Matthew Toffolo's Summary

 1. What is your screenplay about?

“The Great Adventure of the Bentley Girls” is set in England in the early 1800s, and tells the story of the Bentleys, a family composed of Aunt Lucy, the matriarch, and her three orphan nieces, Eliza, Julia, and Mary. Aunt Lucy’s goal in life is to arrange good marriages to her nieces, fulfilling a promise she made to her sister in her deathbed, sister who had been disowned by their father. Aunt Lucy, however, is unable to get married, because if she does, all the fortune that was left to her by her father would be given to her future husband.

Her task is a difficult one as certain things come into play, such as love, reputation, betrayal, and greed.
