Paul Sheldon used to write for a living. Now he’s writing for his life…
Romance novelist Paul Sheldon is rescued from a car crash by self proclaimed “number one fan,” Annie Wilkes, and is taken to her secluded house in the woods. While he is recuperating, Annie reads Paul’s newest novel and discovers her favourite character, Misery Chastain, has been killed off. As Annie’s obsession takes a dark turn, Paul is forced to write a new Misery novel, and realizes Annie has no intention of letting him go. He is writing as if his life depends on it - and it does.
MISERY is based on Stephen King’s classic psychological thriller and written by William Goldman, the same screenwriter of the 1990 movie.
