In My Life 1969: When The War Is Over

It’s 1969. When Clive and Art return from Vietnam minus their friend Charles they try to re-start their lives but it seems opinions and technology have moved on. Art ends up living in a sexually promiscuous trailer park filled with scantily leather clad girls and Clive shuns society to become a bee loving hippy making daisy chains. When Clive doesn’t show for the re-union of their bowling team Art suspects something might have happened to him and sets off to find out. Meanwhile Arts brother Neil is embroiled in a race to be the first man on the moon with his arch nemesis Buzz Aldren.
M.I.A Charles.

    Not a very well written script. Too conversational, characters weren’t very believable. Historical facts and dates were off. That being said, the concept is good and there might be a decent script in here. You just have to mine it.

    This story was a good concept but lacked in detail and format, not to mention the time line. I wasn’t sure if it was a comedy or drama. The length at 129 pages foretold that it was going to be a long read. With a little cleaning up, this could be a much better story told.

    If you gave this script three stars or more for any of these categories please explain your reason. I’m really curious as to why people think this is good. There is no attention to detail. First and foremost, how were they listening to AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck” in 1969 when the song wasn’t released until 1990? I know it doesn’t matter what song a screenwriter puts into a script, but that’s a huge oversight but a telling one.

    Uhhhh and things of this nature.
