Movies About Authors

It’s chilly and there’s not much to do with your family or friends. So snuggle up and watch a movie about the life of your favorite writer! Many are independent. Many are forgotten but fantastic. You’ve probably never hard of some these before. I’m looking forward to watching the ones about Mary Shelly. What can I say? When it gets cold, I’m in a Mary Shelly sort of mood.

I was really close to adding On the Road here but Kerouac wanted his work to remain fiction, despite the influence of his real life road trip. If I forgot anyone, let me know!
