Is there any recommended number of characters that is optimal for a screenplay? If I watcha flick such as Sideways, I can see that there are distinctly 4 characters that are easy to follow. Ive seen other flicks that had like more than 10 active characters and its like I lose focus and cant keep track of them all. I'm wondering what a 'safe' number or range might be.
