Casting 2 boys (10) and 1 adult (70) for short film “A Good Deed” (NYC)

Director: Marcio Migliorisi. A Good Deed is short film developed by Director Marcio MIGLIORISI, in collaboration with Producer Diego FOYO.

Synopsis: An innocent little boy, Dean, holding a large cardboard box approaches his neighbor, Mrs. Whitish, a lovely old lady at the front steps of the apartment building they both live in. With compassionate eyes, he proceeds to explain how his friend, John, has unfortunately ran over her cat, whose body lies in the box. The conditions the cat was left in makes it impossible for Mrs. Whitish to bare the image of his remains. Dean, kindly, along with his condolences offers his services to bury the body. Mrs. Whitish agrees and thanks the little boy for his thoughtful offer. As he leaves we learn with his conversation with John that it was all an act in revenge for the loss of his dog caused by Mrs. Whitish and her incessant complaints. Now the hunt for the cat begins.

SEEKING:

DEAN
(10)
lives
 in 
the 
suburbs 
of 
New
 York 
with 
his 
father 
and 
mother. He 
is
 skinny, 
fragile, 
and 
awkward. 

Dean 
is 
smarter 
than 
the 
other 
kids,
 he
 thinks 
like 
an
 adult
 and 
is 
very 
mature. 

Because 
he 
is 
an 
only
 child, he 
is
 surrounded 
by 
adults,
 uncles, 
grandfathers, but
 he 
doesn’t 
have
 a 
brother
 or 
cousin 
to 
play 
with.
 Concerned
 about 
this 
situation, 
years 
ago 
his 
parents 
gave 
to 
him
 as 
a
 present 
a 
pet
 who 
grew 
up 
with 
him.


 Since 
the
 very first
 moment, 
Dean 
and 
his 
pet 
Porthos 
were 
best 
friends.

MRS.
WHITISH
(70),
 is
 the
 typical 
white‐haired
 and
 sweet‐faced 
granny
 that
 anybody 
would
 want 
to 
have.
 She
 became
 a 
widow 
ten
 years 
ago 
and her
 only
 companion
 is 
her
 cat
 Timmy. 
For 
her, 
that 
cat
 is 
the 
son
 she
 never
 had
 and
 the
 joy 
of
 her 
life. 

The 
first 
thought 
that 
runs
 through 
her
 head 
as 
soon 
as 
she 
wakes 
up
 is
 for
 her 
cat: 
where 
is 
it ,
is 
it 
cold, hungry. 
She 
spends 
hours 
on 
her
 couch, 
just 
reading
 and
 petting
 her
 cat.
 In
 the winter,
 just 
feeling 
the
 warmth of
 the
 cat
 by 
her 
feet 
on
 the
 bed 
makes
 Mrs.
Whitish
 feel 
less 
lonely.


JOHN
(10) 
is
 the
 youngest 
son 
of 
a 
family 
of 
5 
much
 older 
brothers.
 For that,
 he,
 like
 Dean, 
doesn’t 
have 
many
 friends
 his
 age
 to
 play 
with. 
He 
lives 
a 
few
 houses 
away
 from 
Dean’s. 
John
 loves 
eating 
and 
is 
a
 bit 
chubby, 
more
 childish 
than
 Dean,
 whom
 he
 admires because 
of 
his
 intelligence.
