Wonder Boys

I've always wanted to see this film, but for some reason just never got around to it. Finally caught it the other night and it's great. Very well written and directed, and of course the amazing cast are just that - amazing. One of Michael Douglas' best roles. He's really good.
It's directed by Curtis Hanson who is really good. Another great character driven story. So for those of you who are writing and will be directing character driven stories, watch this. Every character is well developed and unique. With flaws and goals and all kinds of obstacles.

Here's a clip of a very well written scene:
