A film script is what directors use to make there film what it is.

They get a bunch of different scripts from different writers or sometimes the same one and the director picks the one he likes the most.

They make the film and it goes to Hollywood to become famous.

Once there it goes into your local movie theaters and than to DVD and TV.

What do the numbers in parentheses at the end of a character description mean on a film casting breakdown?

Those number(s) indicate the page in the script that the character first appears on. They put them there so that you don't have to go searching through the whole script for the character. However, most times, when you get a breakdown from a talent agent (or casting director if an open call), they only provide the portion of the script that you need for the role you are auditioning for (these script segments are called "casting sides" or just "sides"). Rarely do you get the whole script, but it does happen on occasion.
