“The Girl in the Book” Movie Review
Alice Harvey (Emily VanCamp) is an editor at a New York book publisher.
Her boss wants her to prepare for the e-book version of an old book. Since Alice’s father handled the release of this book 15 years ago, her boss thought it would be natural for her to handle this release. Problem is, the author, Milan Daneker (Michael Nyqvist), also handled Alice, and is probably the reason she has sexual / psychological issues now.
The teenage Alice wanted to be a writer. Although gifted, her writing was a bit raw, so Milan offered to tutor her. While he was alone with Alice the much older Milan also took advantage of her sexually. Perv.
15 years later, with Alice and Milan working together on the new release of the book (which is ostensibly about Alice), the tensions within Alice build to a breaking point.
Alice’s many sexual encounters increase to the point where they are now getting her in trouble: She is often late.for work, she seduces her best friends teenage babysitter thus causing a rift between friends, she loses her latest boyfriend, Emmett (David Call), and on and on.
To see how it ends, watch the movie!
“The Girl in the Book” is an interesting independent movie with someone we know and love, Emily Vancamp. Just don’t cross her….revenge. 😉 And Ana Mulvoy-Ten as young Alice.
Go to IMDb for more information. We watched this on Netflix. Thank you, Ryan!
