Movies About Writers

By Josi S. Kilpack

I was pondering this week on the many movies where the plot revolves around writers and was surprised at just how many I could come up with, and yet I know there are some I've missed. So, I'm going to present my list, and I'd love for you to fill in the ones I missed.

Stranger than Fiction

The Secret Window


Romancing the Stone

Jewel of the Nile

Martian Child

Finding Neverland


Finding Forrester

The Shining

So, what did I miss?

Krista said...

Sylvia (Plath)
Wonder Boys
As Good as it Gets
Something's Gotta Give

Wow, there are a lot!

One of my all-time (humorous) favorites is an older one: Throw Mama from the Train.

My all time favorite is, Stranger than Fiction. It revolves around writing, rather than the writing just being a subplot.

If you haven't seen it, you really, really need to! One caution, there is a bedroom scene, so you might want to fast forward through that.

2012. My friend ali said that one was actually quite touching to her.
