Shore scripts coverage


There is no question Irena Sendler’s story would make a compelling movie. It is surprising this story has never been told as a feature film, and because this is a story with a strong female lead and a positive message,
there is certainly a possibility that it will eventually get made.


Your script in particular has a lot going for it. You have painstakingly retold the details of Irena’s heroic acts, setting them within the context of the brutal treatment of the Jews by the Nazis during WWII, and you have used
the framework of Irena’s friendship with Rachel as a way of humanizing this story, and thus making it more accessible to your audience. You have included many specific elements of Irena’s life, including a complicated
relationship with her husband, who is initially unsupportive of her efforts, but thankfully realizes what a hero he is married to. Most pointedly, you have depicted the Nazis as horrific villains, and Stefan as a character that
makes a complete change throughout the movie, and this will be fascinating for audiences to witness.


Character
The success or failure of this screenplay will be based on whether your reader, and then your audience, can connect with Irena and is able to experience her heroic journey along with her, and feel a sense of accomplishment as she reaches her goals. You have been pretty successful here in illustrating the character of Irena.

 

The character of Stefan is an equally fascinating character, especially because he goes from SS Officer to helping Irena escape death in the course of this movie.


Marketability

It will always be tough to market a period piece, but WWII movies have always somehow still found rapt audiences. Also, you have in Irena’s story a strong female protagonist, and a true tale of perseverance and victory
over almost insurmountable odds. This is a powerful, true accounting of a life that deserves to be remembered. For that reason this movie might find a buyer and an audience fascinated by this remarkable woman.

 

Conclusion
A true story that sounds like a made-up story is always a good basis for a feature film. And there have been few films about WWII that portray a woman heroine, no less a woman as formidable as Irena Sendler. So there
is no doubt this would make a compelling film.

 

You seem to have a good grasp of details about Irena’s life that have likely

The closest film we can compare Sendler's Children to is Schindler's list. The story is very similar except for the important part that Sendler is a female protagonist. 

There haven't been many female driven holocaust movies. Even Zookeeper's Wife's story revolves around a couple and not a woman lead. The only similar movie with a female lead is Sophie's Choice. 

Schindler's List grossed $96 Million domestic and $321 Million world wide, Zookeeper's Wife $20 Million while Sophie's Choice $30 Million (in 1982)

There is definitely a need for a female driven based on a true story holocaust feature.

The proposal seeks financing for our film which is budgeted at $20 million US dollars. As a story, it will appeal to a wide demographic of consumers from young and to particularly the mature movie going audience.
