Thanks! I liked this one myself and it had a bidding war going on early on. Since then, several filmmakers have intended to make it, but their budgets have always been too large due to it really needs great actors to pull it off. Especially the girl. It recently came back to me after what, two years or so. Don was nice enough to put it on the home page again...voila!  We'll see how it'll turnout this time.

Thanks guys!

Here's an idea if Don sees it. How about having a like button we can click on, like FB? That way we can acknowledge someones comments without bumping the thread to the top of the portal.

Pia,
So glad this was picked up, not only because it deserves to be -- and I'd love to see it -- but because this meant the script was reposted and I got to read it for the first time.
Very well done. I kept putting myself in Nico's place, wondering "What would I do?" I think I would have left the car right away and called the cops. But I'm not sure I would have had the presence of mind to think of that.
Anyway, props to you.

Henry

P.S. The condom-shopping scene reminds of a story I'll tell on myself. Many years ago, I went to the drug store to buy condoms. My young son asked, "Where you going, Daddy?"
"The drug store."
"Can I go?"
"Ahhh... not this time
"Well, will you buy me a Superman comic book?"
So I found myself at the checkout counter with a box of condoms and a Superman comic book. Needless to say, I didn't make eye contact with anyone.

Thanks for reading Henry. Glad you liked it. A lot of people did. One of the few scripts I've written that wasn't all murder and mayhem, lol.

Funny about your story there! I think we've all been there.

I know. Again...

This filmmaker feels that this is too timely not to film.

Let's hope something comes of it.

Terrific, Pia! I noticed the review on the blog page.

Deffo a favourite of mine. Very clever. I hope the filmmakers do justice to the script.  No pun intended.

Fuck yeah! It's a powerful script! And, unfortunately, all too familiar and frightening. This NEEDS to get made.

Quoted from LC
Terrific, Pia! I noticed the review on the blog page.

I actually did not notice that until you mentioned it. I check the home page first thing every morning, but did not see it then. It's possible that's how he found it. Like I've always said, the SS home page is the premier real estate for script exposure.

Very possible your review helped draw attention to it.
