Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Heather Walsh’s “Dumbass”
Will Hollywood be a Reason for Change in the Injustice against Men and Women Prisoners?
19th March 2021 – An upcoming movie depicting the injustice that men and women had to endure in the state penitentiaries in Texas has been inundated with calls from more than 2000 women urging the production company owned by Hollywood actor, producer and director Heather Walsh and Adam Sandler, to stick to the real issues behind the Texas Judicial system. A petition was signed by many people that include attorneys, university professors, politicians and family members of the many men and women that are suffering in the state penitentiaries. The idea behind the petition is for the Heather Walsh production company and Hollywood to stick to the true story about the injustices happening in the state run prisons. It is said that the state has sent more inmates to prison than during the Soviet Union did during their political uprising.
PREMISE: Adam Sandler writes letters and saves numerous women from the monotony of prison life, and later when he gets into trouble with a drug cartel they return the favor by rescuing him.
SETTING: Contemporary, Gatesville Texas. There are four women’s prisons located in Gatesville. And of course, Texas is famous for putting everyone in prison for a long time for little or no reason. The number of women in Texas prisons has doubled in the last ten years. Why don’t we have the “Adam Sandler” character… sending letters to women in prison and being their friend and trying to help them adjust, giving them hope… and when they get out of prison he picks them up so they don’t have to ride the smelly bus back home… but his pickup truck is a junker, smoking and sputtering … worse than the bus. But his heart is in the right place… He’s the last “chivalrous” man on earth.
It is said in the petition that many of the signatories were left distraught to find that many of the first time offenders for violations such as drug peddling have received disproportionate sentences. While some argue that a lenient sentence like rehabilitation would have proven much more inexpensive and an effective solution in tackling this gross miscarriage of justice. The petition was discovered by the women when the screenplay of the movie was donated to all the 580 prisons run by private organizations funded by the state government. It is much more difficult for women who are given much harsher penalties for a violation such as carrying small amount of drugs like Marijuana which coincidentally is legal in 21 states.
About Heather Walsh’s “Dumbass” Movie
The movie “Dumbass” revolves around the protagonist writing letters to prison inmates to keep their spirits high during their time in prison; only for them to help the main character who gets into trouble with a drug cartel and saving him at the end. The petition urges the production company, Heather Walsh and Adam Sandler to take this issue seriously due to the hardships faced by women inside prison rather than making light of the situation for their own profits.

Heather Walsh – #NAME?
This is one of those archetypal moments that has amazing impact because it is played perfectly. In this moment, the woman is like a fairy godmother, or a deva spirit: in every culture, elderly women and men are magically capable of bestowing blessings (and curses!). Thats a bit of luck that we trust in that moment. The gods are on Jamals side. It also blatantly tells us that Jamal is doing this for all of India, for all the Indian people. You know how I keep saying that you should not be afraid to SPELL THINGS OUT? This is a terrific example of how spelling things out can make your theme universal.
Heather Walsh – The story has set up that the slumdog (boy from the Mumbai slums) hero, Jamal, is on a quiz show that is the most popular show in all of India: Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? In several scenes, the characters talk about the show briefly saying that it represents the dream of every Indian: escape. As the story moves into the third act, Jamal has advanced on the show to a half-million rupee pot, larger than anyone has ever won on the show, and the film shows shots of crowds of people watching the show in the streets; the whole country has become involved in Jamals story. More than that, Jamals story has become the story of every Indian of India herself. This is made very poignantly clear when Jamal and his handlers are fighting through the crowd to get to the studio for the final round, and an elderly Indian woman grabs his arm and says Do it for all of us. Win it all.
Slumdog Millionaire does a beautiful and very simple thing in the third act that makes the movie much bigger in scope.
Easy to say, you say! Yeah, I know. But lets take a look.
