Storyboard Text

  • You don't dare touch her bare arm! Get your mind off her, Charlie!
  • This kind of picture is a lie. Things are forced to fit because the writer or the director or somebody wanted something in that didn't belong. And it doesn't feel right.
  • Should you put your arm around her or not? Was she waiting for you to do it? Would she get angry? You are still behaving like an adolescent!
  • Charlie Gordon was an intellectually disabled man who dreamed of becoming smarter, for as long as he could remember. Now, his fantasy is fulfilled after undergoing a surgical procedure that raised his I.Q. of 68 by more than double. As he adapts to the effects of the operation, he is shadowed by his past and future selves.
  • You have been so absorbed in yourself. She is terrified of you, Charlie. 
  • Beekman University  Center for Retarded Adults
  • You're different. You've changed. It's your attitude toward people -you're not the same kind of human being-
  • May 1 - Charlie takes Alice Kinnian, his longtime teacher at the college he used to study at, on a date to the cinema. 
  • May 17 - Charlie brings Alice to an orchestra concert at The Mall in Central Park. 
  • June 6 - After experiencing a disturbing and traumatic flashback, Charlie needs somebody to talk to, somebody that would make him feel better: Alice. He visits her in the classroom she teaches at the Center for Retarded Adults.
  • Charlie understands that the doctors who conducted the experiment think of him as mere raw scientific material. He has been treated in the same way that Algernon, a mouse subjected to the same operation as Charlie, was too. 
  • Nobody really cares about Charlie Gordon, whether he's a moron or a genius. Whether he has an I.Q. of 185 or 70. 
  • It seems as if Charlie finds himself trapped in a maze, one that he has been placed in since birth.
