The Libertine

Synopsis: The feature film The Libertine was incredibly difficult to make, from finding and retaining the incredible cast, to dealing with funding problems including an overnight tax law change in the U.K., to the daily grind of production on a tight budget. Capturing the Libertine asks the question, "If it's this difficult to make independent films, why do it?"

Maurice steps into the living room. Edith slams the door on

him. Maurice tries to open it. Locked.

MAURICE:

You're a fucking child, Edith!

EDITH (O.S.)

Keep sweet talking.

Maurice steps away from the door and puts the paper on thetable. He fidgets, sits, stands, and sits.

Edith marches out toward the front door.

MAURICE:

I'll just put the article aside then.

EDITH:

You look like a lazy slob. Why don'tyou get dressed?

MAURICE:

For what? In case I bump into someoneI know in the bathroom?

EDITH:

Just because you can't go outside,

doesn't mean you have to give up onhaving a day. Maybe if you getdressed you'll get some work done onyour book.

MAURICE:

I'll get work done if you look atthe article.

5.

Edith walks over and looks at the paper.

EDITH:

Which one?

Maurice grabs a bejeweled PEN out of Edith's purse and circlesan article. Edith snatches the pen back.

EDITH (CONT'D)

Watch the Visconti.

MAURICE:

Why don't you carry expensive jewelrylike a normal woman?

EDITH:

The pen is mightier than the earring.

Edith drops her pen in her bag and looks at the article.

The headline reads, "Sale of news blog 'The Euro Post' drives

stock price beyond value." Edith brushes it aside.

MAURICE:

They say you're wasting our money.

EDITH:

My money.

MAURICE:

You don't think you should even readit?

EDITH:

If I deem a company worth acquiring,

trust that it is.

Edith puts on her coat and starts to leave.

MAURICE:

I'm going to work from the bedroomtoday.

Edith stops.

EDITH:

If you go in there, I'll know.

MAURICE:

You hid a camera?

EDITH:

I'll smell it on you.

6.

MAURICE:

You're out all day while I'm stuckhere. It doesn't make sense to let

the nice room go to waste.

EDITH:

If we're forced to share an apartmentbecause of your disgusting behavior-
