Wonder Boys


(out of 5)

Rich, uplifting comedy from Curtis Hanson, with  better than ever before as an aging college professor who has the weekend from hell fall in his lap: his married girlfriend (, another golden notch in her belt) is pregnant, his troubled but gifted student () really has some problems to deal with, and his eccentric agent () descends upon him to pressure him about the book that he has been promising to deliver for almost a decade. Steve Kloves’ script couldn’t be more deft, and the photography by Dante Spinotti is the work of a true artist.
