Of course, the movie would have to deal with side issues, such as the governor lying to his staff, disabling the tracking device on his state-owned vehicle, using state money to visit his lover, and explaining about all those other women he admitted “crossing the line” with, but the central theme would be the Shakespearean nature of the love tragedy. I’m a South Carolinian, and I wouldn’t mind seeing the leader of my state portrayed as a vulnerable human, as we all are. So I’m making an appeal to anyone who can make this movie happen to please step up.
Marjory Wentworth is the Poet Laureate of South Carolina and a friend of Jenny Sanford. I have met Ms. Wentworth a time or two at different literary affairs in Charleston and we have exchanged emails. Ms. Wentworth’s husband is an award-winning film producer. I’ve never met him, but when I do, I will pitch the Sanford movie project to him. I hope he doen’t simply tell me to go take a hike.
