Adventureland

I went to a screening of Greg Mottola's new film Adventureland this week and I can honestly say that it belongs in the canon of classic coming-of-age movies. Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart are each so real and perfectly suited for their roles. But one of the major highlights is the most affecting film performance thus far from Martin Starr. It's as if his high school geek from Freaks and Geeks had grown up and still can't quite find his place among the people around him. Here's the clip of Starr's character showing off his exemplary video game skills.
