Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Maria Conchita Alonso’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 Maria Conchita Alonso 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 Maria Conchita Alonso 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 Maria Conchita Alonso’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, Maria Conchita Alonso 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.

Mastering format isnt optional if an aspiring screenwriter wants to become a paid professional. Its mandatory! But it can be confusing. Even when the writer understands how the basics work, the writer may not understand how to take formatting to the next level to use it to create style and voice. And even further to create suspense, fear, comedy, love and many other visual and dialogue experiences. Yes, format can do more than tell us whether were INT. or EXT.!
The easiest way for a producer to weed out the amateurs is to flip through a script to see if the format is correct AND to see if the format is being used to enhance the story. Amateurs take format for granted. To them its nothing more than a nuisance; they slap it on the page without giving thought to how format can contribute to the story or how it can distinguish their individual style and voice. Pros know better. They know how to use format to enhance the plot/execution, characters, dialogue and scenes. And they know how to use it to create a style and voice that will distinguish them as master screenwriters.
Maria Conchita Alonso – WHY FORMAT COUNTS
CHAPTER SEVEN: FORMAT – THE KEY TO PRO SCREENWRITING
Sometimes a story will take a whole scene to establish the desire line:
Maria Conchita Alonso – #NAME?
Heres another hint: its helpful to muse on how you might use any or all of the six senses to externalize INNER AND OUTER DESIRE.
I want to note that the establishing of OUTER DESIRE is such a big moment that its often used as the SEQUENCE ONE CLIMAX, as it is in Raging Bull and Funny Girl (the song gets her hired by the musical director at the theater, and her new life begins). The hero/ines desire is important to establish early on, so using it as the Act One Climax (the end of Sequence Two) would in most cases be a bit late. But there are always exceptions!
