Movie Night and Potluck BBQ at my house

  • Jun 25, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Nancy's House

It's come to my attention that many of my dearest screenwriters pals have not seen "Lars and the Real Girl" -a great comedy about one man's delusional relationship with an imaginary girlfriend. Sound familiar? I would love to show it to one and 10 of you at my abode.

 

I'll get burgers for my little grill and the rest of you can bring condiments, chips, dessert, etc. Sound fun? I hope so.

 

Once you RSVP I'll send directions to my house and tell you what to bring -unless you have a special dish you want to contribute.

 

Open to 10 people or more if floor sitting is your thing!

 

PS -if you want to come early there is a pool for a refreshing dip! Just let me know.

    Did anyone pick up a silver serving spoon and serving fork? I brought it with my salad. Thank you to anyone who can help.

    So. This goes to analyzing screenplays. In this movie there were no car crashes, explosions or deaths in the 1st 5 minutes. It was slow to build and develop the characters and relationships. And had lots of characters. I mean lots. And each had a place in the story. Also, no slap the audience in the face turning point. Therefore, when we critique can we get past the need for speed, guts and glory and actually take a look at what the writer is trying to say to the audience? I know I'm going to make more of an effort to do so.

      A simple story simply told. My goal as a writer. Although I love killing off extraneous characters. :-)

    Thank you, Nancy! It was fun and the food was fab.

    Thank you to everyone that came over, brought delicious food, laughed and cried (I heard distinct sniffles -and not just from the women in the room) and then cleaned up my kitchen. Nice after discussion with Xavier and Diane as to how this film addresses mental health and is informing my web scripts through tone. You guys is soooooo awesome. Let's do it again! My hpuse or others- I'm game.

    Well, looks like you have protein. So maybe not a pasta salad with chicken. I'll let you know.

    On another note, if I could get a ride, it would be most appreciated. My little 97 with 211,000+ on it is feeling its age. I'm trying to not drive unless absolutely necessary.

    A family issue came up and I need to be there instead. My loss. Enjoy a burger for me.

  • Rosalind M.

    Nancy, Any chance you can get a copy of the script for us to look at?

    June 24, 2013

  • Nancy M.

    For those who RSVP'd - I just sent you a message with directions. If you didn't get it tell me here and give me your email and I'll send it again

    As for what I'll bring, I have nothing that comes to mind as a special dish. So please feel free to assign me anything reasonable!

    June 15, 2013
