Past Discussions

Stranger than Fiction Movie Discussion

Everybody knows that your life is a story. But what if a story was your life?
Harold Crick (Will Ferrell) is your average I.R.S. Agent: monotonous, boring, and repetitive. But one day this all changes when he begins to hear an author inside of his head narrating his life. The narrator is extraordinarily accurate, and when she reveals that he is going to die, Harold must find the author of the story, and ultimately his life, to convince her to change the ending of the story before it is too late.
