Edited Screenplays

I’m like you. I love to read produced screenplays and compare them to the actual film. You should read as many screenplays as you can to learn more about this specialized craft.

Alan Ball’s screenplay for American Beauty won an Academy Award in 2000 for Best Original Screenplay. Ball’s screenplay is evocative and compelling.
