6 INT. LONDON BALLROOM -NIGHT 6

MOVING POV -Through the throng of guests at the ball:

glimpses of Diana, stunning in a formal gown. On her lovelyface the same air of not seeing the bustle round her; ofliving in some other private world.

Robin, smart in his formal evening clothes, tracks her withhis eyes. He moves steadily towards her. She turns, catcheshis gaze. Holds the look for a moment, then turns away.

He reaches her. She shows no sign of noticing him.

ROBINI could ask you to dance. Youcould say you don’t feel likedancing right now. I could say,

Next time, maybe. And I couldsaunter away.

DIANAYou could saunter away.

ROBINOr I could just not ask.

That’s unexpected. She looks at him, unsure what he means.

He takes her hand and pulls her onto the dance floor.

She’s too taken by surprise to resist. Before she knows

what’s happening they’re dancing.

He dances very well. She lets him lead her, looking at him

with an amused quizzical look. She likes dancing with him.
