Stanley Tucci Tobit Writer

PREMISE: Tobit is an observant Dutch Jew living in Amsterdam. He lives correctly, giving alms and burying the dead. In spite of his good works, Tobit is struck blind. Concurrent with Tobit’s story is that of Sarah, daughter of one of Tobit’s distant relative, whose seven successive husbands are each killed by a demon on their wedding night. When Tobit and Sarah pray to God for deliverance, God sends the angel Raphael to act as intercessor. Tobit regains his sight, and Sarah marries Tobit’s son Tobias. The story closes with Tobit’s thanksgiving and an account of his death. This is actually a Jewish short story possibly dating from Persian times in some Bibles is the book of Tobit, named after the father of its hero.

Finally, ask yourself what your hero learns from all this—and show this to us rather than preach it.

Next make sure that you don’t fall into the disappointing trap of Jurassic Park, where “confrontation” is too much like what went before it. You have better models to follow, where there is indeed a sense of new and extraordinary action being introduced in the story’s closing sweep.

As you prepare to write your own Act Three, first see if you can create the sense of a ticking clock. If you can, this will greatly help the line of suspense as your hero moves into confrontation with the antagonist.

Because its opposite is the one cardinal sin in screenwriting: to be boring.

Even quieter, softer movies have narrative drive, an order of events that makes us want to know what happens next. Keep this focus central as you write your screenplay.

And yet: “I couldn’t put it down,” my agent told me. “It’s a real page turner.”

My screenplay A Woman Scorned, for example, has enthusiastic agent representation even though it is a risky, controversial story whose main character is a child molester. This “hero” makes it a difficult, if not impossible, sell.
