The screenplay to the latest film from the Oscar-winning writer/ director of Jerry Maguire and
Almost Famous

Drew Baylor (Orlando Bloom) was the wunderkind of Mercury Shoes: the hot industrial designer who'd dreamed up the powerhouse athletic-wear company's next revolutionary shoe concept-the Spasmotica-upon which Mercury's hopes of global domination were pinned. That is until eight years of development--including a research and promotion outlay equal to the operating costs of a small nation--went up in smoke as the extensively hyped and highly anticipated Spasmotica premiered to colossal failure. Suddenly the laughingstock of the industry, dumped by his boss and his girl, things can't seem to get worse--until Drew gets word of his father's death. With his mother grief-stricken and his sister needed by her side, Drew must travel to his father's provincial hometown of Elizabethtown, Kentucky, to attend the memorial on his family's behalf. On the flight, Drew meets Claire (Kirsten Dunst), a witty and charming flight attendant, who helps him navigate the rough waters ahead and proves that even in our darkest hour love and redemption are never out of reach.

Review:

"As a screenwriter, Mr. Crowe is an unmatched comic portraitist . . . and as a director he has an extraordinary gift for drawing out rounded, complex performances . . . and for indicating the fine emotional shadings in the relationships among his characters." -A. O. Scott, The New York Times
