I have finally found a kindred spirit in a movie character. Thora Birch's character, Enid, in Ghost World is me. We're both cynical, kooky and somewhat Jewish. I'm less monotone and can't draw, but Enid has gained solid ground in my good books. The way she dresses is ridiculously fabulous. Her barettes, random tee-shirts and combat boots reminisce the spirit of hipster-dom before it was eclipsed by the mainstream. More people probably resemble her now than when the movie came out, but I still think that her "out there" style is highly underappreciated. The movie itself is an amusing piece of work, and I highly recommend you watch it if you agree with any of the opinions expressed in this blog.
