SCREEN TEST
Lisa and Julie are talking in the waiting room at the Doctors. Julie is curious about what Lisa gets out of drug use. Lisa masks her feelings of failure with partying, but finds it hard to explain this to her worker. Julie notices Lisa’s artistic flair and encourages her to check out a community group to build some self confidence.

Lisa and Julie sit in a waiting room of a doctor's office together. Lisa is dressed in bright colours with matching nail polish, red lipstick and her hair done up nicely. Lisa sits and taps her leg, examining her nails.

LISA
I had such a big night last night.

JULIE
Oh yeah? What are we talking about here?

LISA
Just got so f***ed up. I went to go hang out with Jimmy and his friends and we were smoking ice at his place. It was so much fun.

JULIE
Oh okay. Is that what you guys normally do?

LISA
Yeah usually. Oh man, so much fun.

Lisa seems proud of herself and Julie pauses for a moment.

JULIE
What is it like for you? Taking drugs?

LISA
Huh?

JULIE
What does it feel like- for you? I'm curious, from your point of view, what makes it so good?

LISA
I dunno... it’s fun. Helps me forget stuff I guess.

JULIE
You want to forget stuff?

LISA
Yeah. You know my sister's going to graduate soon? That’ll never be me.

JULIE
Why do you think that?

LISA
She's so smart and annoying. My parents think she’s perfect. Not like me.

JULIE
And how do you feel about her graduating?

LISA
Oh she's a bitch. Whatever.

JULIE
Do you still speak to your parents often? Or your sister?

LISA
Nah, They don’t want to talk to me anymore. I like partying. I like Jimmy.

JULIE
I know you've got your friends, but do you miss your family since moving out?

LISA
I don't want to talk about it. It doesn't matter.

Lisa trails off and looks at a man standing in the distance.

Oh, he is so hot! Look! Don't you think?

JULIE
Over there?

LISA
Yeah. I think he's looking at me, is my makeup okay?

Lisa sits up straight and adjusts her clothes, with her eye on the man in the distance.

JULIE
Your makeup looks great. Actually, you know I've noticed your makeup always looks amazing, such good colours! You're clearly really good at it.

Lisa pauses as if to think about that.

JULIE
Yeah, I've noticed you've got such an eye for colour. Like your nails and lipstick are always matching. And your outfits are always so nice and colourful! You must have a real artistic flair, don't you think?

LISA
I guess. I like colours.

JULIE
Have you ever done any other artsy stuff?

LISA
Not really. Just messed around a bit at school.
