About the film:

Nominated for Best Overlooked Film by the Central Ohio Film Critics Association in 2011.

A bass guitarist for a garage-rock band, Scott Pilgrim has never had trouble getting a girlfriend; usually, the problem is getting rid of them. But when Ramona Flowers skates into his heart, he finds she has the most troublesome baggage of all: an army of ex-boyfriends who will stop at nothing to eliminate him from her list of suitors.

Its speedy, funny, happy-sad spirit is so infectious that the movie makes you feel at home in its world even if the landscape is, at first glance, unfamiliar.

—A.O. Scott, New York Times

About the filmmaker:

A writer, director and producer, Edgar Wright first made his mark in the late 1990s with the British TV comedy series Spaced (1991-2001), written by Jessica Hynes and Simon Pegg. Wright reteamed with Pegg on his 2004 breakthrough feature, the international smash hit zombie comedy Shaun of the Dead (2004), and also on the two subsequent parts of the “Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy,” Hot Fuzz (2007) and The World’s End (2013). Wright co-wrote and directed the star-studded Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) based on the graphic novels by Bryan Lee O’Malley, wrote and directed the critically acclaimed action thriller Baby Driver (2017) and directed the documentary The Sparks Brothers (2021).
