It’s screenplay season — that special time of year when Hollywood’s PR armies unleash a volley of film scripts across the Internet in hopes that Academy voters (and other awards-season pundits) will page through them to get insight on how some of the most acclaimed films of the year were originally conceived by their screenwriters. More than mere transcriptions of dialogue and scene descriptions, screenplays are the blueprints that film crews work from when planning shots and sequences, and studying them can shed unexpected light on a project’s journey from script to screen. What’s more, they’re free, for a limited time only — so you may as well take advantage.
