Stranger Than Fiction
I highly recommend this movie to anyone, but especially to writers. This movie breaks the boundary between narrator, author and character. I don't want to spoil anything, so I will not say much about the plot. I will say however, that the character and the author are very similar, and this movie really focuses on the idea of what it means to truly live. More than that, the movie plays with genres and asks the question, what if the character an author wrote was a real person, and by writing their story, the author determines their fate?
