The Model Builder (Manuscript)
Ten-year-old Andy wants to build and fly model airplanes. His father, John Kirkland, remains grounded in his fear from the past, and does his best to discourage his son. It appears that the father’s past will block Andy’s future. The film is set in rural Indiana in 1946, during a time of changes.
This movie script is a great story of a child being persistent in his dreams. Despite strong opposition from his father, young Andy Kirkland never gives up. The writing for this film is very good; there were some twists toward the end that I didn’t foresee. There are many scenes which I feel have much potential to be unforgettable. Also, there is a lot of good information regarding model airplanes, including stuff which a non-enthusiast would enjoy.
This movie script is Dove approved but recommended for ages 12 and up. There are scenes which may bother small children, such as a plane crash where a man dies, and an automobile accident where a man is injured. Included is a scene in which a man is drinking and driving, but he suffers the consequences of wrecking the vehicle. I think this movie, once produced, will be very entertaining, especially for families.
