Stranger than Fiction (4 stars)

Stranger than Fiction image“As a novelist (Emma Thompson) struggles with how to kill off her main character, IRS auditor Harold Crick (Will Ferrell) begins hearing her narration in his head and realizes he must prevent his own death. Crick’s world turns upside down, and it’s a life-or-death situation as he tries to persuade best-selling author Kay Eiffel to change the ending of her novel. Maggie Gyllenhaal, Dustin Hoffman and Queen Latifah lead the fine supporting cast.”

Geoff’s Comments: I greatly enjoyed this movie. The acting was wonderful; Emma Thompson, Dustin Hoffman and Will Ferrell gave standout performances. And the story, well, it’s in a vein I always appreciate; putting the value of our daily life into perspective, and recognizing that breaking from routines and awaking from a ‘sleepwalking’ existence can breathe the most amazing color and breath into one’s life, no matter what the outcome.
