Very well written.  Amazing!
Is this being produced yet?  Or have you just finished it?
And is there anypart in particular you want over analized?  Aside from a few spelling errors?

The end flashback bothered me. But after walking away from it, I think I like it in there.
I did feel a few scenes ended early...but you got in, got out and the point is clear.
(I hope I can learn from this)
all in all, good job Matt.

I’m very happy you enjoyed it. I can never seem to avoid annoying little typos, no matter how many times I edit one of my scripts.

I received coverage that suggested I overstayed my welcome by the end, but I had a clear motivation for that final flashback: I was simply trying to display the humanity of the characters, how that togetherness can be destroyed by violence.  

Thank you for reading, and I know I have to get around to reviewing other people’s scripts around here.  

As for it being optioned or in production… not yet, not yet… but hopefully soon. Got to have faith, man.

I've only read the first ten pages, but I really like it so far. Great believable dialogue, and the formatting is correct.

I'm gonna finish reading this and give more comments after I've finished.

Matt hasn't been on these boards in a year and a half, RBotha.  He won't get your comments.
