Synopsis:Ben never knows the right words to say. One day he wishes he could speak like a poet at a wishing well. The next day he gets his wish. But now everything he says rhymes. Rather than helping, the rhymes ruin his life. No one understands why he talks like that. Now he must go on a journey to find a way to end the curse.
I changed a lot of moments that weren't working too well. Added some reaction shots, and cut a lot of the looks between Ben and Silvia. Also fixed some of the sound issues. See the project forum for notes on the ending.
This is the script for my next test movie. I would love to hear feedback before I go shoot it in September. This script started as a high concept comedy and ended up becoming an exploration of an artist finding his voice.
SPOILER ALERT! This is the ending I originally shot, but cut in editing. I decided to upload it here to see what people think, since there has been much discussion about the ending. Let me know how you feel about this one.
