shop owned by a frisky elderly couple (including a wonderful Cloris Leachman) and staffed by diva transvestite Rubio and adorable local boy Alex. Amy balances her work amongst the pornography and sex toys by fiercely pursuing a surefire kick start for her success: a mentorship with reclusive, crusty and alcoholic writer Rat Billings, played by a bitterly funny John Cusack.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..set in a wintry Syracuse, "Adult World" proceeds by fits and starts..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
“..the story beats are as familiar as they come, and there are a few halfhearted stabs at redeeming Roberts's clueless character..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]
“..as an ode to anything important, "Adult World" is not a thing of beauty..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
