Intervention

SCENE 1 - AN INTRODUCTION

Voice over. Show images of nature.

CARRIE
There's a lot we can learn from
them. The way they're so in tune
with nature… They believe in a
oneness of all things, a sort of
communal energy. I just think it
would really benefit our society if
we tried to be more like them.

Carrie starts to put on makeup. Close up of lips.

CARRIE (CONT.)
It'd solve a lot of our problems.

CU on brushes, etc. Slowly focusing on it being blue.

JOHN
This has been going on for years
now. We saw the movie in IMAX and
I guess it was just too much for
her. It started slowly. She
started dreaming about it, talking
in her sleep. Then one day I came
home from work early and caught her
dressing up. I thought it was
harmless, ya know? Just all in
fun, but when she didn't come
home… I thought something had
happened to her. We found her in
the woods. Thats we knew it was a
problem.

Show Carrie in full Na'vi makeup.

JOHN (CONT.)
This has just got to stop. It's
tearing us apart.

[Title sequence]

SCENE 2 - THE DISEASE

Intersperse interview footage with Carrie b-roll of
drawings, crazy stuff, decorating, etc.

PSYCHOLOGIST
Carrie shows signs of disordered
schizounobtania. Her delusions are
becoming more frequent now and she
is often very childlike in the way
she interacts with her husband and
the rest of the world. Although
this has only recently been
recognized as a legitimate disease,
I have been studying Carrie's case
for about two and a half years. I
haven't seen any cases as advanced
as hers. There's not much we can
do for her unless she allows us to
help her, and she has not been very
cooperative. If this goes on much
longer she will be considered a
hazard to society.

SCENE 3 - TEARING US APART

JOHN
Where are you going? (Carrie is
silent.) I said, where are you
going? No. No, you can't do
this…

CARRIE
You just don't understand!

JOHN
No. No, I don't understand! Why
can't we just be…

CARRIE
I'm doing this for YOU! For our
future CHILDREN! For the benefit of
the WORLD! If you would just listen
to what the Na'vi have to say…

JOHN
It's a movie! It's not real!

Carrie stares at John for a moment, then storms out.

SCENE 4 - PANDORA?

CARRIE
You know, I'm not the only one.
There are plenty of others like me.

Show her passing another blue person in a down town area.

CARRIE
Kaltxi. Nga-ru lu fpom srak?

COURTNEY
Sìltsan!

CARRIE
I don't understand why people
aren't more accepting. This is
really for the best.

Show her in woods chasing animals and prancing.

CARRIE (CONT.)
It's a life choice. I'm not
crazy. They just don't understand.

In woods tries to make a bond with a random bird or
something.

SCENE 5 - INTERVENTION

Carrie is in the interview room.

VOICE BEHIND CAMERA
We have a surprise for you.

CARRIE
Oh, really?

Zoom out to show entire room. Family and friends enter.

CARRIE (CONT.)
No. No, no, no.

JOHN
Carrie. We love you.

CARRIE (CONT.)
No! Kehe, skxawng! Pxasik!

Carrie runs out of room. Family and friends follow after.

JOHN
Carrie, come back! We love you! We
just want what's best for you!
(etc.)

Group gets outside to find her flying away on a great
leonopteryx.

ALEX
(whispered) Toruk Makto…
