Directed by Tim Burton.
Screenplay by John August.
Based on the NovelĀ by Daniel Wallace.

Tim Burton crafts another great story in his own quirky way. Ed Bloom is dying and his son is trying his best to figure out what exactly is fact and what is fiction from what his father has been telling him his whole life. Will Bloom (Crudup) asks his father for the truth and his father insists on telling tall tales. Everyone that meets Ed Bloom genuinely likes him and the tales may be unbelievable, but who like a boring story anyways. This is a very well done movie and I think it is one of Tim Burton’s best.
