Sweet November script
Synopsis: Nelson Moss (Keanu Reeves) and Sara Deever (Charlize Theron) have nothing in common except an hour spent in DMV hell. Intrigued by each other, but not quite ready to commit, they settle on a rather unconventional courtship: a one-month trial, after which they'll go their separate ways. No expectations. No pressure. No strings attached. What neither of them counts on is falling in love.

Just then, Beatrice enters the room, relieved to find

Nelson there.

BEATRICE:

There you are. Did you forgetyour one o'clock at the D.M.V.?

Sort of.

NELSON:

Reschedule.

BEATRICE:

The deadline to renew is today.

NELSON:

So let it expire.

BEATRICE:

It was expired when you got theticket. That's why you have to go.

NELSON:

Beatrice, I don't have time for

this. Wait till the

presentation's over...

BEATRICE:

If you don't renew today, they'llsuspend your license, which meansthe next time you get pulled over,

they can throw you in jail. And I

either.

A hush falls over the room.

VINCE:

Nobody beats the D.M.V., Nels.

Not even you.
