“This may sound like gibberish to you, but I think I’m in a tragedy.” – Harold Crick
Harold Crick (Will Ferrell) is an IRS agent who starts hearing his life narrated (by Emma Thompson) in his head, foretelling his upcoming death. Running out of options he seeks the help of a local literary professor (Dustin Hoffman).
This is a brilliant comedy that combines philosophical and literary theory to examine our control over our own destiny, how far we would go to preserve that, and what it’s like to live a story.
Queen Latifah and Maggie Gyllenhaal co-star in this extraordinary film.
