There is a certain type of knowledge and understanding about screenwriting you can only get from reading scripts, giving you an innate sense of pace, feel, tone, style, how to approach writing scenes, how create flow, and so forth. So each day this month, I will provide background on and access to a notable movie script.
Today is Day 29 and the featured screenplay is for the movie Gladiator.
Plot summary: With 2 weeks to go before filming, the actors were still complaining of problems with the script. William Nicholson was brought to Shepperton Studios to make Maximus a more sensitive character, reworking his friendship with Juba and developing the afterlife thread.
What I jotted down after reading the script was this character lineup:. Commodus is singleminded in his obsession to become Emperor, to attain that ultimate power.
Maximus is singleminded in his obsession to kill Commodus, to attain that ultimate revenge. Re Attractor: The death of his family resulting in his warrior mode to gain revenge for their deaths; the death of Marcus resulting in his solider mode to try to restore Rome to its ideal state. On a more existential level, he is a Father and a Husband to his family, and we hear him say how much it means to him to return home after two years away at war.
And while a Father-Son relationship can be many things, here the degree of emotion between the two men in their final scene together, plus the passion they both feel for Rome suggests to me their relationship is at its core a Protagonist-Attractor one. Re Mentor: But at every possible overture in the script, he turns away from her. His interest in what she has to say only becomes focused when she is talking about the plan to get rid of Commodus and return Rome to its ideal state.
The fact, as Kevin points out, she provides the actual intelligence and contacts to foment the plan, reinforces the Mentor dynamic in my book.
