The Story

Desperate to find a soulmate in New York City, Shawn goes on one awkward date after another until he encounters the alluring Violet. He starts dating her, but his autism prevents him from understanding she’s actually a prostitute. Drawn in by his kindness, Violet appreciates Shawn’s quirky nature but conceals what she does after dark. Their only hope for a future is to discover the courage that comes from loving someone deeply.

Hooked is a unique romantic dramedy. The screenplay won 10 festival awards and is based on the award-winning novel that won a Book of the Year Award. Hooked will be released in late 2021 and you can sign up to get information about attending or hosting an Advance Screening.

Important Issues

Hooked will bring awareness to the crucial awareness to human trafficking and help people see autism through a new lens. The film has partnered with several organizations who work in these areas to highlight their important work.

Award-Winning Team

Hooked is being produced and directed by award-winning filmmaker Allen Wolf. His previous film, In My Sleep, played in theaters around the U.S., won film festival accolades, screened in over 70 countries, premiered on Showtime, and can now be seen on iTunes, Netflix, and Amazon Prime. He has led a creative team who are passionate about bringing the story of Hooked to the screen.

In Post-Production

Hooked was filmed entirely in Seattle, in the Fremont and University District area and on the Eastside. Post-production is now taking place in order for the film to be complete and in theaters in 2021.

Partnerships

Hooked will be partnering with anti-human trafficking organizations and autism awareness organizations to promote them upon the film’s release. Let us know if you’d like to be part of one of the Advance Screenings of Hooked.

Here’s what reviewers have to say about the screenplay:

“A Very Sweet and Endearing Romantic Comedy”

“A very sweet and endearing romantic comedy with an excellent relationship between Violet and Shawn at the center.” – THE BLACK LIST

“Superb Characters, Strong Dialogue.”

“A rewardingly nuanced, three-dimensional, and charming– if unconventional–love story. Strong character voices define the entirety of the plot, while the genuine chemistry between the central roles creates a natural, seemingly effortless appeal within both their relationships and their perspectives in broader terms … Superb characters, strong dialogue, and a polished overall execution wind up rendering a finished product that seems in many ways both moving and entertaining.” – SCRIPT SHARK

“Incredible Characters and Story”

– CINEQUEST FILM FESTIVAL

“Achieves the Rare Feat of Being Both Funny and Romantic.”

“Hooked is a fluently written romantic comedy that both acknowledges and deviates from the conventions in a sparky, original manner … While this set up might seem wildly implausible at first glance, it’s established in a very organic way, with warmth, intelligence and wit – three qualities that characterize the rest of the screenplay … Achieves the rare feat of being both funny and romantic, delivering an emotionally satisfying ending to Violet and Shawn’s misadventures, without patronizing the audience.” – BLUECAT SCREENPLAY COMPETITION

“A Lot of Heart, Poignancy and Charm.”

– COVERAGE INK

“A Sweet, Touching Story.”

“Hooked is a sweet, touching story that works to bring out the best in people, using autism as a backdrop.” – TRACKING BOARD
