Cruel Intentions - Not so Musical
In the very first scene shown where Ronald is giving Cecile cello lessons (after the scene when Sebastian and Annette first meet), it shows the outside of a building first. You can quite clearly hear Ronald say "let's try the G major scale" . Then it focuses in on them and she's playing the G major scale. Ronald then says "try again, and remember, the third note is sharp."
The only problem? The third note isn't sharp in the G major scale.
For a guy who's writing an opera and attending Juliard, I think he should have known better.

Actually take this from someone who plays cello. When you're playing the G major scale and starting on the open string, your third note is not technically sharp but you do ned to stretch your finger further so it doesn't become a B flat so therefore you're sharpening the B flat which you would normally play.

It actually depends on how he wants her to play it. HE could have meant a Concert G Major scale in which she probably had to transpose. I don't know much about string instruments but I do play the trumpet and I know that you have to transpose up a second which makes our 3rd note, a C, sharp.

I just thought I'd share this with you. In the "original script" of Cruel Intentions (link below): RONALD: "Now let's try the A minor scale... Once more, and remember the third note is flat" Fact: There are no flats or sharps in A minor scale.
