Happy Sunday, guys.  Before we get to the coffee and the content, a reminder that I will be a guest on Scriptchat tonight at 5PM PST.  We'll be talking screenwriting for at least an hour.  You can find all the details on how to join here.

First up, they say that all dialogue should sound natural and specific to that character.  Are there exceptions?  The good people at Now You See It break it down with their Dialogue in Film - How Should Characters Talk? video.

Speaking of rules, they say they are made to be broken (and I agree).  But sometimes creatives lock themselves in a box because that's what some book tells them to do.  Thank god, these filmmakers didn't read the same book (or they set it on fire).  From CineFix comes the Top 10 Favorite Rule Breaking Films.

As always, I ask you to share this content with those you feel would benefit from viewing.  And I welcome your thoughts in the comments section below!
