Quick pitch

It is 1963. Avery Marrvis is a capricious and charismatic young woman living in New York and working as a clothing buyer for the department store, Wanamaker's. She lives for Givenchy and Chanel, though she rarely has the money to buy it. She surrounds herself with a line of characters as eccentric as she, attending and hosting parties frequently. Avery meets a wandering and wayfaring painter from London, Daniel Grant. He becomes immediately mesmerized by her and falls deeply in love with her.

Avery (CONT'D)
(growing angrier)
You think that I am like every other American girl you've met - that I want some boy to come swooping in to save me and that I want it to be you, but I don't! I don't want anybody to save me because I don't need saving! I have had thick skin since before the first grade, Grant, and I just can't have a man with as thin a skin as the wrapping on a 100 Grand.
(softening)
I need a man I can sleep back to back with at night. I need a man who can stand my ferocity and find it endearing. I need a man who isn't as empty as me, Grant. And you're empty as ever.
