The Adjustment Bureau

Before posting my next tip, I wanted to take a moment to recommend the movie “The Adjustment Bureau.” Based on the novel by Philip K. Dick, this script (adapted and directed by George Nolfi) is an excellent example of how to structure a screenplay and how to use early scenes to set up the action to follow. There were a handful of things that I didn't like about the script (the closing voiceover leaps to mind), but overall the screenplay is so well done that it’s very much worth the price of admission.
