Witty and charming movie
9 October 2014 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I did not expect much from this movie, surprisingly I smiled from start to finish. The Rewrite is a lively comedy about second chance and self-acceptance. A one-time awarded Hollywood screenwriter takes a job as a writer-in-residence at Binghampton University! "Gotta pay the bills"…It's a far cry from his former glorious LA life and his teaching skills are questionable. As the leading man, Grant embraces his maturity in this project, it suits him well. I was charmed by the chemistry from a solid cast including Allison Janney as a humorless Jane Austen scholar and the radiant Marisa Tomei. Sometimes all we need is one humble witty comedy like The Rewrite!
