  1. 1. CHANGE BY Joseph Zayan an original screenplay FAC 2022 02075860312
  2. 2. Created using Celtx 1 1 INT. NOAH'S BEDROOM.EVENING. 'The Biggest Lie' by Elliott Smith plays. A messy bedroom. There are clothes on the ground, cardboard boxes around, and an open suitcase on the floor. NOAH-(17) a teenage boy with bleached blond hair and of medium height- takes clothes from his closet and sets them neatly folded in the suitcase. This is a boring task that he clearly does not want to do. His facial expressions indicate exhaustion and irritation. He sits down on the floor, next to the suitcase, resting his back on the side of the bed, and puts his face in his hands with a sigh. 2 2 EXT.PRIMROSE HILL. DAY NOAH stands atop of Primrose Hill, overlooking the horizon, and smoking a cigarette. Music bridges. TITLE OF FILM: 'CHANGE' appears on screen. TITLE OF FILM fades out. Another young man, HUGO- (17) dark blond hair, wearing a school uniform-, walks up to Noah and joins him. We can only see the back of Noah and Hugo as they stare out at the distance. HUGO Hey. They go in for a quick handshake. I'm surprised. Skipping school? That's not like you. NOAH Shut up. NOAH takes a toke of his cigarette. My mum moved forwards the dates for the train, so... I have to leave tomorrow instead of next week. HUGO What? Are you fucking kidding me?
  3. 3. 2. Created using Celtx NOAH I wish i was mate. HUGO What the fuck is wrong with her? Fuck this. NOAH shrugs and takes another toke of his cigarette. The cigarette crackles. Hugo is visibly upset and sits down on the grass. HUGO So, it's your last day here then? NOAH Guess so. HUGO Jesus. This is shit. NOAH then sits down next to HUGO. He offers him his cigarette. HUGO takes it and inhales. NOAH is transfixed on HUGO. A beat. He hands the cigarette back to NOAH, who finishes it and tosses it. They both sit in silence for a moment, looking out to the distance, then looking at each other. HUGO You know- funniest thing happened. So I got your text, and Ms Edwards caught me jumping the school gate, right. So she tried to run after me, but she got stuck in the gate and she was just cursing at me. It was fucking hilarious. You should've seen her face man. They both laugh and NOAH shakes his head. They share a look. NOAH You should've recorded it for me. HUGO Nah it was better in person, the camera wouldn't've done it justice. NOAH [Chuckling] If I had known I wouldn't have missed it.
  4. 4. 3. Created using Celtx HUGO She's so fit though. Kinda wished I recorded it now. had NOAH Ahh shut up mate, that's gross. HUGO Yeah but I'd definitely bone her. You gotta admit you'd tap that. NOAH pushes him subtly. NOAH Stop thaaat. She's like twice your age. HUGO What, like you wouldn't bone... Mike's mum? NOAH Everyone'd bone Mike's mum. A beat, as they slowly stop laughing. NOAH Right, let's go. NOAH stands up. HUGO joins him. 3 3 EXT. DAY. 'London' by The Smiths plays. It is daytime. The two characters have their backs turned to the camera and are walking. 4 4 EXT. DAY Cuts to another scene where the characters still have their backs turned. In this scene, HUGO is skating and NOAH is walking next to him. 5 5 EXT. EVENING. Cuts to another scene, the characters still have their backs turned. It is slowly becoming darker outside. This time NOAH is attempting to skate and HUGO is helping him.
  5. 5. 4. Created using Celtx 6 6 EXT. NIGHT. Cuts to another scene again, they are both walking now and NOAH is smoking. They are walking down a park in London. 7 7 EXT. NIGHT. Cuts to when they are still walking, and they get to a door. It is HUGO's house. HUGO takes his keys and opens it while NOAH observes. Music bridges. 8 8 INT. HUGO'S BEDROOM. LATE EVENING/NIGHT. A typical teenage bedroom: there are posters and photographs on the wall, clothes on the floor, a messy desk, rubbish, instruments (including a drum set and an electric bass). It is night time outside. The boys are sitting on the bed. There are bottles of beer and they have clearly drank a little bit. NOAH [Nodding his head to the guitar] You ever play this? [He stands up as he says this, and grabs the guitar, after putting his drink down.] I've known you for what... Six years? and I've never seen you play it. HUGO [Chuckles] I guess I do sometimes. It's embarrassing to start now [shrugging]. NOAH [Laughs] Sure... [Sits back down, holding guitar.] NOAH attempts to play something, but it sounds horrible. HUGO starts to laugh at him and grimaces. HUGO Jesus Christ, please stop. NOAH Maybe in another life I could be a rockstar. Call me Robert Smith. HUGO I'm good g, [ruffles his hair] you don't have the hair.
  6. 6. 5. Created using Celtx NOAH Fair point. HUGO Right, give me that. I don't trust you with it. HUGO takes the guitar and places it on the floor. They slowly stop chuckling and continue their drinks. A beat. NOAH [Looking around the room] Aw man... this is kind of the last time I'll ever be here. HUGO What do you mean? NOAH Like, in your room. It's kind of the last time I'll be here. HUGO What? You better come and visit. NOAH I will, you know I will. It just... won't be the same, will it? HUGO takes another sip of his beer. Tension builds up. HUGO Do you ever feel scared? Of like, the future and that. NOAH [Looking down at his drink] Don't even start. I don't even wanna believe that it's real you know? HUGO I get you. I really don't want you to leave. I'm not just saying that. NOAH I don't wanna leave either. I don't wanna become a doctor, you know? I don't know why my parents are so obsessed with this idea that I can be something great. I'll have a whole new life and I think I should be grateful
  7. 7. 6. Created using Celtx for it, but I really don't want it. I don't wanna be a fucking doctor. And I don't wanna live with my family and I don't wanna leave London, and I don't wanna have to get used to a whole other city and make new friends and...I don't wanna leave you. Everything's gonna change. HUGO It doesn't have to. NOAH But it will. 'Perfect Day' by Lou Reed plays in the background. They look at each other for a moment. Subtle tension. NOAH finishes his beer and places it on the side. Then, he lies down on the bed. HUGO copies him. They share a look. HUGO I'll miss you, you know? NOAH I'll miss you too. NOAH places his head on HUGO's shoulder. 9 9 CREDITS PLAY Actor 1 Actor 2 Film director Film editor Music credits Music stops.
