Genre: Drama-comedy, thriller, coming of age.
Feedback: “Turn the Tide is like some sort of surrealistic fever dream; it tackles highly current events while being a timeless coming of age story, while also being a journey of revenge and repentance. What’s so interesting about this script is that it has the frenetic energy of someone telling you an outrageous story while also taking the time to highlight the setting and vibe of the city around the characters. It’s reminiscent of a Harmony Korine film in the sense that it’s a funhouse mirror for a world that a lot of Americans choose to ignore”. – Blue Cat Screenplay competition feedback.
