Lost Highway script
Lost Highway (1997)
Synopsis: From this inventory of imagery, Lynch fashions two separate but intersecting stories, one about a jazz musician (Bill Pullman), tortured by the notion that his wife is having an affair, who suddenly finds himself accused of her murder. The other is a young mechanic (Balthazar Getty) drawn into a web of deceit by a temptress who is cheating on her gangster boyfriend. These two tales are linked by the fact that the women in both are played by the same actress (Patricia Arquette).

CUT TO:

INT. THE MADISON HOUSE - NIGHT

Fred puts down his music case, goes to the bedroom, and sees

Renee sleeping soundly.

FADE OUT:

FADE IN:

EXT. THE MADISON HOUSE - DOORSTEPS - DAY

Renee in a bathrobe, opens the front door to collect the

mail. She sees a plain, clean, manila envelope lying on the

step. She picks it up.

CLOSE UP ON THE ENVELOPE - No stamp, no writing, blank. She

takes the mail from the box, and goes back into the house.

CUT TO:

INT. THE MADISON HOUSE - LIVING ROOM - DAY

Renee opens the manila envelope. She's noticeably nervous

when she sees a videotape inside. She stares at it.

Fred enters, also wearing a bathrobe. He sees Renee staring

at the videotape - before she hears him enter. When she does

hear him, her eyes jerk away from the tape.

FRED:

What's that?

RENEE:

A videotape.

FRED:

Who's it from?

RENEE:

I don't know... There's no return

address on the envelope... In fact,

there's no address on it.
