Allure (2017) Script

Hello?


Not a word.


Come on.

You're no good to me if you can't get hard.

Just slow down a bit, okay?

Yeah.

Put it in!

Come on!

Fuck!

Fuck!

Oh God!

Ow... easy!

Jesus!

What the fuck?

Fuck hell! Jesus fucking...

Ow! Fuck! Fuck!

What the hell's wrong with you, you crazy bitch!

What the fuck?

Jesus!

You're soft again.

Where's my fucking jacket?

Fuck!

Fucking faggot!

What did you say?

Better watch your fucking mouth!


So, it's mainly our two bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Uh, this one, which is a disaster.

The other one is an en suite in my room.

Um, this is the spare room.

Not much to clean in here.

And this. And this is my daughter's.

Pianos, have you ever cleaned them?

Yes. Eva.

Could you stop for a second, please? I'll go get it.

Hello.

Hi!

You play really well.

Beautifully, actually.

Thank you.

I'm Laura.

Eva.

Here it is.


Uh, I'm all done.

Okay!

Is your room all right? Everything how you like it?

Yeah! Yeah, it's, uh, nice and clean.

Thanks. No problem!

Bye. I'll see you soon.

Okay, bye.

I really like your poster, by the way.

Oh! Thanks!

It's funny, I wouldn't have thought that you were a Nirvana fan, with all the classical music you were playing before.

The classical playing is just a thing I have to do right now.

Oh, okay.

God, could you imagine seeing them live?

It would be really intense!

It'd be crazy.

I have goosebumps just thinking about it.

Bye!

Anyone else would be fired for this.

I should fire you.

Or take you out of cleaning altogether... keep you in accounting.

You don't seem to bother anyone in there.

Well, you don't need me full-time in accounting.

I'm sorry.

You're always sorry.

I mean...

I just wanna know what you were thinking.

How did you honestly think this one was gonna end?

Happily?

Did you think about me for a second, about how this could affect me and my business?

No, I guess not. No, I guess not!

You know what? I've asked you before to leave my employees out of whatever it is you do out there.

Well, she'll be happy to know that I find her repulsive now.

Honey, I wish you found more people repulsive.

Like you?

Tell me, are you gonna take a few days off?

Because I have to make sure I do the schedule this week.

I don't know. Maybe just in the morning...


Are you okay? Hmm?

Are you okay? Oh, yeah, yeah!

You better jump in there before it's all gone.

Uh, that looks burnt.

It is! That's the best part!

Just the middle one. This side isn't burnt.

Don't forget you promised us...

Good time! Yeah, huh?

I'll give you a ride next time. Yeah!

We had a great night.

Thank you so much. Thank you!

Thanks for the invite. Of course!

Take care! Be safe.

See you at the office. Bye, Laura!

Bye, guys.

You okay to drive?

Yeah.

You sure? Yes.

Why don't I give you a ride home?

I'll be all right.

No, I'll drive you back in the morning, and you could pick up your car.

I'm fine.

Why, are you, uh... you meeting somebody now?

I'm going home. Ah!

Dad, can I have a couple of smokes for the road?

Oh, sure!

Oh, I can give you four.

Thanks.

Okay, well, do your stops. A lot of cops around here.

Yeah? Mm-hmm.

Okay.

Good night. Good night.


Everyone clapped.

We both know you've played better.

Let's go.


Hey, you!

Hi!

Happy to see you.

Me too.

No, no! Leave 'em on. I'm almost done.


It's chilly today, right? Yeah, it's getting cold.

Don't worry. It's not as strong as last time.

I have to practice later.


Lean back.

Thanks!

Wow, this is nice!

I know... did a great job. Mm-hmm!

When are they gonna paint Eva's room?

Mm, this weekend, probably.

I chose a great color for you.

This is so exciting! Yeah, I know.

It's finally happening!

What are we gonna do with the spare room?


I don't wanna move into that shithole with him.

What did you just say?

You heard me.

Teenage angst doesn't suit you.

Do you actually think that he loves you?

That's enough!

He doesn't. He's just like... He has a name!

Use it!

David is just like all the other ones, and when he dumps you, you're gonna regret doing any of this!

You listen to me.

When you're 18, I will be the last one stopping you from moving out.

In the meantime, you're 16, stuck with me and David, so deal with it!

You're a selfish bitch!

I have a right to be happy, goddammit!

So do I!


Eva?

Oh my God!

You okay? What happened?

Nothing.

Did you and your mom get in a fight?

I hate her!

What happened?

I'm moving.

The house sold.

It's really happening.

It's so unfair! Shh! Come here!

I know.

Don't cry, sweetie.

I don't wanna move there.

I know.

You don't have to do anything you don't wanna do.

You have don't to let your mothr make your decisions for you or control your life.

Well, I can... I can't just... tell her I'm not going.

You don't have to tell her anything.


Hey!

You made it!

You have a lot of clothes.

Well, what's mine is yours!

Here, try that on.

Um... yeah, I think these pants are too small on me, but, um, they might work for you. Thanks!

Just take off those rags, settle in!

