Rated PG-13 · 112 minutes · 2010

Action, Romantic comedy
This is a film that nicely encapsulates the state of current young adult lives—a world where patience is lost, music and technology rule, and boys apparently dig girls with constantly changing hair colors. Edgar Wright’s adaptation of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s graphic novels is a kinetic visual feast, and an often hilarious love story that is like no other movie. Michael Cera plays Scott Pilgrim, a 22-year-old Toronto resident rocking the world in a garage band. He falls for Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), a beautiful and somewhat droll woman who appeared in his dreams before he actually met her. They start dating, and all is well until Scott learns that he must battle Ramona’s “Seven Evil Exes” in a series of showdowns that get progressively more epic. The action is awesome; the music is great; and the supporting players are stellar. Brandon Routh and Chris Evans are funny as two of the exes, as is Kieran Culkin as Scott’s roommate. This is definitely a unique trip.

The Coast Halifax Pilgrim and a Plumtree Real life is rarely as romantic as the movies. But sometimes a small joke between friends turns into a great song title. Plumtree’s Carla Gillis recalls the birth of “Scott Pilgrim,” the song that inspired the character. by Carla Gillis 08/12/2010
