Big Fish Movie Synopsis
Edward Bloom (Finney) has always been a teller of tall tales about his oversized life as a young man (McGregor), when his wanderlust led him on an unlikely journey from small town in Alabama, around the world, and back again. His mythic exploits dart from the delightful to the delirious as he weaves epic tales about giants, blizzards, a witch and conjoined-twin lounge singers.
With his larger-than-life stories, Bloom charms almost everyone he encounters except for his estranged son Will (Crudup). When his mother Sandra (Lange) tries to reunite them, Will must learn how to separate fact from fiction as he comes to terms with his father’s great feats and great failings.
