Stranger Than Fiction
My friend Jim and I watched this DVD together this morning. On the surface it is a touching and interesting movie about a man who discovers he is a character in someones novel, and that the author is trying to kill him. On a deeper level it explores our fear of death, our wrestling with seeming fate and our questions about who is narrating our life, and encourages us to live our lives fully while we are alive. All the actors were superb and some of the special effects to create the unique character of Harold Crick were amazing. I recommend it.
