IFC Acquires Scott Coffey’s Tribeca Pic ‘Adult World’

By | Thursday May 9, 2013 @ 5:18pm PDT

NEW YORK, NY (May 9, 2013) – IFC Films announced today that the company is acquiring North American rights to Scott Coffey’s ADULT WORLD, which had its world premiere at last month’s 2013 Tribeca Film Festival. The film, with a screenplay by Andy Cochran, stars Emma Roberts, Evan Peters, John Cusack, Armando Riesco, Cloris Leachman and Shannon Woodward. ADULT WORLD was produced by Justin Nappi and Kevn Turen of Treehouse Pictures with Joy Gorman and Alex Goldstone of Anonymous Content and Manu Gargi. Executive producers are Mohammed Al Turki, Joel Michaely and Paul Green. IFC Films is planning a day and date theatrical and VOD release.

ADULT WORLD stars Emma Roberts as Amy – naïve, awkward and anxious to get her poetry career off the ground. Living with her parents in a seemingly bland upstate New York town and desperate for income, she begrudgingly accepts a job at Adult World, the local sex shop. Owned by a frisky elderly couple and staffed by sweet local boy Alex, Amy balances her work amongst the pornography and sex toys by fiercely pursuing a surefire kick start for her success: a mentorship with reclusive star poet Rat Billings (the hilarious John Cusack). As Amy’s world melds with that of her co-workers, she slowly learns that inspiration can be found in the most improbable places.
