Summary

The official tie-in to the DreamWorks film starring Kevin Spacey and Annette Bening, directed by Sam Mendes (The Blue Room, Cabaret)?"Big buzz, fine cast, hot director"-Entertainment Weekly. "This is probably one of the first scripts I have done that didn't go through a rewrite. I believe Steven Spielberg read it on a Saturday night, and on Monday morning he said, 'Let's make this movie and not change a word.' "said Academy Award® winner Kevin Spacey in an interview about the movie in which he stars with Oscar® nominee, Annette Bening (The Grifters). The original screenplay by Alan Ball (TV's Cybill) marks the directorial debut of award-winning theater director Sam Mendes (The Blue Room, Cabaret), who describes the script in this book's introduction as 'a highly inventive black comedy...a mystery story with a genuine final twist...a kaleidoscopic journey through American suburbia, and a hugely visually articulate one at that." In the Newmarket Shooting Script format, here is the complete shooting script, a fascinating essay about the script and the making of the film by Sam Mendes, an afterward by screenwriter Alan Ball recalling the genesis of his script, a twelve page photo section, and complete cast and crew credits.
