RICHARD WILLETT'S "9/10" WINS AWARD FOR DIVERSITY
Richard Willett's feature screenplay 9/10 was the first runner-up in the diversity category of the Cynosure Screenwriting Awards. The judges said: "This is a well thought out, beautifully written film. Using the device that the audience knows more than the characters is a brilliant stroke. We root for them. Ache for them. Want them to be OK. The moment before Armageddon looks just like this, that's what the script is telling us. It's funny and romantic, and spooky, and sad, and filled with powerful emotion."
