Movie Info

A writer attempting to finish her first novel seeks the wisdom of her mentor and ex-lover in hopes of overcoming a crippling case of writer's block in writer/director Kurt Gunn's enigmatic thriller. Marian (Carrie Preston) is writing an absurdist novel about a par of brothers living in a landlocked boat when the ideas simply stop coming. Advised that she could overcome her problem by simply killing off the protagonist, Marian discovers that task is easier said than done when the willful character escapes the pages of her book and begins wrecking havoc in her personal life. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Lovely by Surprise

All Critics (4)

One of those wilfully quirky movies that we're not quite sure what to do with, this film actually gets under our skin as it goes along

July 14, 2010 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Lovely by Surprise's aggressive quirkiness is off-putting from the get-go and the biggest barrier to engaging with the film.

January 31, 2010 | Rating: D+ | Full Review…

The film is bizarre and at times touching, but in the end leaves the viewer perplexed and a little unsatisfied with the stories.
