Movie Info

A failed composer takes in an aspiring novelist/dilettante, only to find himself pushed to the edge of insanity when his charity is taken for granted in this simmering black comedy from director Alan Cumming. John Vandermark (Cumming) has a sizable weak spot for handsome young artists. Upon meeting down-on-his-luck writer Sebastian St. German (David Boreanaz), the sympathetic musician is stirred to help the budding novelist by offering him room and board. It doesn't take long, however, for the generous host to realize that his good will is being trampled by his brash young tenant. When Vandermark discovers that St. German has been sleeping with every woman in sight while casually brushing off his own thinly-veiled advances, the stage is set for an explosive confrontation.more

Audience Reviews for Suffering Man's Charity (Ghost Writer)

this black comedy is just ok and frankly not that funny at all an all star cast pretty much gets wasted here.


This was one extremely disturbing movie. I didn't expect this from Alan Cumming, but I was impressed.

Heather Metzger

I'm not sure what to think of this one. Usually love Alan Cummins, he;s one incredibly talented Actor, but this one I really didn't get into. The story was pretty good, the Cast was great, but his over the top performance was...strange. It was wild and confusing, but good and exciting, if that makes any sense. Something about this though, that made it not so my cup of tea.
