I watched Stranger Than Fiction this week. I highly recommend it, especially for writers.
The movie follows the life of Harold Crick (Will Ferrell), the main character in a new book written by Karen Eiffel (Emma Thompson).
There are many literary allusions, and the dialog is quite clever. I enjoyed the movie so much, I watched it a second time with my brother and his girlfriend.
Here's a quote from the movie I thought you might appreciate. When asked how she came up with the ending of her story, Karen Eiffel says: "Like anything worth writing, it came inexplicably and without method."
Rent Stranger Than Fiction and watch it. Time well spent.
