Movie Summary

Director:
Jared Hess
Released:
2009
Rating:
PG-13
From the writer-director of Napoleon Dynamite comes another quirky comedy about growing up. Benjamin (Michael Angarano), home-schooled by his eccentric mother (Jennifer Coolidge), is a loner whose passion for writing leads him on a journey as his story first gets ripped off by a legendary fantasy novelist, Ronald Chevalier (Jemaine Clement), and then is adapted into a disastrous movie by the small town's most prolific homespun filmmaker.
