There is hope in the form of a recently published work, The Address of Happiness. In this book, author and former Hollywood executive David Paul Kirkpatrick tells a story of true love the time-honored way, using the basic elements of our humanity to bring in the audience. His story is one of unsuspecting surprises, deep symbolism, and a beauty that cannot yet be placed into words. It is soon to arrive on a screen near you thanks to Stephen Simon, producer of such films as Somewhere in Time and What Dreams May Come, who has picked up the movie rights. It promises to remind the audience that the goal of the movie is the story and the characters, not the directors and actors.
