Directed by Curtis Hanson
Starring Michael Douglas, Tobey Maguire, Robert Downey Jr., Frances McDormand
Wonder Boys is a criminally underrated feel good drama picture. Douglas is warm and likeable in the lead role of a college professor who has written a classic novel in the past and has since become a prisoner of it since he can't bring himself to finish a new book. Hanson (8 Mile, L.A. Confidential) directs with his usual warm touch and makes the characters and brilliant story come alive in a way only few can.
