Insomnia script
Insomnia (2002)
Synopsis: From acclaimed director Chris Nolan ("Memento") comes the story of a veteran police detective (Al Pacino) who is sent to a small Alaskan town to investigate the murder of a teenage girl. Forced into a psychological game of cat-and-mouse by the primary suspect (Robin Williams), events escalate and the detective finds his own stability dangerously threatened.

Will nods. The plane lurches. The file falls to the floor

and the photographs scatter. The pilot catches a glimpse of

them. Looks at Will.

EXT. BUSH PLANE - CONTINUOUS

The small yellow plane veers left. Clears a mountain top and

gives view to the spectacular Alaskan coastline. The green

of the Bering sea, the blanket of pine trees, the jagged rock

of the beaches. Enormous.

EXT. LANDING STRIP - OUTSIDE NIGHTMUTE - DAY

A SIGN swinging in the wind: Nightmute, Alaska. Halibut

Fishing Capital of the World!

PULL BACK to reveal it hanging from the eave of a small,

corrugated building. The "airport." Nothing else for miles

around.

A mud-splattered Jeep Cherokee pulls up next to it. Brakes

SCREECHING. A YOUNG WOMAN hops out. About 23. Petite with

short, brown hair.

Peers up at the sky. Brightens at the sight of the BUSH

PLANE coming in for landing. Smooths down her down vest.

Making sure the GOLD SHIELD on her belt's visible. Nervous.

Excited.

OLD MAN (O.S.)

Eleanor?

ELLIE BURR turns. Shields her eyes from the sun. An OLD MAN

hosing down the side of the building.

ELLIE:

Hey, Mr. Angstrom!

MR. ANGSTROM

What're you doing here?

Ellie puffs up.

ELLIE:

Police business.
