Hardcore script
Hardcore (1979)
Synopsis: Hardcore is a 1979 American crime drama film written and directed by Paul Schrader and starring George C. Scott, Peter Boyle and Season Hubley. The story concerns a father searching for his daughter, who has vanished only to appear in a pornographic film. Writer-director Schrader had previously written the screenplay for Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver, and both films share a theme of exploring an unseen subculture.

JAKE VAN DORN, forty, and his brother JOE, fifty, sit at the

table watching the kitchen activity.

The house echoes with small talk:

AUNT:

...He got accepted at Grand Valley,

but he'd rather go to Michigan...

NEPHEW #1

...Get that pink rot...

NEPHEW #2

...No way Uncle Joe talk me into

cutting celery again this summer.

Rather work in the car wash.

As the CAMERA TRACKS THROUGH the dining room, it passes a

cluster of men standing near the buffet. WES DE JONG and

JOHN VAN DORN, both about forty, casually discuss a

theological point with GRANDFATHER VAN DORN. Across the table,

a young boy, about eleven, listens with rapt awe.

These are men of the soil. Their faces are sun-blotched and

weather-beaten. Wes has rolled up the sleeves of his white

shirt; John has switched to a more comfortable plaid.

JOHN:

...I still say that if a man has

committed the unpardonable sin, he

knows he has.

Grandfather nods head approvingly.

WES:

I don't know about that, John. It

don't seem to account much for God's

grace.

JOHN:

What kind of grace do you mean,

universal or specific...?
