Playwriter and Screenwriter, Peter Hedges, does not have a long list of famous films that he has written. However, in the short list of films he has written in his lifetime, many of them are memorable pieces of work. From his first screenplay adaptation What’s Eating Gilbert Grape? (1993) to his most recent film, The Odd Life of Timothy Green (2012), he stands out as a dynamic writer that is able to bring incredible meaning and humor to his pieces.
There is no doubt that Hedges is a dramatic writer, as he does not have one film that strays from the genre. The fact is that he is good at what he does, which is writing films full of meaning and connections to real life. In the future, he might change his flow and try to tap a genre which he never touched before, but for now he is doing what he does best- creating drama.
