HEALING THROUGH MEETING in STRANGER THAN FICTION

Kaitryn Wertz, Jungian-oriented Psychotherapist

A central organizing complex of the contemporary American psyche is the struggle between relatedness and narcissism in which narcissism is understood as arrogance, selfishness and the inability to love. Marc Forster’s quirky, poignant comedy Stranger than Fiction depicts this struggle in a story that illustrates what Martin Buber called “healing through meeting.” The isolated, controlled life of IRS auditor Harold Crick is turned upside down when he begins to hear a mysterious female narrator analyzing his thoughts and actions in alarming detail and declaring that his death is immanent. Realizing that to change his fate he must identify who is writing his story, Crick begins a journey of self-awareness that leads him from self-centered encapsulation to a new capacity for relatedness.  Played with obvious delight by Emma Thompson, Will Ferrell and Dustin Hoffman, this thoughtful comedy invites us to explore the connection between relationship and psychological development.
