IFC Film has taken North American rights to Scott Coffey's comedy "Adult World," which stars Emma Roberts as an aspiring poet in need of cash who takes a day job at her local sex shop. The film recently had its North American premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. Watch a clip below.

IFC is planning a day-and-date theatrical and VOD release for the film, which is penned by Andy Cochran, and also stars John Cusack, Cloris Leachman, Evan Peters, Armando Riesco and Shannon Woodward.

Here's a more detailed synopsis:

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.

Our TOH! review of the film is here.