Um, I'll make us a drink. Okay.


What's funny?

Uh, nothing. I just.

I find you fit in so well here, just... sitting there like that in my house.

Oh!

Really?

Yeah, it's kind of crazy. You just seem really, um, familiar to me.

Hmm! Cool!

I like your place. It's really cool.

Thanks!

I tried to make it nice inside, but I kind of hate this neighborhood, it's so boring.

So? Do you feel amazing right now?

Um, yeah. I... I feel different, I think, somehow.

But, like, in a good way, right?

Yeah! Yeah.

You know, you really did the right thing coming here.

Yeah.

Just happy I could help you out.

Cheers!


That was amazing!

Oh my God! You were going so fast!

I know! I think I won, though. Yeah, I'm pretty sure you did.

It's so funny. I never would've thought I liked go-karting.

Thank you so much for bringing me.

It's no problem.

After you.

Sweetie, you're all knots.

That's where you hold all your stress.

Right there. You feel how hard it is?

Yeah.

Just relax now.

I don't think sleeping on the sofa is gonna help these knots.

You should share my bed with me tonight.

You'll be more comfortable.

You sure? Yeah, totally.

I want you to get good rest.

You deserve it.

Okay.

Just, um, come in when you're done.


I'm really glad you're here.

Me too.

Goodnight.


Okay, well, it used to be, um, Diane.

And then, recently, it got handed over to Laura.

Hi! Morning!

Morning!

Get any sleep?

Not much. Yeah.

Hey, Margaret!

Hi, Will! Hey, uh, do you have a second to come to my office?

Yeah. Great.

How are you?

Fine. Good.

Um, there's a detective who wants to ask you some questions.

What about? I have no idea. Do you?

No.

Uh, this is Laura.

Hi, Laura. Hi!

Detective Dozier. Pleased to meet you.

Nice to meet you.

Could you give us a minute, please?

Oh, I thought I was supposed to be here.

No, we're gonna be okay.

Oh, okay! Thanks.

So Laura, I understand you're the cleaner at the Lansdowne residence? Yeah, that's right.

We're investigating the disappearance of their daughter, Eva.

When was the last time you saw her?

Oh my God! Um... four or five days ago. Last time I cleaned.

Did you guys ever have any conversations about her personal life? Did she ever mention that she was in any trouble, she was unhappy?

No, uh, she really kept to herself. We barely spoke.

You sure?

Yeah.

If anything else comes up, feel free to give me a call.

Sure.

Any information could help us in the investigation.

Of course. All right, thank you very much.

Thank you. Have a good day.

All good?

It's fine. Yeah, good.

Excuse me, Mr. Drake?

Uh-huh? Could I get a minute with you now? Of course.


Sorry.


Hey, Eva!

Hi!

Uh, can you come in here for a sec?

Hey!

How was your day?

It was okay. You?

It was pretty good!

Yeah?

What did you do? Did you, uh, go out at all, for a walk or anything?

No. No, I just... I stayed in here and read my book.

You didn't talk to anybody? My neighbors in the back or...

No! No, nobody.

What's wrong?

Um... a police officer came to see me today, looking for you. But it's okay. I took care of it.

What did he say to you? What did he want?

Don't worry. I didn't say anything.

Yeah, but why... Why did he go see you?

I guess because I clean your mom's house. I don't know.

But it's fine!

So the police are looking for me. That's serious!

It doesn't have to be.

Do you think I should call my mom or...

And tell her what?

I... I don't know, that I'm okay and not to worry about me.

And?

And what?

I don't know. I think she's gonna be pretty fucking curious about where you are and where the hell you've been!

Yeah, but I'll just...

I won't tell her, and I'll go home and that'll be it, and the police will stop looking for me. Jesus fucking Christ!

I shouldn't have said anything.

I just lied to the police for you!

I'm on record saying that I don't know anything about you, and I have no idea where you are.

And you're 16. Do you know what that means?

No.

It means I'll be in serious fucking shit if anybody finds out that you're here with me!

But I just won't tell them. I'll make something up!

Eva you can't just make shit up to the police, all right!

They'd never believe you! How do you know?

Who listens to anything that you have to say?

Your mother? Her boyfriend? Fucking anyone?

No, nobody listens to what you have to say, except me.

And that's the truth.

I lied for you.

To protect you.

So, no, I'm sorry.

You're not fucking calling anyone!

Here you go.

You like this song?

Yeah.

I love it.

I think there's still some left in here.

You want some?

Uh, sure.

Here, I'm done.

You can take another.

Just finish it off.

Here.

There you go.

That's it. That's it.

Yeah.

I should call my mom.

Dad?

Yeah, um, I don't think I can come in to work today.

I feel really sick.

Yeah, I know, but Susan can do it.

Today? I thought that was tomorrow.

Well...

Yeah, I know.

I know.

All right.

All right, fine.

Yeah, I'm coming.


Okay...

keep going down.

No, no. here.

Scroll down.

Okay, thanks.

I can't believe these bastards are auditing us again.

Are you feeling any better than this morning?

Yeah, I'm fine. Good.

