    Dnf page 106I really didn t like this book I haven t seen the movie and have no plans to, so I really don t care I watched the trailer and it doesn t seem like a movie I would want to watch I ve only read a screenplay one other time, and at that time I had watched the movie first so I actually enjoyed reading it.I have to say that my aunt s young adult lit class had a sucky reading list She took it at a different college from me and gave me most of the books when she was done The only one I Dnf page 106I really didn t like this book I haven t seen the movie and have no plans to, so I really don t care I watched the trailer and it doesn t seem like a movie I would want to watch I ve only read a screenplay one other time, and at that time I had watched the movie first so I actually enjoyed reading it.I have to say that my aunt s young adult lit class had a sucky reading list She took it at a different college from me and gave me most of the books when she was done The only one I ve actually liked is The Hate U Give I didn t like Lisa from the start I get that what she witnessed affected her, but even the brief interactions we saw before that she was acting really bratty With the screenplay, we don t really get her reactions and internal thoughts about everything Maybe this would be clear in the film, but in the screenplay we don t get to see it, and I feel like I need to understand that if she is to be a likeable character I almost feel like the whole thing isn t even about the accident, because it is barely mentioned after that in the section I read I did take a peek at the final pages and it was about something completely different Reading the dialogue in this form, it seemed really cheesy and cringey Maybe the film has great cinematography, but I don t think the dialogue alone would carry it It s not really poetic or well written Maybe hearing it in the film would be different, but reading it in my head I just can t really imagine it being that serious, even during the scene when the accident occurs

    Wanted to read it after i saw it extended edition and liked it Lonergan really writes like that Choreographed crosstalk I would worry that reading this was an empty exercise because I have already seen the film but reading scenes between Joan and Ramon helped me understand why they were in the film, which I may have missed in watching.We are all talking past one another, but sometimes we stop.


  4. Lisa King Lisa King says:

    Margaret deals with a very sensitive issue It brings up ethical and moral questions Lisa is a girl who seems to desperately be searching for just one adult in her life who will act like an adult She needs guidance and is seeking it from anyone over the age of twenty This screenplay deals with important subject matter in a unique way.To watch it in its entirety you will need the extended version.


  5. Dan Young Dan Young says:

    2.5 out of 5 stars.I think a quote from the screenplay itself sums it up best Now that they all read how great it is, we get these big standing ovations every night, and it s the exact same show as before it s a wonderful performance No, it s not it s just the audience reacts differently if they ve been told it s good.

    Absolute genius

    I never read a screenplay before and while it was interesting, it definitely is not the same as reading a book I missed being able to read what the characters were feeling and thinking.
