My husband spotted the DVD. "Isn't that one of your movies?"
L'Incroyable Destin de Harold Crick?
Yes! BUY IT!!!
The original English title is Stranger Than Fiction, with Will Ferrel, Emma Thompson and Dustin Hoffman, and a few more big names. Though it's the characters and their situations that I love. An ordinary boring man who starts hearing his life narrated to him, a writer with a serious ten-year case of writer's block and a hilarious dry-humored literature professor who lends a hand. I won't tell you more ("Spoilers, sweetie!" says Doctor River Song), except that I love every second of this film - there's even pastries! It makes me think a lot about the writing/plotting process, how we research ideas, and even the meaning of life.
So if you're a writer, a boring ordinary person, a lit professor, a bus driver, a little boy on a bike, a secretary, a baker/pâtissier, an IRS agent or an adult who never go to go to space camp...take the time to watch Stranger Than Fiction this weekend! Here's the first couple minutes...hope you're inspired ;)
