Taboo

Synopsis: When Christian Turner gathers together his fiancée Elizabeth and their friends Adam, Benjamin, Piper and Katie to celebrate their high-school graduation, they play the cheeky card game 'taboo' which anonymously confides their secret vices to paper. The following year Christian inherits the grand estate and invites them back for New Year's Eve. This time the games are far more serious, but go way weirder then anyone planned, with several unexpected twists.

''Taboo:
A prohibition against

touching, saying or doing something...

...for fear of immediate harm

from a supernatural force.''

lt's creepy.

And l don't-- l don't really get it.

The thing about taboos

is that society shuns them.

But there's something

very tempting about them.

The game will test whether

we succumb to the taboo.

-Such as?

-Such as:

Would you cheat on your spouse?

That's taboo? l thought that was

considered good country-club etiquette.

-You belong to some sick clubs.

-Everyone in?

-Oh, yeah.

-Yeah.

All right.

The rules are easy.

You get one card.

Don't let anyone look.

You answer ''yes'' or ''no''

to the question on it.

How do we know who answers what?

We don't. Nobody reads their own card.

lt's anonymous.

A total and complete lack

of accountability. l like it.

-Like voting.

-Like voting.

After we've answered the cards, we'll

shuffle them and pick one to read...

...and we'll see

what we're all truly made of.

l'm not so sure about this.

-lt's just a game.

-Rather play dress-up?

lt'll be fun, trust me.

Oh, that's nasty.

This is the most disturbing question

l've ever been asked.

ls ''maybe'' a good answer?

Don't look at me like that.

-Who goes first?

-Not me.

Would you guys shut up, already?

Okay. Let's read them.

Question:
''Would you have sex

with a minor?'' Answer: ''Yes.''

We begin our slide

into the moral abyss.

Oh, naughty, naughty.

Shit, l had sex before l was 1 4.

l don't see what the big deal is.

l didn't think they had altar boys

in the Jewish faith.

Okay, Piper. Your turn.

Question:
''Would you sleep

with a person of the same sex?''

Answer:
''Yes.''

What a great game to play

with our best friends.

-F*ck Taboo. Let's have an orgy.

-Or enroll in group therapy.

Maybe you need new friends.

Actually, we all seem pretty

well-suited for each other, so far.

Your turn.

All right, the question is,

''Would you have a threesome?''

The answer is yes.

-Two girls and one guy?

-Does it matter?

Mr. Right-Wing Conservative

over there...

...looks like he might think

two girls would be fun.

Okay, my turn.

Question:

''Would you have sex for money?''

Answer:
''Yes.''

l like sex, okay?

That does not make me a hooker.

-lt also doesn't make me a bitch.

-That's my baby.

Question:

''Would you sleep

with your partner's best friend?''

Answer:

A very disappointing no.

There is one good person

amongst us sinners.

Christian.

Don't you have to be less educated

to be in the Christian Coalition?

So says the prep-school anarchist.

No, l'm just a shallow,

materialistic party girl.

And at least l don't pretend

to believe in principles.

Well, l believe in principles.

True, he just doesn't have any.

Christian, stop pouting

and read the last question.

l think he's scared

to read the question.

-Just read the card.

-Okay. ''Would you sleep...

...with a relative?'' Answer: ''Yes.''

That's f*cking disgusting.

l'm glad that you all could make it.

We're glad that you all could make it.

That's so cute, Christian.

We're glad everyone could make it.

We are.

-Grow up, Piper. Things change.

-Easy for you to say.

Ladies, please. We haven't

seen each other since graduation.

Could you be nice?

Stop the whiny, insecure,

competitive bullshit. Please?

Yeah, l'm the Jew. lt's my job.

Oh, you like that, Christian? Jew.

lt's funny, Jewish. lt's good. Right?

Yeah, l bet you know

a lot of good Jew jokes, huh?

-Yeah, there's the--

-Christian. He's kidding.

No, no, let him finish.

Hey, l mean, it's his new house, huh?

He owns this big thing.

He's the sole heir.
