Wow! The day totally got away from me, and now it’s 4pm and I just realized I didn’t do a post today.
Since I have nothing intelligent to write and kids are bugging me with the age old question of, “What’s for dinner” I’m going to look to you guys for help on a future post I want to write…
So I ask…
What are your favorite movies that deal with writing, or an author, as the main storyline?
I personally love Romancing the Stone, because the beginning just cracks me up with the reality of what a writer really looks like and acts like when they’ve been working really hard to get to “The End”.
Another favorite stars Sean Connery as a reclusive writer in Finding Forrester.
I’ve tried to watch Adaptation several times, but never could get into it.
A recent movie that quickly became a favorite of mine is Limitless, starring Bradley Cooper as a writer with a contract and a pissed off editor nagging him for pages.
And one that’s always stuck with me, even though it relates to music and not writing, is Mr. Holland’s Opus. I’ve always thought that one could be a universal theme on someone who keeps trying to go after their dreams, even when life gets in their way.
So, what’s your favorite writing related movie?
