A Story about Love and Writing

Stuck in Love, or as it was formerly called Writers (and before that A Place for Me), is a 2012 romantic comedy about a family of writers and their tribunals concerning love. The movie was written and directed by Josh Boon.

I quite like how there are three different stories all woven together. For one you have William Borgens, who is an acclaimed writer waiting for his re-married ex-wife to return to him. Then there is Samantha Borgens, daugther of William, newly published author and quite cynical when it comes to love and last but not least Rusty Borgens, Sam’s brother, a High School student and huge Stephen King fan who falls in love for the first time.

There is so much I liked about the movie that I don’t even know where to start. The soundtrack was absolutely amazing (e.g. Between the Bars by Elliot Smith or At Your Door by Nate Walcott, Mike Mogis and Big Harp), but I also liked the general theme of writing. Everybody had a different style and approach to it and whichever way they chose to express their thoughts was the right one. Also, I most certainly adore Lily Collins! But she wasn’t the only great actor; you can also enjoy the performance of: Greg Kinnear, Jennifer Connelly, Nat Wolff, Logan Lerman, Kristen Bell and Liana Liberato. Towards the end there is even a cameo of Stephen King … well, rather his voice than himself, but that’s cool too.

If you enjoy romantic comedys or family drama this should definitely be the right movie for you. If you’ve already seen it: What did you think of it? Do you maybe even have a favourite quote?
