Notes on "I Will Love You Always"
A friend once told me about a cousin of
his who was a nurse and who had a boyfriend die of a heart attack,
which was odd because he was a professional athlete; and who had a
second boyfriend end their relationship to become a priest.
I am not telling the story as well as he
did; as he told it, one had to wonder if the second boyfriend became a
priest because he learned about the first boyfriend's heart attack.
One day, I was thinking about this
cousin and thought, "What if?"
What if instead of a man leaving a woman
and becoming a priest because she might have killed her previous lover,
a man left the priesthood for a woman and then found out she had killed
a previous lover?
Dang. He'd be screwed, wouldn't he?
In accordance with what has become a
pattern, the first draft came quickly, allowing multiple rewrites
before I shot it in April, 2005.
The version of the script presented here
re-inserts a line that I had deleted when I shot the film, when Frank
expresses his frustration at being interrupted by saying, "This is like
I had deleted it because I thought it
was too esoteric: only a very few people would know that in Ephesians,
a book of the New Testatment, the author interrupts himself several
times to go off on tangents. I've re-inserted the line because that is
the kind of thing that a priest, in particular, would know - and
because an audience could get the feeling of the line without knowing
the details behind it.
