Storyboard Text

  • Wide shot of courtroom with all three characters
  • Sir Thomas Overbury's Trial, 1615
  • I, Francis Bacon, will prove these two, Frances and Robert Carr, guilty of the murder of Thomas Overbury here in this courtroom.
  • Medium shot focused on Carr and Overbury
  • "It all began when Overbury met Carr in Edinburgh in 1601, soon becoming good friends."
  • Indeed it is, Robert!
  • Quite a lovely day outside, isn't it, Thomas, ol' chap?
  • Medium shot focused on King James and Carr
  • Oh, Robert, I can always count on a fellow like you for advice!
  • "Their relationship was sustained as Overbury's influence helped Carr rise up in King James' court."
  • Of course you can!
  • Over the shoulder shots of Carr and Overbury, following 180 degree rule
  • "However, their friendship took a turn for the worse when Carr revealed his adulterous affair with Frances Howard, of whom Overbury disapproved."
  • I would advise against that, my friend, for she has many flaws and is immodest.
  • So I met this wonderful woman, the Countess of Essex, Frances Howard.
  • Medium-close shot of Carr and Lady Essex
  • My friend, Thomas, doesn't approve of you.
  • He can't interfere with our relationship. We should do something about this!
  • "It soon became a duel between mistress and friend, and Lady Essex decided to hatch a plan to deal with Overbury."
  • Medium shot of King James and Overbury
  • "King James was instigated to offer Overbury the assignment as ambassador to Russia, which Overbury refused."
  • I implore that you become the ambassador to Russia.
  • How dare you deny my request!
  • Sorry, I have other affairs to deal with.
