Amy (Emma Roberts) is a college graduate with a dream to be an honored poet. She submits poems constantly trying to win a prize and become published, but it costs a lot. She’s been spending Dad’s money, and he’s turning off the tap cause it’s just not working out. Amy sets out to find a job on her own, but jobs were hard to come by. She finally settles on a job at Adult World, and adult bookstore and forces a meeting with her hero, Rat Billings, and starts out by stalking him as she tries to figure out if she has what it takes or not.

This is a cute little independent film that was a bit of a surprise. Emma Roberts has really grown as a star and is very good in this role of a lost college grad who is mostly a dreamer. John Cusack plays a real dick, who has long passed his prime and wants to be left alone, but had this bright eyed kid chasing him down, much to his dismay. There are some other minor characters in the story as well that are very well played. This is not a perfect film by any means, but it was fresh and new, and as I started by saying, one that really caught me by surprise. I didn’t expect much from this, but was pleasantly surprised at the depth of the story. It was an interesting story, and there were a number of interesting sub plots going on that helped keep the story flowing. The interactions and character development were very well done also, making the movie a pleasure to watch. Not much action, not much excitement, this is a slow paced character study with a lot of dialog, and thoughts and feelings. But it’s an interesting story and I’d recommend it as something out of the ordinary.
