The Savage

THE NEW WORLD meets LAST OF THE MOHICANS

Why Read It?

As the figure at the center of all stories about the Pilgrims and the First Thanksgiving, but whose own life has never been explored, Squanto is a truly fantastic subject for a biopic, and this script does not disappoint. Impeccably researched and packed with historical detail, this script becomes a true epic of the most cinematic scale, with enormous set pieces, larger than life characters, and complex themes. Squanto's journey is gripping and memorable, with plenty of twists and turns and a globetrotting path which only emphasizes the ambitious nature of the story and the nuanced depiction of the headstrong yet na've protagonist.
