Kristen Stewart: An Exhaustive Examination

Adventureland (2009)

Em is a chill, stone-cold cutey who works at the Adventureland amusement park in Pennsylvania while home for the summer from NYU. She listens to cool music and steals rum and drives a dorky little car. One day, she crosses paths with new Adventureland employee James, and they hit it off thanks to their complimentary mumbly, chill-yet-manic energy. Their burgeoning relationship is complicated by James’ previous romantic misfires and also Em’s affair with the park’s chief mechanic, Connell.  When she’s not canoodling with James or hooking up with Connell, she’s confronting bigotry amongst her coworkers and/or getting stoned.After a mostly enjoyable and carefree summer, things reach a boiling point when the affair between Connell and Em – which she called off due to her feelings for James – is revealed. This leads to Em quitting the park and dropping off the grid for a bit, before heading back to New York.Surprise! James shows up at her cool little New York apartment to apologize how things went down over the summer. After clearing the air, they reconcile… sexually.
