I don't know that they make movies like Wonder Boys any longer. I think movies like this aren't really profitable for the studios anymore. It might be my wife's favorite movie.
Wonder Boys takes place over a February weekend at a Pittsburgh liberal arts college's literary festival, Word Fest. One of the best things about the movie is the way it depicts that time of year when the snow is ugly and wet and sometimes it rains and all of the roads are covered in brown salty slush.
Anyhow I love this movie, it is one of my favorites.
