A Scripted Life, a funnily tender-hearted tear-fest, follows the life of a woman who is suddenly transported from an everyday life, in the Home Counties of England, to the heights of the Hollywood Hills. Here we meet Tilly Stiller, an English middle-aged writer who has to keep up with the fast paced world of Film if she hopes to achieve her goal. A dream she never thought would come true, does, and when she attends her first Beverly Hills party, she meets the one man she has always dreamt of meeting.
Charlie Kerman, a West Coast Rock Star, has everything a wealthy man could ever want, yet there’s still something missing. He slowly recovers from his failed marriage, with the help of his best boy, Dev, plus the crew he surrounds himself with, but everything changes when he meets an English novelist at a party. By the end of the evening she has suggested they team up to create the movie’s soundtrack. Charlie accepts, not knowing what the future holds in store for him.
From a working relationship to love is an easy path to amble, especially when you have certain elements in common. Tilly and Charlie have several things to bond over, a lost parent, music, and the way they structure words to produce the desired outcome. As they spend more time in each other’s company, Charlie realises the plain woman is not what she really seems. There are many depths to Tilly Stiller, and he slowly notices he is starting to like quite a few of them. Tilly has as many demons as Charlie, but she just manages her’s in a better way, and when she realises the condition that killed her Dad is coming for her, their lives change dramatically again, and Tilly finds she is living the sad Love Story told in her Blockbuster Movie.
