One of my favorite Paul Bettany movies, where he plays a firestarter who will do anything--almost anything, until it feels wrong--to return to his home and family inside a novel. He's one of three heroes alongside the father who accidentally called him out of the book and his daughter, a young writer who believes in happy endings.

I first saw this feature length film in a theater. That was before I read the book of the same name. I cried, and the movie scared me in places. The villains have a Nazi-esque feel that has since become too common in real life. There are fewer surprises on rewatching. ( )
