Storytelling Movie Synopsis
Two separate stories about the lives of teenagers and college students:
"Fiction," set on a college campus in the mid-80s, concerns female student Vi (Blair), who finds herself
dangerously attracted to her creative-writing professor (Wisdom), also a Pulitzer Prize-winning
black author, after he humiliates her cerebral palsy-afflicted boyfriend Marcus (Fitzpatrick) in front of the class.
In "Non-Fiction," Toby (Giamatti), an aspiring documentary filmmaker, selects slacker Scooby Livingston (Webber)
as the main subject of his film on disillusioned high school youth.
A lot of people don't seem to understand that the two sections are in fact related. Withouth spoiling the plot I can say that Consuelo's Grandson in Non-Fiction relates to a character from 'Fiction.'
I actually think of it as a dark humorous movie which haves lot to say about the time we are living at, more movies like this should be made, for people to analyse their oun life; also like "happines" also from Todd.
