The Crying Game script
Synopsis: Irish Republican Army member Fergus (Stephen Rea) forms an unexpected bond with Jody (Forest Whitaker), a kidnapped British soldier in his custody, despite the warnings of fellow IRA members Jude (Miranda Richardson) and Maguire (Adrian Dunbar). Jody makes Fergus promise he'll visit his girlfriend, Dil (Jaye Davidson), in London, and when Fergus flees to the city, he seeks her out. Hounded by his former IRA colleagues, he finds himself increasingly drawn to the enigmatic, and surprising, Dil.

INT. CAR - DAY

A mini, driving down a country road. Two men in the front,

three in the back.

On the floor of the car Jody lies, with three pairs of feet

on top of him, a black bag over his head and the barrel of a

gun dangling close to his face. Fergus holds the gun. He is

smoking a cigarette. His movements are slow and somewhat

innocent.

FERGUS:

So what's your name, soldier?

4.

JODY:

Fuck you.

FERGUS:

Yeah.

EXT. SMALL FARMHOUSE - EVENING.

INT. FARMHOUSE - NIGHT.

Jody pulled through and tied to a chair. Maguire, a small

lean man, talks to him through the hood.

MAGUIRE:

The situation is simple. You're being

held hostage by the Irish Republican

Army. They've got one of our senior

members under interrogation in

Castleraigh. We've informed them that if

they don't release him within three days,

you'll be shot. You'll be treated as our

guest until further developments. Have

you anything to say?

Jody is motionless under the black hood.

FERGUS:

Give him a cup of tea.

MAGUIRE:

Do you want a cup of tea?

He still says nothing.

DISSOLVE.

All the men are drinking tea. The blond woman comes in with a

plate and some food on it.

FERGUS:

See does he want some.

JUDE:

Do you want some food?
