"Your writing is witty and sharp and vivid. Economy with words moves your multi-layered plot forward with momentum, so much so that I found myself unable to put it down." (Richard Walter, Former UCLA Screenwriting Chairman)
"This seems to have a SHAWSHANK appeal to it and I like the layers of prison, real life, and revenge. This is a well thought out, detailed script that I enjoyed reading. The hardboiled language gives the script an almost noir tone that is compelling and motivates the pace of the film.” - Rachel Swearingen of FilmRise Distribution
