Stranger Than Fiction
Yet another movie I'd highly recommend. It's an interesting story, very well told. I'd say, "How could you go wrong with Emma Thompson" but I suspect most people I know would answer, "By adding Will Ferrell." The good news is that he's actually good and the acting is nuanced. Add in Maggie Gyllenhall as the baker/tax rebel and Dustin Hoffman and you've got a really strong cast. I'd even recommend this one to my grandparents.
