The Story

Hooked is a romantic dramedy feature film about a man who believes he found his perfect soulmate but his autism prevents him from realizing she’s actually a prostitute. The screenplay has won 10 festival awards and is based on the award-winning novel that won a Book of the Year Award.

Important Issues

Hooked will bring awareness to the crucial awareness to human trafficking as well as 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.

Non-Profit Partnership

Hooked is sponsored by the 501(c)3non-profit, From the Heart Productions, so that any contributions, whether cash or non-cash, made toward Hooked are tax-deductible. From the Heart Productions has been dedicated to supporting world-changing films for over 23 years. The budget for Hooked was raised entirely from tax-deductible donations and the film is only possible because of the generous support of businesses and people in the community. See the crowdfunding campaign here.

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’s leading a creative team who are passionate about bringing the story of Hooked to the screen.

In Post-Production

Hooked was filmed from August 8-27 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 in 2019

Generosity

Hooked is being produced because of the resources being donated by generous people and organizations. We will be promoting them through our website and social media, as well as featuring them in the end credits of the movie. We love partnering with others so that Hooked can have a positive impact around the world. For more details, check out our crowdfunding page or contact info@morningstarpictures.com

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
