In just a few short years, A24 Films has made a name for itself as a distributor of provocative, character-driven films. Now they are making their case for this year's awards season, providing screenplays for several of their releases this year for your consideration including Ex Machina, The End of the Tour, While We're Young, Mississippi Grind, Slow West, and Remember.
A24 will likely make its biggest awards push for its upcoming release Room, which has been receiving rave reviews from the fall festival circuit, but we'll have to wait a little longer to see the script for that film. For now, let's take a look at the trailers for each of the films mentioned above before we get to their screenplay links.

The End of the Tour chronicles the story of Rolling Stone reporter David Lipsky's interview with author David Foster Wallace. Here's the trailer:
