Last Wild One (adapted from my novel: TJ’s Last Summer in Cape Cod)

Logline

A sexy summer saga of growing up and falling in love.

TJ initially seems like your average teenage boy – easily influenced by older male role models, hungry for knowledge and eager for experience with women. Uncle Peter, on the other hand, is a wild and passionate man who has embraced a hedonistic lifestyle, and hopes to shape TJ in much the same way.

Synopis

The bond between Taj James aka TJ an 18 year old nephew and his 55 year old womanizing Uncle Peter, seems more sacred than wedding vows. This relationship was admired by TJ’s girlfriends, viewed with suspicion by his mom but ignored by his dad. Find out why TJ’s girlfriends and his parents always played second fiddle to Uncle Peter.

It’s TJ’s last summer before he goes off on his basketball scholarship to college and he has grand plans, so he enrols the help of his uncle as his parents are conservative. As summer rolled along they lived like there was no tomorrow but as the curtains were drawn on this last summer in Cape Cod, one was set to gain more than the other.  A sexy summer story that will make you want to be 18 again but it also holds true to the adage that “your sins will find you out”.


NOSTALGIA (inspired by: Nostalgia from: A City set upon a Hill)

Logline

When two best friends from an all-boys boarding high school run into each other 25 year later in an airport departure lounge, the wife of one felt compelled to take a back seat and change her flight plans.

Synopsis

A perfect example that “Memories don’t leave like people do”.

Two best friends from an all boy’s boarding high school now in their forties meet again in an airport’s departure lounge not having seen each other since their graduation 25 years ago. It was hard to have kept in touch as when they graduated it was not yet the age of internet, cell phones or Facebook. They got carried away reminiscing about their 7 years at a remote boarding school in Jamaica. One of the guys was traveling with his wife, she felt redundant in the process.

After briefly renewing acquaintance the story switches to when they were in first form and their mom dropped them off at boarding school. The screenplay takes us through junior and senior years packed with the fun and frolic of teenagers who are away from home in a remote mountain boarding school as they all grow together and adapt life lessons which make them the successful men they become. After the flashback years the screenplay cuts back to these men still seated there reminiscing only to realize that one had missed his flight. One was compelled to change his flight plans.

For those who went boarding school, it's a definite nostalgic reliving of those years of balancing academic life with teenage fun and frolic. For those who never had that experience, they will still enjoy it but are guaranteed to have some regrets for that missing link in their teenage years.

Nostalgia transcends movies such as; School Ties and Dead Poet’s Society by offering a replay of the fun and frolic of teenage boys when they are away from home and in the confines of a strict well managed prestigious 160 year old boys boarding school, on the peak of the Santa Cruz Mountains in one of the remotest yet unique part of Jamaica. It’s nostalgia in its purest form.
