Written by Zach Helm and directed by Marc Forster, 'Stranger Than Fiction' is the story of a tax man can Harold Crick (Will Ferrell) who begins to hear the voice of a woman who seems to be narrating his life. The woman's voice turns out to belong to Kay Eiffel, a writer played by Emma Thompson, and she is indeed narrating his life. In fact she's trying to finish her novel in which Harold Crick is the central character. The really bad news for Harold is that her main character always dies in the end. Harold, understandably, wants to find her and persuade her to come up with an alternative, and less fatal, ending. 'Stranger than Fiction' is now showing at cinemas nationwide.
