I had the opportunity to watch The Missing Screenwriter (private screening) , and I was really impressed. All the elements used helped to build an captivating story. The surprise was one of the elements that helped to make this story so interesting and fascinating. While watching, I had no idea what would happen next. It is exactly this fact that makes a production of a movie successful. After all, people want to see something new, different. Again, the surprise is an element that makes all the difference in this story. Besides it, I found it really fun. I also could observe the behavior of the characters. It is a well developed story, the mystery is also an important element of the story. It makes us reflect about our own imagination. After all, in our routine we see people speculating a lot, and we wonder where begins the truth and where it becomes only a mirror of our own fears. It is really worthy watching!
