Wonder Boys

I came across this relatively old movie and thought it would be perfect for all my writer friends out there.  Enjoy.

Michael Douglas plays Grady Tripp, a distracted and downtrodden professor who is suffering from an epic case of writer’s block.   Life’s little surprises and academic politics aren’t helping the creative process either.  Every writer has been there:  when life seems to be wildly spinning away from you, the only thing you can control is your writing.  WONDER BOYS thus asks the question, what happens when you lose control of the writing too?   Michael Chabon’s novel skips along with a rueful comic sensibility and director Curtis Hanson and screenwriter Steve Kloves captures its literate warmth.
