The Book of Henry by Gregg Hurwitz | #16

Oh man, here we go...

This week on The Book of Screenplay Club, er, Screenplay Book Club, we take a light-hearted break of form to discuss the entirely bonkers screenplay for The Book of Henry by Gregg Hurwitz.

Things to Consider:

  1. How would you classify this movie in a genre?
  2. Is Henry a likable protagonist? Does he need to be? Is he even the protagonist?
  3. What did you feel towards the “heroes” of the script?
  4. What even is this movie?
