Golden Globe Winner for Best Screenplay is No Country for Old Men - posted by Don

Golden Globe Winner for Best Screenplay is Joel Coen and Ethan Coen for “No Country for Old Men”.

No Country for Old Men – undated, unspecified (probably shooting) draft script by Joel Coen and Ethan Coen (based on the novel by Cormac McCarthy) – hosted by: Miramax Films – in pdf format. Read also, in browser friendly text format, thanks to Weekly script, and Early draft and the Shooting draft of the script.

Llewlyn Moss (Josh Brolin), hunting antelope near the Rio Grande, stumbles upon a drug transaction gone horribly wrong. Finding bullet-ridden bodies, several kilos of heroin, and a caseload of cash, he faces a choice – leave the scene as he found it, or cut the money and run. Choosing the latter, he knows, will change everything. And so begins a terrifying chain of events, in which each participate seems determined to answer the question that one asks another: how does a man decide in what order to adandon his life?

just saw no country for old men; it’s unassumingly unconventional and yet (thankfully) never over the top. the Coen brothers deserve their oscars, well done indeed.
