Story


The winner of the second Project Greenlight screenwriting contest, THE BATTLE OF SHAKER HEIGHTS, is a uniquely funny portrait of modern youth under siege.

For high school senior Kelly Ernswiler, life is war - or, at least, it's simulated war. In all his 17 years, Kelly has found just one true passion: re-enacting the epic battle scenes of World War II. When he meets Bart Bowland, a fellow war re-enactor who is Kelly's direct opposite, his life take twists and turns he never expected - including a real-life Special Ops mission against a school bully, an ongoing battle with his outrageous family and the epic teenage crush of a lifetime.

by Joe Williams [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
“..Bouncing between lame comedic interludes and forced dramatic scenes..”
by Tim Knight [Reel]
“..is another clunker from the Affleck and Damon Greenlight team..”
