I'll be shooting a short film soon.
An need advice on rights related questions.
In my script there's a couple on a cafe, and their V.O. are random dialogues from 2 books, published more than a century ago, classic romances.
In the end of film you realize the actors are reading, not "thinking".. But the passages are not clearly identified with names, characters or anything from the books.
I'd like to know if I would be able to make "fair use" of these passages, since they're not staging anything related to the matter of their words, or either from the book.
Any help or advice very much appreciated.
