The following is my newest creation that has inpired me to learn to blog. I am working toward the awakening the divine in mankind.
In a dream I felt inspired to write this movie with the help of anyone drawn to it, the idea as of today is as follows:
All you need is love set in middle class suburbs of NYC in the 60’s
Possible name: All you need is"bleep" tying in quantum physics and causing more thought than the obvious "All you need is love"
A story for a movie, book, play, short story or musical
It opens with our hero, a 7 year old boy, surrounded by playing neighborhood kids with the usual accompanying noise.
Through the boys eyes we see one neighbor kid say "Hey I hear your father died" still through boys eyes all goes silent and we see blurred fish eye vision, boy is stunned, Kids mother is right in boy’s face, speaking in strangely muffled tones tells boy he’d better go home and kind of pushes him off her property toward his home across the way. View goes up and out into space
Mother bawling uncontrollably, screaming hysterically at kids, Grandmother consoling her tells the kids (boy and his two sisters) to play outside and not come in unless called.
Several scenes play of the three kids playing in bushes building a "fort". The boy is extremely irritating, destroying the sisters well planned fort, this leads to sister one explaining to the boy that the this side of the road is "the girl’s fort" and the other side of the road is the "boy’s fort". She really tries to sell the idea. Boy enters his fort and view goes up and out into space showing how alone boy is. Song: One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do
It goes unnoticed that boy isn’t speaking at all and is sort of catatonic.
Several examples of boy’s mental illness with Mother trying to minimize but the school demands something be done. Different things are tried over the years with different bizarre therapies being tried. One Dr says "He’ll talk when he has something to say." Electro Convulsive Therapy, Timothy Leary recommending LSD, Art Therapy, on and on
Music therapy is the next thing being tried, Show Dr explaining to Mother about a therapeutic community and how they plan to use music to reach our hero through reward and punishment.
Boy is 16 year old and living on a ward in a Therapeutic community, we see someone introducing boy on the floor and explaining to him, even though he does not appear to be listening, Group therapies in therapeutic ward (knocking around the zoo James Taylor)
Boy headed to group therapy wearing headphones (ain’t it great to be crazy) several scenes illustrating how the headphones are used as punishment /reward for participating in therapy
We go through several scenes of the music being taken away for different "infractions" and given back for cooperating with therapy.
Some funny and sad scenes showing other patients sharing problems in groups
