Paradise Lost

Just saw Phoebe Waller-Bridge's "Fleabag" live show, which she premiered at the Fringe Festival in 2013. Naturally, it was/is phenomenal...

Thing is, I wrote a very similar short film script in 2011. And I gave it to my professor, telling him I wanted to film it for class.

His response: "Who'd want to watch a movie about a confused, promiscuous girl?"

This wasn't the first sexist thing he said to me, and it wouldn't be the last. What ensued the rest of the semester was a battle of wills.

I don't know who won, but I never filmed my script.
