Editorial Reviews

In the tradition of Lost In Translation and The Squid and the Whale, PAPER MAN is a wonderfully quirky drama about people trying desperately to find the same joy in real life as they do in their imagination. Golden Globe and Tony nominee Jeff Daniels stars as
Richard Dunn, a no-hit wonder of a novelist squirreled away in Long Island by his sensible, surgeon wife (Emmy winner Lisa Kudrow) to get cracking on his next novel. Richard isn t totally alone: along for the ride is a local teen (Emma Stone in a breakout performance) who befriends Richard after he hires her to be a babysitter...his babysitter. Plus, there s
Richard s imaginary best friend from childhood, Captain Excellent (Ryan Reynolds), a confidante always ready to prod him along towards adulthood, whether Richard wants it or not. Aching, funny and true, PAPER MAN is a genuinely offbeat gem that marks the
promising debut of writing and directing team Kieran and Michele Mulroney.

Paper Man is quite simply a fantastic movie. I haven't been this emotionally affected by a film since Gran Torino. Emma Stone and Jeff Daniels' characters compliment each other perfectly. One has seemingly never grown up, while the other has been deprived of their childhood. The way that they form such a truly unique friendship and help each other to find out what's missing inside of them, keeping them from moving on with their respective lives, is amazing to watch unfold. These two characters seem very different at first, but you eventually come to find that they rely on the same type of crutch to help them function, albeit not all that well, in normal society. The movie also certainly doesn't take it self too seriously, with just enough moments of levity to keep the story grounded. The movie is a winner from beginning to end and I can attest to the fact that Paper Man stays great through multiple viewings; with it's top-notch acting and unbelievably gripping ending. The ending is one of the most poignant and moving cinematic experiences I've ever had.

Bottom Line: This is the epitome of a 5/5 movie. Buy the DVD/Blu-Ray, watch it, love it, and spread the word to friends and family about this awesome indie film!

I saw this movie at its premiere at the LA Film Festival and I loved it! It is quirky-funny, poignant and melancholy by turns -- exactly what I want in a film for grownups. The performances are stellar and the story highly original.

What an inventive feature debut for this killer directing duo. Paper Man successfully manages to mix big concept with the feel of an intimate character driven film. A fun, inventive, drama told through a comic frame. Great performances from the whole star-studded cast. A well- observed, tightly knit spiral into a troubled man's psyche, the film takes off fast and doesn't stop until its surprising and tense conclusion. It's refreshing to see indie-style filmmaking coming from such an accomplished cast and crew. Thumbs up for an original and moving soundtrack. Thumbs up for unique concept. Thumbs up for a great, creative partnership from its creators. Netflix it. Amazon it. Enjoy it.

A writer (Daniels) trying to start his second book and find himself meets a local high schooler (Stone) and a friendship is born. Richard (Daniels) has always been different, for one he's in his 40's and has an imaginary friend (Ryan Reynolds). His wife (Lisa Kudrow) drops him off at a house alone in hopes he will finally start his book. Not feeling inspired Richard rides to town and meets Abby (Stone). The mis-matched pair become fast friends and discover more about themselves in the process. I can not say enough good things about this movie. Emma Stone stole this movie, her acting was great and I expect to see awards in her future if she keeps this up. This movie has it all, great humor, writing, acting and is also very moving. Almost instantly you feel sorry for Richard and you really root for him the rest of the movie. Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds really make you feel for them and you are right there with them trying to give Richard the push he needs. The ending is unexpectedly touching and I actually got a little choked up. I honestly could go on all day about how much I liked this movie, it's just a shame movies like this one (where the plot and acting take center stage) don't get the audience they deserve while "Yogi Bear" gets all the attention it can get. Do yourself a favor and watch this, you won't regret it. First time ever...I give it an A+

First-time director Kieran Mulroney puts together an intriguingly thoughtful character study of a lopsided marriage and a confused friendship that leads to a great, and at times, comedic view.

Richard Dunn (Jeff Daniels) is a married novelist with a case of writer's block. His surgeon wife, Claire (Lisa Kudrow) or as he calls her, "The Doctor" takes him away to a small house in a little town to propel his writing forward and leaves him there. He brings along an unusual sidekick which is his imaginary friend, "Captain Excellent" (Ryan Reynolds). These two have been cohorts since grammar school, and Richard calls upon him in all types of situations. Or, will he show up on his own?

While dredging on with trying to write, Richard decides to take a bike ride to clear his head. He pulls a child-size bicycle from the garage and cruises quite oddly into town. This is where we meet Emma Stone during her breakout performance as "Abby". She's a loner, in need of a friend while Richard is of the same mind. He decides to hire her as a babysitter for no apparent reason and she comes to his home that evening while he leaves. She realizes that there is no baby present and goes along with this and all of Richard's various oddities that 'the doctor' never can understand. They soon develop a lovely and communicative friendship grounded in loneliness at first, then finding solace and comfort while talking with each other. Spending time together and learning quickly how alike they truly are, they establish a rapid rapport. Both are vastly misunderstood, quirky and extremely imaginative while viewing their individual stories unfold.
