Blackbird

Synopsis: This is a film about a troubled teen, Sean Randall, who is falsely accused of planning a Columbine shooting scenario. It all begins when an unlikely bond forms between Sean (Connor Jessup) and a preppy teenage girl named Deanna Roy (Alexia Fast). Deanna's boyfriend is deeply threatened by Sean and Deanna's friendship, resulting in a violent confrontation. Seeking to protect himself, Sean issues a death threat online - and is swiftly arrested. When the police raid Sean's home, they find rifles, shotguns, knives and ammunition - all property of Sean's father Ricky (Michael Buie), an avid hunter. They also find a supposed "hit list" with twenty names of people who have tormented Sean. The authorities and the media proclaim another Columbine has been narrowly averted, and soon Sean faces a terrifying imprisonment in a youth detention facility. Sean's only hope is to overcome his dark image, and prove his innocence to Deanna and to his community.

Wait downstairs, Sean.

What's going on?

Mr. Randall, we have a warrant

to search your house.

A warrant?

What for?

Two upstairs, two down.

Tommy, what the f*ck?

Ok, you guys cover

the bedrooms upstairs.

We got weapons down here.

Call it in.

- Call what in?

Ok, you just stay right there.

You're about to be

front page news, Sean.

How do you feel about that?

I told you, I didn't do anything.

You planned to do something.

No, I didn't.

I wish you'd stop saying that.

Winchester 94.

Lever action.

Sleek, accurate, no-nonsense.

Is that your favourite?

We found it loaded, ready to go.

Or the Remington 870?

Also loaded.

Were you going to start with this one

and move to the Winchester,

or the other way around?

Those are my dad's guns.

I don't know anything about them.

I don't even like guns.

Which gun is going to make

me feel like a man today?

So many options, I feel giddy inside

just thinking about it.

Sean, put that thing away.

They're close.

I'll take your word for it.

How come you get the pump action, Ricky?

I wish you'd stop calling me that.

Well it is your name.

Keep the muzzle down.

Prop it up.

No!

Is that its heart?

Stop filming this.

You'll get the next one.

The next what?

I'm just going to run in...

you may as well wait here.

Whatcha looking at, you f*cking weirdo?

They're cliches... ignore them.

Dude, is that blood on your hands?

Probably killed his

sister or ate his dog.

Goths are pacifists, you

guys don't know anything.

When did you become the Goth expert?

I am a Goth.

Well goths don't listen

to Marilyn Manson.

I listen to other stuff.

Check this out.

Oh, dude...

Stop filming this.

...that is sick.

Oh, tell me that's an animal!

It's a deer.

F*ck, Sean.

- That's gross!

- That is so f*cking awesome.

Can you send it to me?

Yeah, I'll just post it.

What are you gonna do take

on the entire hockey team?

Yeah, sure... why not?

Who threw it?

Deanna?

I didn't realize you guys were friends?

We're on the same bus.

Okay, then why don't you

tell him who did it then?

Yeah some friend.

Don't do it again.

Or what?

You gonna slit your wrists?

How about I give you your own website?

Dumb asshole jocks dot com.

You serious?

Corey.

Here, give it to me.

This would make great

YouTube material, man.

All we need is a name.

How about "Freak gets happy slapped. "

No, that's too obvious, isn't it?

Tell us about this guy?

Cory?

Just a guy at my school.

You must hate him.

I know I would if he did that to me.

I don't hate him.

But it's pretty clear he hates me.

Maybe you should question

him. He's the dangerous one.

"Noon.

Felt like a good time to start.

A clean, memorable,

turning point of a time.

The cafeteria, with all its

pathetic symmetry would be the place.

Two Colt 45s would be the tools.

The captain of the hockey team,

that vain, preening peacock,

would be the first target.

His bourgeois, groupie of a

girlfriend would be the next.

Followed soon after by the

rest of the hockey team.

It would be methodical.

It would be unemotional.

With his tools he could fix them all. "

It's interesting...

we found the same story online.

Are you sure you don't want that lawyer?

It's just a story.

Ms. Dorey told me to write down my...

Your feelings?

Who's Ms. Dorey?

I heard there was an

incident at the mall.

Do you want to talk about it?

Not really.

Do you have anybody you can talk to?

Like my dad?

You know, you might not believe it,

but I dressed Goth in high school.

I don't believe it.

I didn't live in Eastport. I

grew up in the city, like you.
