Interview with Screenwriter Alice L. Lee (Purgatory: A Love Story)

Matthew Toffolo's Summary

Matthew Toffolo: What is your screenplay about?

Alice L. Lee: “Purgatory: A Love Story” is my reworking of the “Princess and the Frog”. There are lots of versions of this story from all around the world, but for many women, the story boils down to having to kiss a lot of frogs (read, unsuitable men) in order to find your prince and true love.

I’ve always thought of love stories as being Purgatory in nature.

There’s a little suffering, a little transformation, followed by a little happiness. So,
what’s more Purgatory than dating and mating?

I divide the whole dating process into three groups: Sugar Daddy/Trophy Wife relationships– or what can I get from this relationship, relationships, the “I-can-onlymarry-the-most-perfect-person” relationships, and then there’s the “We-have-somuch-in-common”, relationships where you fall in love with each other even if one of you is a toad.
