Like all of you, I am interested in continuously learning and unlike most of you, I am new to any aspect of the business side. I have written only one screenplay - an adaptation of W. Somerset Maugham’s short story “Rain,” which features a passionate, determined and powerful South Pacific fundamentalist missionary’s attempt to convert a free-wheeling young woman of questionable repute to Christianity - and the troubling aftermath of the clash. My version is an attempt to capture the uncertainty of motives and commitment to values that were integral to the original written story but not stressed in previous film adaptations.
With the emphasis on character, this version requires versatile, extremely thoughtful and charismatic actors (both male and female).
I would be happy to share it with anyone interested. Comments would also be appreciated.
