JEREMY cover image
For the record, it is difficult to give this screenplay a strict rating. I give the author credit for the characters and the initial concept. This script addresses how a young boy is introduced to bullying, Biblical readings in school and making friends. He finds support from his Bible reading and church active parents. With his new friend he learns about the Native American culture. Her grandfather gives Jeremy his animal name and tells of his personal acceptance of God as the one that allows his visions. Jeremy comes to terms with the bully and these lessons as the story progresses to the final scene. The grandfather is dying, yet expresses that he 'has overcome the world.' This screenplay seems written within its Biblical context, with the author's voice teaching children how best to cope with society in its last days. I give this 3 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 to 12, plus adults. Reviewed by Juror #11.

Jeremy truly wants to do the right thing and stand up for what he believes in even if it means being tormented by the biggest bullies in school. But with the help of his new friend, Margaret, and her Native American Grandfather, he soon learns that bravery and courage can make a superhero out of anyone - even a third grader.
