"Whisker on Pine" adapted from the novel of the same name written by Larry Hand
Set in a sleepy rural Georgia town in August 1960, this romantic, "coming of age" script shows that things are rarely what they seem on the surface. While an 18 year old white teenager learns about life, he also learns about love, fear, bigotry and hope. Standing up for what is right, not what is popular, sets him apart but ultimately earns the respect of much of a small town facing integration, a war in Southeast Asia and changes that parallel what this boy is about to face himself. A surprisingly warm and friendly screenplay with a totally non-predictable and very unconventional feel-good ending. The sentiments here make for a fun, humorous, touching screenplay that would make a good coming-of-age teen movie. 120 pages
