READERS' RESPONSES TO THE SCRIPT

Archive # 5680 Red Crucible Reader # 8047 for Blue Cat screenplay competition.

I love this writer’s knowledge of the time period about which he writes. Beautifully described ‘small’ moments (one that comes to mind: in the impoverished two-room flat, Lev rises, places his quilt over Hendl and her two children…) as well as effectively illustrated ‘big’ moments (for example, one can practically FEEL the slipping and sliding as the sleigh overturns on page 77) show us what life was like in this time of upheaval.
