“Listen, Mike, I liked your script. But my note is that  the ending needs some tweaking. It’s too dark.”

“Well, I mean, it’s supposed to be dark.”

“You’re not getting it. This is Hollywood, people love happy endings. Glimmer of hope. They fall in love. Audience goes home happy.”

“I can try, but really, I just don’t think–”

“Listen, it’s my studio’s money, give me a happy ending. Something that makes me feel warm and fuzzy.”

“It’s a movie about a girl getting raped.”

“Yes, so can they like, fall in love with the end or something? Reconcile their differences?”
