Benny and Joon Here is a film about someone with a mental illness that is a little more honest than two we have seen recently, those being Silver Linings Playbook and King of California. Both those movies annoyed me, as I was expected to somehow go along with the fanatical self-centeredness of the main characters. Here, Mary Stuart Masterson is a schizophrenic living at home with her long-suffering brother, Aiden Quinn.
When writing coverage, you want to focus on main issues, strengths or weaknesses of the script. You write a synopsis 1.
The comments include your opening paragraph, a paragraph on plot, on characterization, on dialoge not a must and a summary. Did the protagonist's arc exist? Were the characters too flat? Too cute rather than dramatic? Not funny if comedy? Not witty or funny if comedy?
Don't forget to write your final paragraph. Here's my script coverage for Benny and Joon the script is very different than the movie, especially the character of Sam Johnny Depp which was my biggest problem there. Everybody's waiting for his word — the delivery man, a customer, and ERIC, his employee and friend.
Benny is on top of it.
Before he enters the house he meets MRS. Benny begs her to stay, but her mind is set.
Benny calls Eric, to tell him he can't come to their poker evening because June can't be left alone. We understand June has a pyromania issue, and that Benny doesn't want her to be left alone in the house.
They decide June will come with Benny. During dinner peanut butter with celery for June, pasta for Benny Benny asks June what happened with Mrs. June, fluent with words, says she left the house alone and that she met people.
Benny doesn't take this easily, saying it's dangerous for her. He tells her she joins him for poker.
Later, at Eric's, Benny and the guys are playing cards "for keeps": Benny meets with Garvey, June's doctor.
Benny is looking for a new housekeeper for June, and Garvey tells him to consider a group home. Benny refuses, saying he's June's family and they should stay together. Garvey takes Benny to the group home to see how it is. The home is a good place for the schizophrenics, as we learn June is.
Even one of the managers is schizophrenic. When Benny's on his way back home, he finds June in the middle of the road, with a cop questioning her for making a commotion on the road, wearing the snorkel mask Benny won in poker. Benny talks to the cop and June is saved.
Benny asks his poker friend THOMAS, who works in the psychiatric hospital, to help him find a housekeeper, but this leads to no result.
