Nine Struggling Writers on Film Print Email

Cover images from three of the movies on this list: The Shining, Ruby Sparks, and Sideways

It seems appropriate to talk about films instead of books this week with the recent announcement of Oscar nominees.  Attention aspiring writers - the characters in these films just might have some lessons learned to share, or at least provide a humorous look at the struggling writer stereotype.  From lunatic Jack Torrance in The Shining to the magical writing powers bestowed to Calvin Weir-Fields in Ruby Sparks, Word&Film has provided an interesting list for your entertainment when writer's block strikes.  Reserve movies in the library catalog HERE.
