Excerpt taken from Mission Statement of “Hollywood Screenplay Treatment” about the book “From My Lips To God’s Ears” by Screenplay writer Dee Smith:
“From My Lips to God’s Ears” tells the story of one woman’s journey as she deals with the devastating emotional, personal, and social effects of rape. It takes a look at big themes like forgiveness, honesty, regret, and love and filters them all through the experiences of its main character Liz, a young woman who is coming of age.
The novel is written as both a biographical narrative and an emotional exploration of the event and ensuing years and experiences. It is very effective for painting a portrait of Liz’s mental state and gives a clear character for the reader to follow…
Overall, “From My Lips to God’s Ears” is a very effective book. Any and all changes in the treatment have been made in order to take advantage of the tools and techniques unique to cinema as well as to lend clarity to the overall story goals. The end result is a story that adheres to the rigid requirements of a film narrative while retaining the theme, plotting, and intent of the source material!
A young woman navigates the difficult landscape of healing and forgiveness after her boyfriend’s best friend rapes her.
