Colin Firth, Jude Law and Nicole Kidman star in this pagebound biopic about Max Perkins' time as a book editor at Scribner Publishing in the 1920s--during which he oversaw works by Thomas Wolfe, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald and others. As always, writers don't make for particularly cinematic subjects, but longtime British stage director Michael Grandage fashions a dutifully old-fashioned tale of creative egos clashing. 104 minutes PG-13.
