Storyline

Young, bestselling author Eryn Bellow concludes her bookstore tour with her agent selling film rights and closing a six figure advance for her follow-up. Headwinds arise as critics get offended by the claims that Eryn is being declared a living literary legend. The storm gathers force as the assaults gravitate from bad reviews to a fake-memoir designed to obliterate her from the field. Through the noise, Eryn attempts to write her way out of the public fray, and reclaim her voice in the minds of her readers. Along the way, she hopes to prove a happy ending is not always a bad thing. Written by Jason Cook

Convoluted
23 September 2019 | by bugger-17071See all my reviews

This movie is convoluted without proper exposition, particularly the characters and plot points early on in the movie never get a proper explanation. The film drags on for too long, it could be 30 minutes shorter and not much would change. The movie's saving grace is definitely Fran Drescher's character, whose down-to-earth, driven attitude is very likeable. The main character is harder to watch, and her motivations are not explained clearly which makes it hard to root for her. The movie tries to make a point in the last few minutes which falls utterly flat.

Overall, I would say don't watch this unless you are a Fran Drescher fan, because she does get a lot of screen time and delivers a very solid performance. Other than her presence, the film is unremarkable and boring. It drags on for too long, focusing on an untinteresting main character in a plot that is too abstract to be engaging.
