Author’s Anonymous (2014)
When a dysfunctional group of unpublished writers accept Hannah into their fold, the last thing they expect is her overnight success. Can these lovable misfits achieve their artistic dreams and avoid killing one another in the process?
Wow so maybe I just took this movie the wrong way because I call myself an author. The movie was incredibly insulting and did not do a good job of depicting authors. At least the authors I know. I thought I’d give that as a disclaimer so people can keep that in mind when reading my review.
Anyway, it was very predictable. I called the blond sleeping with the punk kid at the opening. For the most part the movie was just a steady stream of insult to people who want to be published writers. The fact that the whole group imploded because one of them got success is really sad. It didn’t make matters any better that she slept her way to success.
It was supposed to be a documentary, they addressed the cameras often enough, but there were lots of shots that couldn’t be done with that approach. Inconsistent.
Just overall a real disappointment.
