A film by Lina Roessler
Drama/Comedy | 100 min. | Canada/USA | 2021
Starring: Michael Caine, Aubrey Plaza, Scott Speedman, Cary Elwes, Ellen Wong
Lucy Stanbridge (Aubrey Plaza) has inherited her father’s boutique publishing house, and the ambitious would-be editor has nearly sunk it with failing YA titles and bad reviews.
When she discovers the company is owed a book by Harris Shaw (Michael Caine), a reclusive, cantankerous, booze-addled author who originally put the company on the map, she looks to him for one last stab at salvation, both commercial and critical.
Her timing couldn’t be more perfect. Harris owes money and he happens to have a new book – which he hates. Lucy’s ecstatic until she finds out Harris’s old contract stipulates that no one edit his work. However, in exchange, he must tour the book.
And so is born the book tour from hell – where fame doesn’t equal fortune.
