STRANGER THAN FICTION (2006) (PG-13)

Aug. 18, Woodstock Reformed Church, 16 Tinker Street, Woodstock

Will Ferrell stars in this thoughtful comedy drama as Harold Crick, a lonely IRS agent whose mundane existence is interrupted by the sound of a personal narrator who knows his every thought, feeling and action, and seems to know when and where he will die. With the help of Professor Jules Hilbert (Dustin Hoffman), Harold discovers that he’s the main character in a novel-in-progress and that the voice belongs to Karen Eiffel (Emma Thompson), an eccentric author notorious for killing her main characters in creative ways. “A thinking person’s dramedy that grapples with issues of fate and free will, love and liberation.” — Steven Rea, The Philadelphia Inquirer.
