Carson Reeves, who runs a screenwriting website called Scriptshadow, says writers basing scripts on real events face a constant problem: No subject or individual's life is compelling and dramatic enough by itself, he says, that it neatly fits into a script with three acts, subplots, plot twists and a powerful villain.
"You just have to get rid of things that maybe would have made the story more truthful," says Reeves, who actually gave the "Lincoln" script a negative review because he thought it was too heavy on conversation and lacking action.
