One True Love – Short Script Review (Optioned!) - posted by KP Mackie

One True Love

” Two witches wonder if they will ever find the men who will fulfill their destinies and grant them eternal youth.”

Love stories – it’s a genre that’s surprisingly complex. Couples’ personalities vary, of course. Their psyches. Their circumstance. Then there’s the emotion of love itself – impossible to categorize. At times, love’s stormy, tragic or wistful. Other times – sweet and dreamy. But above all else, no matter the tale, Love is simply magic…

Especially in William Boehmer’s award-winning short, One True Love.

You see, Esther and Vivian are witches. Both in their seventies, the two have been Bosom Buddies for years. Through thick and thin, and far too many wrinkles. Recently the septugarians have been on a search for the final ingredient in a spell that will revive their long-lost youth: the kiss of “One True Love”.

Sadly, that’s easier said than done. Especially in these modern times.

The two go about their quest differently. Able to (temporarily) look young and beautiful, Vivian frequents bars – enjoying the company of multiple men. Esther combs the neighborhood one guy at a time. But neither crone has had success.

The men are dropping – literally passing out – at their feet!

Consoled by Vivian, a frustrated Esther hatches a plan. Maybe she’s been doing things wrong. Why hit on just young men? Perhaps maturity has it’s benefits…

Appearing for once as her true self, a seventy year old Esther targets old man Theo in the park. Bewitching him with her charms, she leans in for the kill (uh, we mean “kiss.”). But with this latest man be her Prince? Or just the last frog in a line of failures…?

Clever and comedic, OTL’s an easy story to film. A sweet script with an unexpected twist. A timeless tale of searching for love – that begins and ends with a kiss.

Pages: 6

William,

I like your script.

An area that I thought was a bit, dull, so to speak, was the ending. While interesting, it was a bit, predictable, so to speak.

I would love to see this filmed. Sometimes, a visual interpretation helps!

I wish you luck!

Kyle.
