An Award-Winning Screenplay
by Patricia Burroughs
$2.50 (Screenplay) ISBN 978-1-61138-314-0
This script is being offered for those people who want to see what a Nicholl Fellowship*-winning script in 2001 looked like and for those who want to compare it to the novel that inspired it, La Desperada.
The screenwriting book, Adapting Your Novel into an Award-Winning Script (And Why You Don’t Want To, A Cautionary Tale), also by Patricia Burroughs, heavily references this script and the source novel. So for those who want to really dig in and compare the two, here is the script you’ve been asking for to go with La Desperada, which has been available for several years.
* The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science’s Don and Gee Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting is an international screenwriting competition established to identify and encourage talented new screenwriters. Up to five $35,000 Fellowships are awarded annually. There were 5,489 entries the year Patricia won the Fellowship with this script, and 4,250 entries the previous year, when she was a Finalist. She is the only screenwriter in the history of the competition who achieved Finalist status with two different scripts.
