Heavenly Creatures

Synopsis: Wealthy and precocious teenager Juliet (Kate Winslet) transfers from England to Christchurch, New Zealand, with her family, and forms a bond with the quiet, brooding Pauline (Melanie Lynskey) through their shared love of handsome big screen tenor Mario Lanza and games of make believe. But when their parents begin to suspect that their increasingly intense friendship is becoming unhealthy, the girls decide to run away to America, hatching a dark plan for those who threaten to keep them apart.

INT. SCHOOL CORRIDOR - MORNINGTRACKING . . . with Pauline's striding

feet down a crowded school corridor. CRANE UP . . . as she walks toward

CAMERA. In contrast to the other girls, she is introspective and

gruffly acknowledges her classmates.

CUT TO:

INT. SCHOOL ASSEMBLY HALL - MORNINGThe ornate wooden ceiling of the

assembly hall. TILT DOWN . . . to a sea of schoolgirls singing the last

verse of the hymn. Miss Stewart and the STAFF are standing on the

stage, singing.

LONG LENS into the crowd . . . Pauline is not participating in the

hymn. Her eyes look about uninterestedly.

ZOOM IN . . . on Miss Stewart glaring straight at CAMERA.

Pauline mouths the last couple of words.

The hymn finishes.

MISS STEWART:

Sit!

Everybody sits.

EXT. CHRISTCHURCH GIRLS' HIGH/CRANMER SQUARE - MORNINGThe Hulmes' car

pulls up outside the school.

CREDITS END:

WIDE SHOT . . . Juliet Hulme gets out of the car, followed by her

father, HENRY. They walk into the school.

CUT TO INT.

SCHOOL FRENCH CLASS - MORNINGClass 3A are in the midst of a French

lesson. All the class have name cards hanging around their necks

denoting their chosen "French name." MISS WALLER gestures at a screed

of subjugated verbs scrawled on the blackboard.

MISS WALLER The imperfect subjunctive, like the imperfect indicative,

indicates action in the past. "II voulait qu'elle lui donnat de

l'argent." Translate, somebody . . . quickly!

A SCHOOLGIRL - LAURA - blurts out from the front of the class.

LAURA:

"He wanted her to give him some money."

MISS WALLER:

(Angry) Put your hand up! I will not have girls talking out of turn in

my class!

The door opens and Miss Stewart brings Juliet into the room.

The presence of the headmistress causes the class to stand up.

MISS STEWART:

Good morning, gels.
