Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Letitia Wright’s “Dumbass”
Will Hollywood be a Reason for Change in the Injustice against Men and Women Prisoners?
19th March 2021 – An upcoming movie depicting the injustice that men and women had to endure in the state penitentiaries in Texas has been inundated with calls from more than 2000 women urging the production company owned by Hollywood actor, producer and director Letitia Wright and Adam Sandler, to stick to the real issues behind the Texas Judicial system. A petition was signed by many people that include attorneys, university professors, politicians and family members of the many men and women that are suffering in the state penitentiaries. The idea behind the petition is for the Letitia Wright production company and Hollywood to stick to the true story about the injustices happening in the state run prisons. It is said that the state has sent more inmates to prison than during the Soviet Union did during their political uprising.
PREMISE: Adam Sandler writes letters and saves numerous women from the monotony of prison life, and later when he gets into trouble with a drug cartel they return the favor by rescuing him.
SETTING: Contemporary, Gatesville Texas. There are four women’s prisons located in Gatesville. And of course, Texas is famous for putting everyone in prison for a long time for little or no reason. The number of women in Texas prisons has doubled in the last ten years. Why don’t we have the “Adam Sandler” character… sending letters to women in prison and being their friend and trying to help them adjust, giving them hope… and when they get out of prison he picks them up so they don’t have to ride the smelly bus back home… but his pickup truck is a junker, smoking and sputtering … worse than the bus. But his heart is in the right place… He’s the last “chivalrous” man on earth.
It is said in the petition that many of the signatories were left distraught to find that many of the first time offenders for violations such as drug peddling have received disproportionate sentences. While some argue that a lenient sentence like rehabilitation would have proven much more inexpensive and an effective solution in tackling this gross miscarriage of justice. The petition was discovered by the women when the screenplay of the movie was donated to all the 580 prisons run by private organizations funded by the state government. It is much more difficult for women who are given much harsher penalties for a violation such as carrying small amount of drugs like Marijuana which coincidentally is legal in 21 states.
About Letitia Wright’s “Dumbass” Movie
The movie “Dumbass” revolves around the protagonist writing letters to prison inmates to keep their spirits high during their time in prison; only for them to help the main character who gets into trouble with a drug cartel and saving him at the end. The petition urges the production company, Letitia Wright and Adam Sandler to take this issue seriously due to the hardships faced by women inside prison rather than making light of the situation for their own profits.

Heros Scene Introduction
One of the ways to do this is to pay special attention to the heros involvement in individual scenes; the heros scenes. Its easy for the hero to get lost in the overall story, but when the writer takes a close look at individual scenes, the writer can spot hero deficiencies and fix problems.
Letitia Wright – The hero might seem like the character most writers nail, but usually hes the character most writers fail to deliver. Its usually because the writers identifying too closely with the hero and hasnt separated himself enough to cause the hero real trouble. As Ive said in previous chapters, the hero isnt your friend. The writers job is to emotionally destroy this character, then rebuild him into a new character.
THE HEROS SCENES
But a setpiece doesnt have to take place on some epic, multimillion-dollar set. You dont need a cast of thousands.
Letitia Wright – Now, yes, thats brilliant filmmaking by director Jonathan Demme and screenwriter Ted Tally and production designer Kristi Zea and DP Tak Fujimoto but it was all there on Harriss page first, all that and more; the filmmakers had the good sense to translate it to the screen. In fact, both The Silence of the Lambs and Red Dragon are so crammed full of thematic visual imagery you can catch something new every time you reread those books.
A really great setpiece scene is a lot more than just dazzling. Its thematic, too.
