Noot Script

NOOT: GET WHAT YOU WANT
INT. BEDROOM – NIGHT
A WOMAN, 35, in a teddy, lies on her side in bed, head
against a satin pillow, looking off-camera. Baby-making music
plays, soft candle lighting. She’s ordinary - but soft,
supple, and sexy when glammed up. And now she’s glammed up...
flushed with the essence of afterglow.
WOMAN
It’s like you see me, you really
see me. You give me what I want and
I don’t even have to ask for it.
She’s talking to NEWT. A man whose goofy, happy, round face
(think Paul Giamatti) pops out of a green, hooded, spandex
salamander suit. Newt speaks in a deep, romantic baritone
that oozes sexy.
NEWT
I know what you need. I know the
things you need that you don’t even
know you need.
WOMAN
(enraptured)
Yes. Yes. Yes.
Another man’s voice from off camera.
MAN (O.S.)
Who you talking to, babe?
The baby-making music grinds to a halt, the light comes back
to reality.
REVEAL her HUSBAND. He sits up on the other side of the bed,
in reading glasses, covered in newspapers and magazines. He’s
35, a high school jock that’s let himself go.
MAN (CONT’D)
(tosses newspaper in the
air)
Where’s the sports section?
The woman’s changed. Back in reality. No glam. Just basic
bedtime garb. Her overnight face cream is smeared.
WOMAN
(embarrassed smile)
Oh, just my... Noot?
INSERT: As she talks, we see the woman’s finger enable menus
and news feeds pop up (Beauty and Fashion, Entertainment,
Alternative News...)
WOMAN (CONT’D)
I just tell it what my interests
are, then it feeds me all this
information that I really want.
HUSBAND
Lemme see.
(looking at her phone)
Tantric breathing?
He looks at her. She blushes, a little embarrassed.
INSERT: His finger enabling the sports and entertainment
tabs.
HUSBAND (CONT’D)
Oh, yeah, it’s easy babe. Boo-yaaa.
GRAPHIC SCREEN
NOOT: GET WHAT YOU WANT
INT. BEDROOM
The HUSBAND reads from his Noot feed.
HUSBAND
Oakland losses another reliefer!
Those bums!
He rolls out of bed, stomach hanging over his tightiewhities,
and produces an Oakland A’s baseball cap, mit and
baseball.
HUSBAND (CONT’D)
I’d go to the A’s...for twenty
million!
He winds and hurls the ball into the waiting catcher's mit of
Newt, the salamander man, now crouching in the man’s corner
of the room.
NEWT
Steeeeeeee-rike! Slider! Right down
the middle.
The wife looks over to her husband.
2.
WOMAN
(enchanted)
Oh.
He looks at her. They connect, feeling new awakenings. They
toss their smartphones to the foot of the bed.
INT. FOOT OF THE BED
Their smartphones land side by side on the Husband’s old
newspapers. The headline on the paper reads, “NOOT IS NOW!”
The husband’s smartphone plays a baseball video.
The wife’s smartphone displays a headline about the allure of
Tantric Sex.
Both phones begin vibrating.
WIDE SHOT
We pull back out of the room. Newt, sporting a big goofy
grin, walks out of the room with a wink to the camera.
Through the doorway, the couple, face-to-face, both in Lotus
position, press their hands together, their bodies shaking
and vibrating as they take deap, circular breaths.
Newt shuts the door and places a “do not disturb” sign on the
door knob. The sign has the Noot logo and reads: Noot. Get
what you want. Without even asking.
