movie: Stranger than Fiction
starring: Emma Thompson, Dustin Hoffman
format: TV EDIT
plot: A man starts to hear a voice in his head that is describing everything he's doing. He soon learns a writer is writing about his life
I think the title says it all. The idea that someone else would be able to create your life for you is a scarey thought for nearly everyone.
The idea of the mundane things we do in our everyday life, can actually be important clues to where we are headed, isn't thought of by most. (unless you are a writer or actor or someone who has to create characters usually)
This is a morality story as much as it is a love story. The lead character has to change his life without doing anything over the top drastic. There were moments when I wanted to compare it to the Matrix but, it's not on that extreme of a side.
What do I think i learned from this Film?
Destiny has a way of getting what it wants no matter what you do. The power of thought is more important then anything else around us.
