Yesterday’s Movie: Wonder Boys

Definitely for those who like subtle, intellectual humor, Wonder Boys stars Michael Douglas, Tobey Maguire, Robert Downey Jr., Katie Holmes, and Frances McDormand in a movie about writers. Coming of age tales are usually focused on the teen set but novelist Michael Chabon has set us a tale where both student and teacher need to grow up; of course they do, but it takes a lot of weed, a dead dog, and the loss of a 2600 page novel to get them there. Excellent acting and a good story.
