Synopsis: The Rapture is a 1991 drama film written and directed by Michael Tolkin. It stars Mimi Rogers as a woman who converts from a swinger to a born-again Christian after learning that a true Rapture is upon the world.


We move slowly through a crowded office. A hundred

information operators in booths. SHARON works at a computer

terminal. Close on her. She's on a kind of autopilot as she

Six o'clock.

her headphones. SHARON starts to stand as she begins the

next sentence. Pause.


Operator 134. Is that a business or

residence? ...

And the other OPERATOR takes her headset and completes the

number as SHARON leaves her post.


Please hold for the number.

SHARON walks away.

Cut to:


And now we see her sitting in the back of a Jaguar

convertible. VIC is driving the car. VIC looks to someone
