"MEDEA, SOUTH CAROLINA calls to mind movies like HELL OR HIGH WATER and RAMBO, but filters them through a uniquely female story in the case of Mary Jo, a mother who is ultimately rebelling against the absent father of her young child... impressive and engaging for its determined, straight-ahead narrative approach... this is a unique drama/thriller, with rich meaty roles for actors, a reasonable budget, and even a nice piece of source material to reference (the title page notes the project is based on the MEDEA play by Euripides)... this is a memorable, ballsy, effective script... a hard script to put down." – Script Arsenal
