In this 2014 movie, The Rewrite, Hugh Grant plays a screenwriter who has been in a rut, both professionally and personally, since his movie premiered 15 years ago. With the script to the sequel going nowhere, and in desperate need of cash-flow, he accepts a writer-in-residence job at a small university in upstate New York.
At first he has no intentions of going through with his duties as a professor… but then he meets Holly (Marisa Tomei.)
Through his conversations with her, he learns not only can he a better professor who actually cares about his students, but also a better person as well.

I found this to be a very enjoyable movie, and definitely recommend it if you’re looking to curl up under the covers on a rainy fall day.
