Se7en script
Se7en (1995)
Synopsis: When retiring police Detective William Somerset (Morgan Freeman) tackles a final case with the aid of newly transferred David Mills (Brad Pitt), they discover a number of elaborate and grizzly murders. They soon realize they are dealing with a serial killer (Kevin Spacey) who is targeting people he thinks represent one of the seven deadly sins. Somerset also befriends Mills' wife, Tracy (Gwyneth Paltrow), who is pregnant and afraid to raise her child in the crime-riddled city.


Somerset carries his suitcase outside the train station. The

city demands attention: cars screeching, people yelling, sirens


Somerset passes a family of bewildered tourists. A WEIRD MAN has

a hand on the tourist-father's suitcase.

It has become a tugging match with the Weird Man shouting, "I'll

take you to a taxi... I'll take you." Ahead, a group is gathered

on the sidewalk near two ambulances. People clamor to get a look

at a BLOODY BODY which lies on the street.

Policeman try to hold the crowd off. Ambulance attendants

administer aid to the victim, who convulses. Somerset moves by,

ignoring it all. He motions for a cab. One pulls up from the

street's stream of vehicles.


Somerset throws his suitcase in and shuts the door behind him.


(about the crowd)

What's the big fuss?

Somerset looks out at the crowd, looks at the driver.


Why do you care?


(under his breath)

Well, excuse me all to hell.

The driver leans forward, checking it out. The circle of

spectators shifts suddenly. A man has shoved another man and

they're really going at it now. The swing at each other and tear

at each other's clothing. One man's flailing fist connects and

the other man's face is instantly bloodied. The fight grows even

more spastic. Policemen try to stop it.
