SEXUAL LIFE by Ken Kwapis Draft: 08/03 "SEXUAL LIFE" FADE IN: EXT. CITY SKYLINE - DAY From an AERIAL VIEW we see the outline of a city.  Any city will do.   Mirrored high rises.  Sprawling apartment complexes.  A lot of people live  here...whoever they are. As we move closer we discover that this is not a real city at all, but a  scale model of one. Everything is in miniature -- the buildings, parks, and freeways.  GLIDING  over this tabletop metropolis, we find that none of the buildings have  roofs, allowing us to peak inside. VARIOUS CLOSE ANGLES We FLOAT through miniature coffee shops, offices, and bedrooms, where toy  figures are arranged in tableau of everyday life A man dines alone.  A woman walks her dog.  Two kiss on the street.  One  waits for a bus. Over this we HEAR Marianne Faithful's smoky-voiced cover of the standard  "When We're Alone" Just picture a penthouse Way up in the sky, With hinges on chimney For  stars to go by, A sweet slice of heaven For just you and I, When we're  alone.      From all of society We'll stay aloof, And live in propriety There on  the roof, Two heavenly hermits We'll be in true, When we're alone. As the song ends we find a miniature girl who lies on a miniature bed. CUT TO: INT. LORNA'S APARTMENT BEDROOM - DAY A cramped one-room studio.  Asleep on a futon is a slender girl of nineteen -- LORNA.  Her blood red toenails give the place its only color. An alarm  clock rings it's twelve noon.  Lorna uses her foot to turn it off.

LORNA Terri.  Why did you let me sleep so late? Lorna looks over to an empty pull-out sofa, its only occupant a skinny  kitten. LORNA (CONT'D) (cont'd) Terri? (to the cat) She must already be at work, huh? The cat meows -- very non-committal. CUT TO: INT. LORNA'S KITCHEN - DAY Still in her T-shirt and panties, Lorna opens a can of cat food as the  kitten looks on. LORNA She probably forgot what day it is, right  Arthur?  Some friend she turned out to be.  Not like you.  You remember what day it is, don't you? (off the cat's blank stare) I'm not giving you any food until you tell  me. Arthur the cat responds with a pitiful meow.  Lorna smiles and sets down  the food. LORNA (CONT'D) (cont'd) That's right.  I knew you'd remember. CUT TO OMITTED EXT. STREET - DAY Lorna, dressed casually, walks to the bus stop.  Reading the crossword  puzzle in the paper, she doesn't see the curb and trips, spilling her  purse.   Embarrassed, she gathers her things, then takes a seat next to a Latino  Woman.  Lorna smiles and resumes work on the puzzle.   Stumped by a clue, she turns to the Woman.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
