I just thought I'd repost this article in order to give the world the complete roundtable discussion of The Senator’s Wife, which was written by the very talented Katherine Fugate.
I’d like to thank our good friend Christina Ferguson for not only her contribution and partnership in keeping the Script Club alive but also her suggestion of The Senator’s Wife. Mine was Charlie Kaufman’s Synecdoche, NY, and yeah, that would’ve been a disaster.
Second, I want to define to the world exactly what we’re doing here. This is like a Book Club. It’s not meant to be anything. It’s not meant to influence anything. It’s not meant to be an early review of an unfinished work or any kind of indicator about how good or bad a movie may be before it’s even released. This is just a discussion by screenwriters (for the consumption of other screenwriters) about one version of one draft, which just gives us the chance to talk about the craft. That’s it. And while the script is not available for download, I think we can all still get something out of this discussion.
So without further adieu, on with the reviews, which were so insightful.
Hope you enjoy them.
