THRILLER 1st Scene Script – FORTY WINKS, by Mitch Moldofsky

Genre: Thriller, Mystery

A near-future dream expert with dream-reading technology, known professionally for her stance that “dreams mean nothing”, freaks when her husband’s dreams reveal an affair and a murder–hers.

CAST LIST:

Judge: Charles Gordon
Jazz Singer: Carina Cojeen
Narrator: Ida Jagaric
Pros. Attorney: Rob Notman
Greg: Sean C. Dwyer
Det. Morgan: Jarod Terrell
Carol: Kerrie Lamb

Get to know the writer: 

 1. What is your screenplay about?

Forty winks is about the struggle between knowledge and fear, belief and self-doubt. The main character is a scientist, supposedly unemotionally committed to conclusions drawn from years of research, her life’s work. But when this commitment comes into conflict with her beliefs about herself, her marriage and by extension her sense of self worth, it falters, because of a deep and very human insecurity, the possibility or “what if” that she is wrong, that she is unworthy, that she is unloved.

2. What genres does your screenplay fall under?

It’s an erotic thriller and a mystery-drama, but the tension beneath the surface is often superseded by the comedy of life.

3. Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

It’s exciting and really intriguing with the angle of looking into dreams, the realistic nature of their representation (random, mundane, absurd, frightening), the macabre turn they take in terms of adultery and murder, and the whodunit guessing game between multiple characters.

4. How would you describe this script in two words?

Waking Nightmare

5. What movie have you seen the most times in your life?

Sunset Boulevard

6. How long have you been working on this screenplay?

A year

7. How many stories have you written?

Dozens

8. What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life?)

You Send Me

9. What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?
Getting the third act right

10. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Women’s rights

11. You entered your screenplay via FilmFreeway. What has been your experiences working with the submission platform site?

Fine

12. What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?

I like readings. I thought the reader misunderstood my intentions a little.
