ADVENTURELAND WILL SURPRISE YOU
Just because “Adventureland” is about a group of recent college graduates floundering in the outside world, doesn’t mean it’s aimed simply at that age group. It’s a post-teen movie that’s just as appealing for adults – maybe even more so. We remember what it was like in 1987 – before cell phones and computers. Jesse Eisenberg (“The Squid and the Whale”) plays a smart but awkward nerd, forced to take a summer job at the local amusement park, and Kristen Stewart (“Twilight”) plays the object of his affection. They’re both terrific and his exasperating and fabulous summer is an original and authentic experience.
