Se7en (1995)
When retiring police Detective William Somerset (Morgan Freeman) tackles a final case with the aid of newly transferred David Mills (Brad Pitt), they discover a number of elaborate and grizzly murders. They soon realize they are dealing with a serial killer (Kevin Spacey) who is targeting people he thinks represent one of the seven deadly sins. Somerset also befriends Mills' wife, Tracy (Gwyneth Paltrow), who is pregnant and afraid to raise her child in the crime-riddled city.

INT. OLD HOUSE -- DAY

Sunlight comes through the soot on the windows, more brown than

bright. SOMERSET, 45, stands in one corner of this small,

second-story room. He looks over the ceiling, looks down at the

worn wooden floors, looks at the peeling wallpaper.

He walks to the center of the room, continues his study, taking

his time. He halts, turns to one wall where the current

wallpaper is torn away to reveal flowery wallpaper underneath.

Somerset goes to this wall and runs his finger across one of the

pale, red roses which decorates the older paper. He pushes the

grime away, brings the rose out more clearly.

He reaches into his suit pocket and takes out a switchblade. He

flips the thin, lethal blade free. Working deliberately,

delicately, Somerset cuts a square around the rose, then peels

the square of dry wallpaper away from the wall. He studies it in

his hand.

EXT. OLD HOUSE -- DAY

Somerset stands in front of the old home. He looks out at the

surrounding farms and forests. He ponders something. Birds

sing.

MAN (O.S.)

Is something wrong?

Somerset does not respond, just stares off. The MAN, 34, wears a

real-estate broker's jacket and stands beside a FOR SALE sign in

the muddy lawn.

MAN:

Is there something the matter?

Somerset turns to face the man, then looks back at the house.
