Hi to All,
Not so long time ago there was a post on here about David Lynch being a not so good screenwriter (he is a great filmmaker though). This inspired me to think of what kind of a screenplay I, as a screenwriter, would regard as a good one? I looked around and found one that I believe is a perfect example of a great screenplay - please note that I refer to screenwriting skills and talents, not movie making skills. This screenplay is The Beauty and The Beast (2017) by Stephen Chbosky and Evan Spiliotopoulos. It was a great pleasure to read the screenplay because it read as if it was a movie already – very cinematographic and visual. Beautiful writing too. Here is the link to the screenplay https://www.scriptslug.com/assets/uploads/scripts/beauty-and-the-beast-2...
And what is your favourite screenplay – NOT a MOVIE but a SCREENPLAY?
PS by the way, the movie that was made based on the screenplay is also fantastic!
