hnnnnnggggg - feel free to ignore me, just ranting about the (simplified) plot of my screenplay
My dissertation is being such a bitch right now
And hell, this is never going to be made, so I might as well explain it to some degree (leaving out the explosions and the gang warfare and the murder mystery aspect, of course)
Man, I just wanted to write about lesbians in the 1920s and address the fact that time travel narratives only ever have straight men going back in time and having essentially the same social status and privilege in society and man, wouldn’t it suck if you were a PoC or a woman or gay?
Plus, time travel films always seem to give the traveler the chance to go home or, if they stay, it’s their decision to stay - wouldn’t it suck if you were trapped in another time forever and you had to completely readjust your life and the privileges you might have been taking for granted and then you have to live through shitty events that you know are coming but you have no chance of changing or stopping them?
After my film is over, Jules doesn’t get to go home - she has to live through the fucking Great Depression and WWII and the McCarthy Era and hell, that’s provided that she isn’t one of the 700+ gang war casualties that happen in the Chicago area before Prohibition is over in 1933
Oh, and the woman she loves dies
Man, I feel like such an asshole
and now I have to go write a montage. :/ As much as I love my concept, fuuuck thiiiiis.
