Affable Torontonian Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) falls head over heels for enigmatic American Ramona Flowers. But to win her love (and take control of his own life), he must first defeat her League of Seven Evil Exes. High-energy, jam-packed side-scrolling mayhem results, and the end result brings Bryan Lee O’Malley’s graphic novels to life with gusto to spare.
Screening in tandem with Edgar Wright’s electrifying portrait of THE SPARKS BROTHERS. See also: SHAUN OF THE DEAD.
“SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD was designed for the big screen and for the best sound systems.” —Edgar Wright “SCOTT PILGRIM understands the propriety of geek culture. And if you grew up within that spectrum, that inside knowledge only enhances the film’s in-joke reputation. The brilliant mixture of comic book and video game iconography has become a quintessential signature of Wright’s talents, crafting a unique visual statement that is so far unmatched.” —Kelechi Ehenulo, VultureHound “Edgar Wright's SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD adaptation cut its Adderall with pixie-stix...to gleeful, great success.” —David Zuckerman, Film Comment
