Loitering with Intent

Synopsis: Two male actors/close friends want to jumpstart their careers. They end up making a big shot producer think that they have a hot script that everyone wants to get their hands on. The 2 men then drive to upstate New York and hole up in a family member's country home- with 10 dedicated days to write said script. Dominic and Raphael then get derailed by a beautiful gardener, Ava and Dominic's sister, Gigi. Both women appear at the house, which was supposed to be serene enough to focus on the task at hand. But to add to the problems, Gigi's boyfriend Wayne arrives, still suffering from PTSD, and his brother Devon as well, creating even more havoc. A looming deadline and complicated personal histories create scenes that are humorous and emotional.

We're doing rewrites,

we're swamped, you know, we can't.

This money goes away in two weeks, we don't

have to jump through any hoops with them.

- I just need to see the script.

- I'm gonna be honest with you.

Look I get you guys, I always have.

I can give you ten days, that's it. But we're

meeting with other writers, so get it to me.

How you gonna get out of this.

We don't even know aunt Carrie.

I auditioned for her once.

- You can't write a script in ten days.

- Yes, but we can.

We, together.

Come on, we've been

talking about doing this for years.

I have an idea.

What do writers do?

They go to the country.

We'll go to the country. To my sister's house.

We'll have it all to ourselves.

Peace, quiet, no distractions...

Let's just get there, get down, and do it.

Photosynthesis baby.

Oh, I forgot how

peaceful it is in the country.

Nature will flip you, Dominic.

Flip you for real, remember that.


Police activity,

people. stay back.

- Dominic, grab the bags.

- Oh, yeah.

That's very cute.

Very cute.

To Gigi's country manor.

Starting tomorrow,

I think we should cleanse it out.

No booze.

I saw this documentary on Ingmar Bergman

- at the Film Forum.

- I love the Film Forum.

He said the demons want you to

stay in bed with cold feet.

So the first thing he does is he gets up

in the morning and he takes a walk.

And then he writes.

You want some gross character of a woman!

That means power makes you more masculine,

and masculine means you're ugly.

Well shame on you, you macho shithead!

All right, f*ck this.


Yes, that's it!

It's a simple missing persons case.

Gets more evolved when we find the girl.

- Recognize!

- It's a character piece,

- masked as a noir,

- Wonderful.

Wonderful, wonderful!
