and screenplay

Fuck you, you don’t owe it to yourself man, you owe it to me. Cause tomorrow I’m gonna wake up and I’ll be 50, and I’ll still be doing this shit. And that’s all right. That’s fine. I mean, you’re sitting on a winning lottery ticket, and you’re too much of a pussy to cash it in and that’s bullshit. Cause I’d do fucking anything to have what you got. So would any of these fucking guys. It’d be an insult to us if you’re still here in 20 years. Hanging around here is a fucking waste of your time.

Good Will Hunting (1997)

Quick question for you all:

Last year I wrote a feature-length lesbian screenplay which incorporates many subtextual themes much like you’d find in BBC Sherlock. It’s about a closeted college dropout finding her 15 seconds of internet fame after her small role in an independent film went viral and it follows her struggle to gain more work in the Hollywood film industry afterwards. Expected to fit Hollywood’s normal role for a woman, she’s careful not to out herself in the process, but selling her soul becomes exceptionally difficult after she’s hired to work alongside a beautiful bisexual choreographer. My screenplay “Set the Record Straight” includes a fresh perspective of compulsory heterosexuality and the blurred line between female romance and friendship.

No death, no rape, only pining and happy endings. 

Would any of you read it if I published it to Amazon?

Sabrina (1954) dir. Billy Wilder

Your mind has not been on the cooking. Your mind has been elsewhere. You’re in love. And I will venture to go a step further — you’re unhappily in love. Does it show? Very clearly.
