“Drama is Basically About One Thing” #jfxxxvi

Aaron Sorkin

“[T]he trick is to follow the rules of classic storytelling. Drama is basically about one thing: Somebody wants something, and something or someone is standing in the way of him getting it. What he wants—the money, the girl, the ticket to Philadelphia—doesn’t really matter. But whatever it is, the audience has to want it for him.”

Aaron Sorkin
