Stranger than Fiction

Wednesday, 31 October 2007 08:24

Will Farrell stars as Harold Crick, a lonely IRS agent whose mundane existence is transformed when he hears a mysterious voice narrating his life. With the help of Professor Jules Hilbert (Dustin Hoffman), Harold discovers he's the main character in a novel-in-progress and that the voice belongs to Karen Eiffel (Emma Thompson), an eccentric author famous for killing her main characters in creative ways. Harold must quickly track down Eiffel and stop her before she conjures up a way to finish him off.

Okay, so this is by no means a new movie. In fact we picked it up on the discount rack at blockbuster the other night. I was expecting a typical Will Ferrell comedy that really inspired no thought or introspection at all. Instead I was pleasantly surprised by this thought provoking movie. As the story develops with Harold leaving behind a life of boredom and "rut" to finally live his life with a great amount of enthusiasm, and vigor, it reminded me of so many other people in this world who just settle for the mundane and never really explore what living would really be like. I recommend picking up the dvd if you haven't already seen it.

I know this is not my typical kind of post, but this movie kind of inspired me. Maybe next week I will review a relatively new movie.

Becky and I watched this movie last night. It is NOT the Will Ferrell we all know on SNL and Elf. None the less, he was great in the movie. All the supporting actors and actresses fit in their roles perfectly. It's a movie to watch with someone close and a bottle or two of wine. It will definitely inspire conversation.

Two wine glsses full, Scott-O!!
