Blow script
Blow (2001)
Synopsis: In the turbulence of the 1970s, the international drug trade underwent a fast, violent and lucrative revolution - and one ordinary American was at its center. But in just a few short years, George Jung (Johnny Depp), a high-school football star single handedly became the world's premiere importer of cocaine from Colombia's Medellin cartel, changing the course of an entire generation. "Blow" is a high-velocity look at George Jung's spectacular rise and fall.

FRED:

That's too bad. You would have been the

first one in the family.

GEORGE:

I know.

FRED:

Alright. You want me to get your old

job back? Because I could, you know, I

could put in that word.

GEORGE:

No, Dad. I don't want to...I mean, I

just don't want...

It's obvious to Fred that his son doesn't want to be like

him.

FRED:

What are you going to do?

GEORGE:

I'm going to California.

EXT. BELMONT SHORES APARTMENT - 1968 - DAY

SUPERIMPOSE:
MANHATTAN BEACH, CALIFORNIA 1968

George and Tuna, now 21-years old, struggle with their bags.

Their new place is a tackily furnished, two-story apartment

with small balconies and a view of the ocean. As George and

Tuna struggle with the bags, two California beauties appear

on the balcony next door: BARBARA BUCKLEY, 20, and MARIA

GONZALES, 21.

GIRLS:

You guys need some help?

George and Tuna share a look.

TUNA:

I don't know about you, but I think

we're gonna like it here.

EXT. MANHATTAN BEACH - 1968 - DAY

SERIES OF SHOTS:

Barbara and Maria introduce George and Tuna around to the

Manhattan Beach regulars. They are immediately accepted

despite their ill fitting shorts and Tuna's unhip black

socks. The beach scene is one big party. Lots of beer,

music, bikinis, and good times. By the end of the day,

George and Tuna have a hundred new friends.

GEORGE (V.O.)

California was like nothing I'd ever

experienced. The people were liberated

and independent and full of new ideas.

GEORGE (V.O.) (CONT'D)

They used words like "right on,"

"groovy," and "solid." The women are

all beautiful and seemed to share the

same occupation.

WOMAN #1

I'm a flight attendant.

WOMAN #2

I'm a flight attendant.
