Karen Eiffel is a chain-smoker famous writer, struggling with writer’s block and she is trying to come up with the ending of a story (she always kills her main characters but this time she cannot find a way to kill his protagonist at the end of the story).
Harold Crick is an average man working as IRS agent, who lives his life according to routine until something upsets him: he begins to hear a mysterious female voice narrating his life. It’s Karen’s voice and Harold is unknowingly the protagonist of Karen’s novel so he’s doomed to die.
Great cast, nice movie, original and interesting script.
Will Ferrell, supremely gifted in comedic roles, puts on a good performance in a more serious role.
Emma is very convincing playing the weird writer.
