The Screenwriters (Film)
Hollywood, 1940s. Stewart Harvey (Jeff Rose) is a washed-up screenwriter with one last chance to save his career. The catch: he has to partner with the young, eager Chip Leninskovich (Jason Burkey) to write a feature script in twenty-four hours. As the clock ticks, ideals clash and secrets are revealed in a story of friendship, swell dialog, and great endings!
Also starring Jenn Gotzon (God's Country, Frost & Nixon), Rich Swingle (Providence), and an award-winning musical score, THE SCREENWRITERS is a classic black-and-white love note to Hollywood's Golden Age and its writers.
