Feature Screenplays

My Friend Dmitri

When a never before published Anton Chekhov play is discovered by a young director, assassins and interested parties come out of the woodwork to steal the precious work of art (comedy thriller).

(Sundance Screenwriting Lab 2nd round 2015 // Austin Film Festival 2nd round 2018)

The complex plot and various intersecting storylines in this screenplay are the material’s biggest strength and the writer should be commended for engineering a complicated story and executing it with simplicity and clarity. The reader is never confused by the interwoven love triangles and multiple agendas. This is no mean feat considering the number of characters in this cast. While the screenplay boasts a relatively low concept, the reader can’t help but get caught up in the humor and fun of this light romp. It should also be said that this piece ends with a lot of satisfaction and the twist is brought off with a lot of subtlety and surprise, thereby ending the movie on a promising note.”
