Facebook: When ordinary becomes extraordinary
A romantic comedy by Heather Grace Stewart


Note from the author: Never read a screenplay before? Why not give it a try? It moves faster than a novel, and allows you to picture the characters up on screen. As a poet, I find screenwriting contains a lot of the most beautiful elements of poetry. I hope you enjoy this read, my first published screenplay!


Struggling writer Jessica Page wants more out of her life in the Jersey City suburbs. She wants to be more. She wants someone to notice her. Not as the overtired, worn-out mommy she sees in the mirror every day, but as the sexy, exciting, woman she knows she can be. She and her husband Brian barely have a private moment anymore with three children vying for their attention. When Brian refuses to take Jessica on as a client with his literary agency, it’s the last straw. Feeling bored and alone, she logs onto Facebook and joins a celebrity’s discussion board, Jack Venture's Hollywood Talk. There, she meets some witty, outgoing people, including People Magazine’s most recent Sexiest Man Alive, actor and producer Jack Venture. Jessica and her older sister Jenny make unlikely friendships with board members Alexis, a young, aspiring actress living in Manhattan, and Frank, a middle-aged business man whose wife has been hospitalized for six months. Their ride together –one of friendship, laughter, and self-discovery—ends in some unique twists. It’s a journey that reminds us real life isn’t like the movies. If we’re brave enough to take a leap of faith, we can get movie moments…every now and then.

Market
Men and women 18-34. It’s a chick flick --with themes on the challenges of balancing marriage, motherhood and career-- but since it’s also about making friends on the Internet, and love and family, men will “get it” in many ways. A date movie for all seasons.

Referrals
Actor Mark Feuerstein (Royal Pains -USA Network, What Women Want), praised my script for being honest, truthful, funny and smart, with an accessible story line and characters the audience will relate to.

WILDSOUND Screenplay Festival (Toronto) called it “An inspiring story. Innovative and witty.”

Actress Forbes Riley, “I loved it. Sensitive, insightful and funny! Let me know when we get to do the reading!”

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful! Nov. 29 2013
By itsjustus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
What a delightful gem - I'm so glad I discovered this screenplay! The story is full of highly relatable characters, laugh-out-loud humor, touching emotional scenes, and even a fun plot twist I didn't see coming.

The main character, Jessica, is a mom of three and a writer, just like I am; how could I not relate to that? An author's life can indeed be lonely, so Jessica goes online to find support/companionship/advice/etc. Even though she hasn't met her online friends in person, oftentimes they provide better moral support and camaraderie than the people she does see in person. When one of her online friends faces a personal tragedy, the group arranges a face-to-face meeting for the first time. The touching descriptions that follow are so heartfelt and superbly done. It's also wonderful to witness Jessica coming out of her shell and truly expressing herself.

Overall, The Friends I've Never Met really resonated with me. It was an easy and entertaining read, and if you've never read a screenplay the way you would a novel, I highly recommend you start with this one - you'll be glad you did!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to say I was hesitant about reading a screenplay, but once I started to read it I just couldn't put it down! I really liked how they helped each other during difficult times each character was going through. How they were there for one another. This is a very good, well written screenplay!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes! You can make friends on the Internet. Nov. 23 2012
By Larry H. Leitner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This screenplay is a story of a group of people who meet in an internet chat room and become very close friends. It follows the group member through all of their own lives and some of the problems that crop up to bring us down and how these friends, many of them had never met in person, can come together to bring each other back up. The passing of the spouse of one of the friends serves as a catalyst to bring them all together. I like the use of a device where she calls for a split screen of all the friends at their laptops and it fades into all of them sitting together in a living room just talking as if they were transported from where they happen to be to be all in one place. This should make for an enjoyable film. Can't wait to see it.
