'All Is Lost' & 'Mud' Screenplays Available For Your Consideration

All is Lost screenplayToday, we have two very different scripts. One is only 31 pages long, featuring one man adrift at sea, using all of his resourcefulness to stay alive, although his outcome looks bleak. The other script runs 126 pages, featuring a man who can't stop talking about his philosophies and potential tall tales, convincing a boy and his friend to help this man elude bounty hunters to reunite with his love. Both are excellent examples of screenwriting. Thanks to Roadside Attractions, we present the screenplays for All Is Lost and Mud.

Writer/director J.C. Chandor pulls off a 180-degree turn from the excellent, dialogue-driven Margin Call to an almost dialogue-free script for All Is Lost, now playing in U.S. theatres. Here's the trailer:

One of my favorite films of the years, writer/director Jeff Nichols' third feature film Mud provides a unique tale about first love told through the eyes of a 14-year-old boy yearning for answers, ready to follow a charismatic outlaw and help him evade his enemies to reunite with his true love. Here's the trailer:
