The Muse


A Hollywood screenwriter basks in the honour of a humanitarian award presented to him at a black-tie dinner as his proud wife and daughters look on. One crappy morning later, a junior studio executive tells him that he's lost his creative edge and releases him from his contract. His confidence is shaken. He wants to work, but how can he, if word is out that he is over.
His mega-successful writer-friend puts him in touch with his secret, a muse, who turns out to be a mixed blessing, helping his wife more than him...

Visitor Comments

Ian Douglas: Ultimately, there are few laughs, and the storyline is somewhat silly.

Christofer Comodices: Exceptionally funny but unneccessary use of bad langauge.

Oswald Neluheni (20): Good but a bit confusing.
