A Few Good Men

Synopsis: Lt. Daniel Kaffee (Tom Cruise) is a military lawyer defending two U.S. Marines charged with killing a fellow Marine at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba. Although Kaffee is known for seeking plea bargains, a fellow lawyer, Lt. Cdr. JoAnne Galloway (Demi Moore), convinces him that the accused marines were most likely carrying out an order from a commanding officer. Kaffee takes a risk by calling Col. Nathan R. Jessep (Jack Nicholson) to the stand in an effort to uncover the conspiracy.

The BAND is performing on the huge and lush parade grounds

before a crowd made up mostly of TOURISTS and DAY-CAMPERS.

As the TITLES ROLL, we watch the BAND do their thing from

various angles. Incredible precision is the name of the game.

Each polished black shoe hitting the ground as if they were

all attached by a rod. Each drumstick raised to the same

fraction of a centimeter before striking. A RIFLE DRILL TEAM

that can't possibly be human. Flags, banners, the works.

SUBTITLE:
THE WASHINGTON NAVY YARD, WASHINGTON, D.C.

HIGH ANGLE of the entire band an we end credits.

CUT TO:

EXT. A RED BRICK BUILDING - DAY

It's an important building, a main building. A few SAILORS

enter and exit and

CUT TO:

A WOMAN:

as she walks across the courtyard toward the brick building.

The WOMAN is JOANNE GALLOWAY, a navy lawyer in her early

30's. She's bright, attractive, impulsive, and has a tendency

to speak quickly. If she had any friends, they'd call her

JO. As she walks, she mutters to herself ...

JO:

I'm requesting... I'm... Captain,

I'd like to request that I be the

attorney assigned to rep -- I'd like

to request that it be myself who is

assigned to represent --

(she stops)

"That it be myself who is assigned

to represent"? ...Good, Jo, that's

confidence inspiring.
