Yes: screenplay and notes
To have her characters better express ideas which might be abstract or hard to digest, Potter chose to write their dialogue in verse, though such is the narrative drive and the strength of the performances that for much of the time this seems like just more lyrical version of everyday speech. She says of her choice:
"I read somewhere that in times of war the sales of poetry books go up. It's as though we need to use our most clear and rich tool, which is the tool of language, to express the subtleties and the nuances of our experience. And I think that verse is a kind of structure that allows us to explore language in a more interesting, more heightened way, then we tend to in everyday conversation."

A world within a screenplay. Beautiful on the page as on the screen, required text for anyone admitting to despair at the current times. Rich with text and image.
Review: Yes: Screenplay and NotesUser Review - Goodreads
I am a sucker for this film. Seeing the script makes me love it even more! I am a nerd for poetry. I dig on Shakespeare. I dig iambic pentameter and of course love stories, especially when the love stories are strange and vivid and steamy enough to make me want to read/watch them by my lonesome.
