Mike Waters is a fragile young hustler who lives hand-to-mouth in the city of Portland, Oregon. To compound his vulnerability, Mike suffers from the extraordinary condition of narcolepsy and is prone to swoon into sleep at unfortunate moments. At least he has the support of a street-gang of vagabonds, arrayed around the Falstaffian figure of Bog Pigeon. But in this harsh world, Mike's dearest wish is to find his long-lost mother; and in the course of his pilgrimmage he also hopes for a deeper intimacy with his friend Scott Favor, a wealthy scion who is killing time among the hustlers before taking up his birthright.
My Own Private Idaho Paperback edition by Gus Van Sant
His uncle, a keen Thatcherite, offers Omar an entrepreneurial opportunity to revamp a dingy laundrette, and ambitious Omar rolls up his sleeves, enlisting the assistance of his old school-friend Johnny, who has since fallen in with a gang of neo-fascists.
Raised by missionaries, Jimmie Blacksmith, a young half-castle Aboriginal man, is poignantly caught between the ways of his black forefathers and those of the white society to which he aspires. Exploited by his boss and betrayed by his [white] wife, he declares war on his white employers and goes on a violent killing spree.
The goal of Shaping True Story Into Screenplay is to empower screenwriters who are spurred on by personal experience and help them make the leap from cathartic expression to true storytelling. With an encouraging and supportive tone, the book guides its readers towards objectivity about their experience. An autobiographical screenplay must move beyond a self-indulgent re-telling, and so this book...
Presents both the play revealing the Salem witch trials of the late seventeenth century and the problem of guilt by association and the screenplay that the author later wrote to adapt the same material to the medium of film.
