The Muse () - IMDb
In an afterlife way station resembling a block of hotels, the lives of the recently-deceased are examined in a court-like setting. A husband and wife in their 30s decide to quit their jobs, live as free spirits and cruise America in a Winnebago. A street-wise, middle-aged moll named Gloria stands up against the mobs, which is complicated by a six-year-old urchin with a will of his own who she reluctantly takes under her wing after A young man about to get married earns extra cash by driving a local mobster, but things go awry when the mobster is killed by a rival crime boss.
A writer's young assistant becomes both pawn and catalyst in his boss's disintegrating household. In s Texas, a woman trying to recover sexy photos of herself and divorce her husband witnesses a murder and uncovers corrupt land dealings. The lives of two struggling musicians, who happen to be brothers, inevitably change when they team up with a beautiful, up-and-coming singer. What happens when a screenwriter Brooks loses his edge, he turns to anyone he can for help And he's willing to pay, albeit reluctantly, whatever price it takes to satisfy this goddess, especially when her advice gets him going again on a sure-fire script.
However, this is not the limit of her help, she also gets the writer's wife MacDowell going on her own bakery enterprise, much to the chagrin of Brooks, who has already had to make many personal sacrifices for his own help. Albert Brooks is funny.
He has an interesting and unique way of telling story with humor, wit and sincerity. He is not afraid of appearing to be 'un-hip'. Actually that is the charm of most of his work. He has been compared to Woody Allen but I think that his work is much more universal. Woody's giant persona gets in the way of his stories whereas Brooks actually becomes a character. He does not play himself and does not comment of things.
He 'plays' characters like a real actor. Andie MacDowell is good when a good script guides her.
The Muse (episode)
Sharon Stone was made for the role of the Muse. Her energy is sexy, ditzy as well as forceful. There are some cameos in this movie that are priceless and lend an air of authenticity to the side of Hollywood that most people have no access to. I have seen this movie a hundred times and it never fails to make me laugh. Visit Prime Video to explore more titles.

The Muse by Jessie Burton review – a solid follow-up to The Miniaturist
Full Cast and Crew. With his career on the skids, a Hollywood screenwriter enlists the aid of a modern-day muse, who proves to test his patience. What is Emily Mortimer Watching? Jeff Bridges Movies I've Seen. Burton constructs the dual plotline with painstaking craft, and has a good ear for the ambient interruptions of nature: If there seems a fiercer conviction in the Spanish panel of the story, it may be because Burton is more engaged by the processes of painting, and by the virtuosity of its effects.
The bibliography she appends at the close indicates her immersion in the art history of the interwar years. She has also done her homework on the Spanish civil war. Of course, every historical novelist must rise to the challenges of the job, one of which is to absorb — and conceal — those reams of research. Sometimes the work done in the library has a tendency to poke through the fabric of the prose, as here: The test of making language sound true to period is one even the best writers flunk at some point; anachronism is the sleeping monster of the historical novel.
It is a severely competent novel. The craftsmanship is solid, the sincerity of feeling is sustained to the end; none of it is exceptional. Yet who would bet against it selling a million copies like its predecessor? Topics Fiction Book of the day.
