Aside from a well-introduced world/hero, is there anything else you look for in the first 8-15 pages of a script?

If you had to describe a writer’s “voice” in a few words, how would you describe it?
Subjectively, a writer's voice I look for is one that feels authentic. The writer doesn’t need to base their characters completely off their own lives but there need to be moments and experiences that I can read and feel like this was written by someone who has been through some form of that moment or who really crafted a genuine moment that someone can relate to.
