Script: The Kids Are All Right

 

Here’s the Oscar-nominated script for The Kids Are All Right. This script is penned by Lisa Cholodenko and Stuart Blumberg. Haven’t read it yet, so can’t say too much about it. I’d assume it would be a good read for anyone writing a family flic or a quirky indie comedy.

Free Online Master Class: Charlie Kaufman

I know he’s not exactly everyone’s cup of tea, but I think Charlie Kaufman is an absolute genius. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Adaptation, Being John Malcovich — all brilliant.

Charlie Kaufman is also the reason why my first three screenplays totally sucked — I wanted to be cool like him and break all the rules. But like any great screenwriter, the reason Charlie is able to break the rules is because he knows what they are.

Check out this awesome 72-minute master class that Charlie gave at the Göteborg Film Festival:
