Someone recommended that I watch Adult World (2013) a few days ago and on a lazy day, I gave it a try. It's described as a comedy but the description talks about a struggling poet (Emma Roberts) and her idol (John Cusack.)
From IMDB "Amy, a naive college graduate who believes she's destined to be a great poet, begrudgingly accepts a job at a sex shop while she pursues a mentorship with reclusive writer Rat Billings"
I was expecting a sad, coming of age film where a young poet finds herself but instead I got a dark comedy and a fun satire on how society perceives writers today.
Most of the film was very dimly lit, which got on my nerves, but besides that I don't have many complaints. Watch Adult World for a fairly amusing take on the creative process.
