Jesse Eisenberg, Ryan Reynolds, Kristen Stewart, Martin Starr, Margarita Levieva, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Paige Howard, Wendie Malick / Fiction / English
A hilarious 80s-set coming-of-age comedy, from the director of Superbad.
High school graduate James (Jesse Eisenberg) takes a job in a local amusement park run by an array of likeable misfits. Through these people, he learns lessons in love and life, as he begins to find his way in the world. Excellent performances, not least from Kristen Stewart (Twilight) and Ryan Reynolds (Wolverine), and a poignant script sparkling with intelligence underpin this rollercoaster of charm.
