When Harold Crick (Will Ferrell) begins to hear a voice in his head narrating his every action, he searches for answers of the literary kind. Professor Jules Hilbert (Dustin Hoffman) will help him find his narrator, writer Karen Eiffel (Emma Thompson) and ask her to kindly not kill him.
Oh, how I love this movie. Simply adore it. I like it's slow but never dull pace, it's love-able and quirky characters and the ability it has to make me smile, cry a little, laugh, take up a new hobby and want to hug my loved ones just a little closer. Plus, I always take to wearing a watch for a few months after viewing this. If you haven't seen this one yet, or haven't seen it for awhile then go on and pop it in this weekend, I feel confident enough in it's plot and performances to declare that no matter who you are at the very least you'll like it a lot or adore it as I do.
Motherly Advice: With filters on Medium there's a few things to be aware of before sitting kids or teens in front of this one. Emma Thompson plays the writer who is writing Harold's story and throughout most of the movie she is trying to figure out how to kill him off in the story (not knowing he is real). She imagines jumping off a building, driving off a bridge and visits an emergency room to experience people who are dying, all in hopes of some inspiration on how Harold himself should die. At one point Harold imagines the baker lying naked on his bed, we don't see this day dream we only hear it narrated (he then later apologizes to her for "o-ogling" her). Then there is the scene of heaving kissing between Harold and the baker that could be uncomfortable but I tried it out on the Most sex filter and it was clipped just after they first kiss. However, you will still see them in bed directly after with covers up under their shoulders as she sleeps and he listens to the narrator. So there you have it. With Most sex filters I'd suggest this one as suitable for teens 15 and up.
