This is your chance to discuss the week’s amateur scripts, offered originally in the Scriptshadow newsletter. The primary goal for this discussion is to find out which script(s) is the best candidate for a future Amateur Friday review. The secondary goal is to keep things positive in the comments with constructive criticism.
Below are the scripts up for review, along with the download links. Want to receive the scripts early? Head over to the Contact page, e-mail us, and “Opt In” to the newsletter.

WHY YOU SHOULD READ (from writer): “I’m a 22 year old screenwriter who has been writing scripts since I was 13 — started with pen and paper. I’ve had three shorts produced, the latest just screened at the Cannes film festival in France,and I’ve had one feature optioned. So why am I here? I love your opinions, and this a script I’ve had offers on, but could never come to an agreement.”
