Logline: 
A Student teaches. A Teacher learns. A plastic knife cuts good.
Synopsis/Details: 

A young man’s focus on TEACHING is blurred –
juggling grad school, money woes, and a new marriage.

His wealthy IN-LAWS care more about their daughter’s fiscal well-being than her genuine happiness, and hold little regard for virtuous vocations.

A middle-aged simpleton, the sole STUDENT in tonight’s Adult Special Ed Class, possesses the one true key to finding bliss... secret for a good life...

— spread the jelly

———

Student takes Teacher on an illuminating Dickensian Adventure... touching others too , along the way.

— unlikely Friends, unusual Flights of Fancy, and a wee bit of Festivus Fun.

———

MESSY, misleading, mythical, magical,
Rambling and random, restless and runic.
Sinister, saccharine, slapstick and SCREWBALL,
Cryptic, cohesive, conjured, capricious.....

Delightful, disturbing, deceptive, DELISH.

———

And the Jelly Donut? A tasty MacGuffin.

Attached Talent: 

Dream Talent —

Tom Hanks as Father-in-Law (and his Playtone Pictures as Producer),
Madonna as Waitress,
Doug Jones as Morey,
me as Bobby.

All Accolades & Coverage: 

A Screenplay that takes liberties. There are PHOTOS and LINKS, POEMS and PLAYFUL FONTS... SCANDALOUS.

Like watching a FILM ALREADY MADE. Or reading a POP-UP BOOK.
A Celebration of the 80’s and today. And so much more...

The Writer: Johnny Francis Wolf

Autistic Poet writes a SCRIPT... Sometimes-Actor jacks it up with ON THE JOB EXPERIENCE... Day-job Artist inserts a plethora of PRETTY PICTURES... Whacky Music Lover adds way too many SONGS... OCD Victim scribes such interesting ASIDES... All these things. Me. ——— Ranch Hand working in the desert, 3 hours north of Los Angeles... Intermittent Textile Designer (idiot savant with plaids). Starred in one Indie Film... TWO FRONT TEETH - scary Christmas comedy... Wonderful, horrible, acting tour de force. Somewhere on Amazon and/or Netflix (excellent stocking stuffer). Poetry and writing are new to me (within the past 5 or so years). JELLY DONUTS is my first Screenplay. For a taste of the music... Go to bio
