A uniquely crafted comedy set in the key of life, ELIZABETHTOWN is the story of an unexpected romance that develops against the backdrop of a hilariously elaborate memorial. A life-affirming, comic fable that takes on matters of life and death in a surprising and heartfelt way, ELIZABETHTOWN is the journey of a young man turned in an unexpected direction and the woman who helps him brighten his outlook on the world around him.
Crowe, who won an Academy AwardŽ in 2000 for his original screenplay for ALMOST FAMOUS, again draws on his own experiences - the emotions he felt at his father's unexpected passing - to inspire a motion picture. ELIZABETHTOWN is about a quiet Oregon shoe designer who gets to know his father and his own family roots only after his dad's death. He is aided in his journey by an unstoppably optimistic woman, and a host of family members, who combine in unique ways to teach him what's it's like to be truly alive.
