but he gets up and leaves. Edward doesn’t even notice.
Did I want to deprive my soon-to-beborn
like this of his own? This lady fishand I, well, we had the same destiny.
EDWARD AND WILL:
We were part of the same equation.
Honey, it’s still your night.
Will can’t articulate his anger. He just leaves.
(closer; he holds up his ring)
the day my son was born.
A LAUGH from the crowd.
The crowd APPLAUDS.

Synopsis: When Edward Bloom (Albert Finney) becomes ill, his son, William (Billy Crudup), travels to be with him. William has a strained relationship with Edward because his father has always told exaggerated stories about his life, and William thinks he's never really told the truth. Even on his deathbed, Edward recounts fantastical anecdotes. When William, who is a journalist, starts to investigate his father's tales, he begins to understand the man and his penchant for storytelling.
