Interview with the Vampire script
Synopsis: Born as an 18th-century lord, Louis (Brad Pitt) is now a bicentennial vampire, telling his story to an eager biographer (Christian Slater). Suicidal after the death of his family, he meets Lestat (Tom Cruise), a vampire who persuades him to choose immortality over death and become his companion. Eventually, gentle Louis resolves to leave his violent maker, but Lestat guilts him into staying by turning a young girl (Kirsten Dunst) -- whose addition to the "family" breeds even more conflict.

He passes slave quarters and the distant colonial raisedcottage mansion of Pointe du Lac.

CONTINUE V.O. as he speaks he approaches a small parishchurch and graveyard. He dismounts, approaches a rectangular

Greek style above ground tomb. The stone is

like a doorway.

CONTINUED:

LOUIS (V.O.)

I had only just lost my wife inchildbirth. She and the infant

had been buried less than half a

year.

Inscriptions on the high rectangular tomb show the names:

DIANNE DE POINTE DU LAC 1763 - 1791

INFANT JEAN MARIE 1791

Louis in mix of anger and sadness pushes away the vinesalready covering the head stone and stares bitterly atthe inscription which he touches with his fingers. Takes

a flask from his pocket, takes a heavy drink. He sits,

exhausted, against the grave, as if close to his wife andchild. Face tender and sad.

INT. DINING ROOM (POINTE DU LAC) - NIGHT

Table set with candelabra, gorgeous China.

Louis in soiled shirt and boots, sits at the head of the

table, staring at a plate full of steaming food.

YVETTE, pretty Mulatto slave, pours his glass full ofwine.

LOUIS (V.O.)

I had everything a man could askfor. Yet a darkness had come that

would not lift.

YVETTE:

Please, Michie, eat your supper.

Please. We pray for you everyday.

Louis doesn't move.

Yvette takes his linen napkin from the ring and tries toput it in his lap. He takes her wrist firmly. Rises

from table.

LOUIS:

(patiently)

I know, ma chere. I need time.

EXT. RIVERFRONT STREET (NEW ORLEANS)

of gunwale sidewalks and loud, crowded riverfront tavernsfull of ruffians.

(CONTINUED)

7.

CONTINUED:

Louis in ragged lace and dirty brocade coat walksdrunkenly along the sidewalk. As he enters a crowded,

smoky little tavern and blunders into a card game, flatboat

men and one FANCY-DRESSED GAMBLER eye him as a mark.

He lays his money down on the table. They deal him in.
