Harold Crick (Will Ferrell), a senior agent for the Internal Revenue Service in Chicago, seems a virtual automaton. The reason is soon revealed when we find that Harold is a fictional creation, the central character in a new book by celebrated recluse Kay Eiffel (Emma Thompson). "I'm a character in my own life," he tells his shrink, whose solution is to recommend him to literature professor Jules Hilbert (Dustin Hoffman). To find out who's "writing" Harold, the prof tells him to start living the life he's always wanted: learning the guitar and courting his baker Ana (Maggie Gyllenhaal) seem a good start.

Enjoy a brilliant script by Zach Helm, fine acting, an arresting soundtrack and Chicago's finest architecture.


open_quote Stranger Than Fiction is a meditation on life, art and romance, and on the kinds of responsibility we have. Such an uncommonly intelligent film does not often get made close_quote Roger Ebert
