Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

How would you describe this script in two words?
What movie have you seen the most times in your life?
It’s line-ball between Casablanca, The Searchers, and Some Like It Hot.
How long have you been working on this screenplay?
A couple of years and then some.
How many stories have you written?
15 of my own and 10 with co-creators.
What motivated you to write this screenplay?
I was inspired by feature films Venus and The Sea Inside, as well as by Dennis Potter’s ground-breaking television mini-series The Singing Detective.
What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?
Ensuring the characters’ truths trumped my temptation to plot as outrageously as they behaved.
Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?
Directing, riding motorcycles and (attempting) being in the Now.
What motivated you to submit to the festival?
Hearing others’ interpretations and delivery of your words is always beneficial. The feedback prompted me to listen to an inner voice offering the same advice … which I’d been trying to ignore!
