ZERO DARK THIRTY meets MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE

Why Read It?

A script that stands out in its sub-genre of 'town versus corporation' dramas with a combination of amazing characters and great writing that never loses track of the visual aspects of the story. The townspeople are easy to root for, the villains are easy to hate, and the town is so lovable that the film's inspiring climax reaches the transcendence usually reserved for stories with a much larger breadth. The stakes are high and the dueling politicians at the story's center provide endless entertaining conflict.
