Movies about writers
I have been looking through our video and DVD collection. I was suddenly aware that we have a number of films featuring stories about writers. Some of the movies are based on the lives of real writers. Other films feature a fictional character who is a writer.
A quick list from our library would include:
- Iris: based on the life of writer Iris Murdoch.
- Shakespeare in Love – based on the life of the bard himself.
- Finding Neverland – based on the life of J.M. Barrie.
- Moulin Rouge – a struggling author is the lead character.
- Romancing the Stone – the main character is a novelist.
- Jewel of the Nile – ditto.
- One Fine Day – a main character is a journalist.
- My House in Umbria – the main character is a novelist.
What movies have I missed?
I haven’t seen the new movie Miss Potter yet so that is one to add to the list (and my collection).
I know there must be many more titles to add to this list. Add your suggestions in the comments below.
