The Rewrite (2014)

Directed by
Marc Lawrence

Hugh Grant and Marisa Tomei star in writer-director Marc Lawrence's romcom. The peak of Hollywood screenwriter Keith Michaels' career was 1997, when he won an Oscar for his craft. But it's been a long downward slump since then, during which the films he wrote bombed and his marriage ended. Now, with none of the studios interested in his work, he has relocate to Binghamton in upstate New York to take a university job teaching a screenwriting course. He gets off to a bad start, putting little effort into his classes, disparaging the works of Jane Austen to Mary Weldon, the Austen-loving department head; embarking on an affair with one of his students, Karen Gabney; and patronising the promising efforts of self-improving single-mum Holly Carpenter. None of this does him any favours, but it does lead to the crunch point that will give him a chance to start to rewrite his own life. Edited for content.
