A Virgin State of Mind by Bryan Mora (brymo) - Short - Rory becomes a pawn to an older male's sexual crusade -yet becomes a catalyst of change in this man's life as she’s faced with an unplanned pregnancy. 19 pages - pdf, format
Okay, I just finished reading the script. Wow. That's all I can say. That was f*cking amazing. Wow. Congratulations, you just blew me away. In my opinion, this was the best script I have read on this site. I'm a sucker when it comes to a geniunce, real life romantic film... especially, if like real life they don't happy endings. It really reminded me of one of my favourite films, 'The Wackness' (as in 'The Wackness', you know that Luke is going to get his heart broken, the same Rory is going to get hers broken).
There is nothing I can see to improve, bar the minor typos mentioned above. I also noticed that sometimes, in dialogue, certain words have unnecassary capital letters, if they start a new line? They need to be sorted out. But apart from that, there was nothing I can see to improve.
This story was so beautiful. And the use of flashbacks worked perfectly, as did the voiceover at the end. The final scene, with Rory's voiceover was truely incredible.
I am glad I gave this a read. Congratulations. This was amazing.
First off, as mentioned above, Alexis appears a few times but actually I prefer the Alexis to Rory as the latter doesn't fit for me.
This is well written but your usr of parentheticals is strange at times. This is also true for your descriptions on ocassion. Not to bad though, I'm just been picky but sometimes you write their emotions too much. It distracts a little.
The story is excellent though. An older guy using a girl for his pleasure and the girl blinded by infatuation, mistaking it for love. It's written well thoughout and the dialogue is strong. It really is a great story and I also don't see how you could improve on it. Format needs a little work but that's it.
Great work, really enjoyable read.
Check out my scripts...if you want to, no pressure.
And I actually think you should change the title of this script... for some reason, when I hear this title I think of a teen comedy about a bunch of losers trying to lose their viginity, but failing due to their "virgin state of mind" (this could be because i watch teen comedies to death..). But yeah, that's just my opinion matey.
Page 6 of your script- who is Alexis? You say she sits alone on the bus? But we've never met her before... Maybe its Rory, but you changed her name?
And page 14...Yeah, I'm guessing Rory used to be Alexis.
Yeah, Rory used to be Alexis. I guess i somehow missed that while skimming through for issues. But the problem has been fixed in the new draft i posted for Don to put up.

This is a good script. I can't say much about it. My only suggestion is to add more to Jared. I think it comes just like the guy who did this, someone who only haves sex with girls and one day she leaves one pregnant.
There's a line in the bus sequence near the end, when Rory sees some kids. I think this is terribly overused.
