Silence (2016) - Screenplay by Martin Scorsese & Jay Cocks - Writing a Movie - Review

February 18, 2019

‘Silence’ is a story that is meant to be pondered over and talked about with your friends. With a profound understanding of the meaning of faith, suffering and the struggle to choose the right path in life, ‘Silence’ is a masterpiece that led to The 21st Rewrite's most detailed and engaging analysis yet. We compare the screenplay to the original novel by the Catholic Japanese novelist Shusaku Endo, and consider Scorsese and Cocks' process of adaptation that took over two decades to do service to the source material.
