At First Sight script
Synopsis: In the midst of a desperately needed vacation, cynical Manhattanite Amy Benic (Mira Sorvino) meets blind massage therapist Virgil Adamson (Val Kilmer). Fascinated by his independence and seduced by his positivity, Benic falls for him hard. As their relationship deepens, the two plan to leave the tiny resort town Adamson knows by touch for the hustle and bustle of New York City, where Benic suggests he undergo a cutting-edge medical procedure that could repair his sense of sight.

VIRGIL:

I - I'm sorry - it was too deep...

She cries for another few beats - then takes a breath.

AMY No - it.. it's not you..

It's just things have kinda built up,

I don't know why I'm crying.. look,

this is embarrassing...

VIRGIL Don't be embarrassed -

you obviously needed it.

We should stop for today.

AMY Yeah, thanks.

You always make the girls cry.

VIRGIL:

Not since grade school.

I'm going to go now - unless you'd like me to stay.

AMY:

Could you - just for a minute?

VIRGIL:

Of course, whatever you need.

Virgil sits next to her - then reaches out - takes her hand and

starts a slow comforting massage - we see Amy visibly relax.

AMY:

You ever feel like a Martian's

invaded your entire body?

VIRGIL:

Every day.

Amy, closes her eyes - smiling slightly in thanks.

INT. VIRGIL'S MASSAGE ROOM - LATER

CAMERA pans slowly over to Amy asleep - and on the click of the door

- her eyes dreamily open.

AMY:

Virgil?

INT. BEAR MTN. HEALTH SPA - LATE DAY

Hallway outside the massage area. Amy exits the change room, now

wearing her sweats - pulling on her sneakers.

VIRGIL (O.S.)

(calling out)

Hey Caroline, you look incredible today.

CAROLINE (O.S.)

(laughing)

Quite a compliment, Virgil. See ya tomorrow.

VIRGIL (O.S.)

See ya.

Amy looks down the hall - sees a glimpse of Virgil rounding the

corner. She chases after hi~n into the reception area where she sees

him exiting the door and moving of f down the driveway.

AMY:

Virgil - wait...

He's gone. Hopping along, tugging on her last sandal - she decides

to go after him - fighting her way through a large tour group just

checking in.

EXT. BEAR MTN. SPA - LATE DAY

Virgil in the distance, moving his way towards the main street. Amy

exiting the building - trying not to slip on the ice as she, hurries

after him - trying to get close enough to call out.
