Posted on: November 8, 2006 | Views: 205 | Comment

Novelist Karen Eiffel(Emma Thompson) is nervous about a new assistant(Queen Latifah) she sees as a corporate spy sent to watch her as she struggles with writer's block.

Stranger Than Fiction is about a novelist who is is struggling to complete her latest -- and potentially finest -- book. She just has to find a way to kill off her main character, Harold Crick, and she'll be done. Little does she know that Harold Crick is inexplicably alive and well in the real world as an IRS auditor and suddenly aware of her words. Fiction and reality collide when the bewildered and resistant Harold hears what she has in mind, and realizes that he must find a way to change her -- and his -- ending.