Okay. Send me that file when you're done, okay?

Okay.

What was that?


Laura?

Laura?

Laura!

Laura!

Come on! Laura!

Laura?


Eva?

Laura?

Yeah, Eva. Eva, it's me.

What am I doing in here? Let me... Let me out!

I'm gonna let you out right now, okay?

Just calm down. Please!

There's nothing to worry about.

I'm gonna explain everything, okay?

Okay.

Just back away from the door, okay?

Okay.

Hey, you.

Why... Why did you put me in here?

Because you were really out of it, and I just wanted to make sure we had a chance to talk.

So you locked me in a room?

Just so I could get back and we could talk.

Talk about what? Let me out!

Okay, wait. You really need to calm down okay.

Everything's fine! I...

How do you feel?

Do you feel like you understand what we're a part of now?

I... I don't wanna be in here!

Okay, but I really need to hear from you that you understand.

I understand that I need to leave, okay?

So, please, Laura! Laura, please!

What are you doing?

You still need to be in here.

What are you talking about?

I understand that you're confused.

I'm not confused about anything! I know it's a lot to process, but it's okay. I wanna get out!

Eva, I told you that I would be in serious fucking trouble with the police if they found out you were here, and you didn't care!

I'll go to jail if they find out what I did to help you!

Jail, Eva!

So, you get it now, or is that what you want?

Is that what you want?

Answer me! Is that what you fucking want?

No!

No!

You made a choice.

You made a choice to come here.

And I cannot be the only one that has to suffer the fucking consequences!

Laura! Laura!

Laura!

Laura!

I'm sorry.


Hello. Oh!

Um, no, I don't need the house to be cleaned right now.

Okay.

Should I come back another time?

I don't know. Not for a while.

Tell your boss that, okay? Not for a while.

Sure.

I, uh...

I heard about what happened... and I'm really sorry.

Thank you.


I... I was wondering if I could give you some, um... missing posters of my daughter?

Our time's up with the police and, uh, their help.

So I thought maybe you could hand them out to the people you work with?

Yeah, of course.

She's... She's just a runaway to them.

They're not looking for her anymore?

No.

That's... That's terrible.

Thank you.


Hey.

Hey. Hey, you.

No more of this tension between us.

Okay?

It's poison.

Let's just start over.

I can be...

a total wreck sometimes.

And I know that I fucked up.

And I'm so sorry.

It's just because you're so precious... and I can't imagine my life without you.

We're soulmates.


Okay, almost.

What are you doing? You'll see!

All right, sit.

This is so weird. Keep them closed.

Open 'em.

A keyboard?

Surprise!

No way! Thank you!

You like it?

Yeah! Yeah, totally!

I figured you needed something to play on.

Wow!

You are so nice.

I really want you to be happy here.

I am.

You missed.

Let me try it?

Yeah!


Whoo! Look at you, sexy beast!

You're hilarious.

This is gonna be so much fun.

You like having a sugar mama that buys you things?

Yes, thank you.

Okay, you're the only one that could talk me into doing something this ridiculous.

Come on! Loosen up, big mama!

Big mama?

I mean sugar mama!

Okay, let me see!

Beautiful!

Mm! Who wants a slice?

I'm gonna finish this first!

Wow, we got homemade cake! We got sushi! Living the life!

I wish they had shit like this where I'm staying right now.

It's seems like they got the same shit every two weeks.

You don't like where you live? It's all right.

It's temporary until I get my own place.

Yeah, it's like a glorified hospital.

It's not that bad.

Well, it's not this!

I think I should know. I'm the one stuck there.

Anyway, they got these nurses there.

The worst part is they just hired dogs!

It's nothin' but fat chicks wearing pajamas and Crocs.

These ladies take good care of people, but, fuck!

Who with an ounce of self-respect goes out in public wearing Crocs? Yeah! They're so ugly!

Right? It's, like, take some care of yourself!

Fuck, seriously!

They're actually really comfortable.

What? I used to work in Crocs.

Really?

They're slip-resistant.

Laura, fuck!

Slip-resistant?

Yo, I should rap about that shit!

Don't.

Uh...

I didn't know you could rap.

No?

Laura didn't tell you about me, about her all-star big brother?

No!

Uh, yeah. Yeah, I rap a bit.

You like hip hop?

Yeah. Yeah, of course I do.

Since when?

Since, I don't know, a while.

Cool! What kind of shit you like?

Uh, I don't really know the names.

I just know I like the music.

I tell you what, I make you a mixtape.

Thanks!

Hey, wait! You ever play in a band?

Me? No. No.

Well, I'm sayin', you play piano, I write rhymes, we should fucking make some dope shit together!

Yeah! That... That'd be awesome!

Right! I'll come by next week.

We'll jam some shit out!

Yeah! That would be so cool.

I've always wanted to be in a band!

What? What stupid ideas?

That was the last time you ever fucking come over here!

What the fuck are you talking about?

She doesn't listen to rap music, okay?

And she doesn't wanna be in a stupid fucking band with you! What are you her mom or something? We were just talking!

Relax. You're not black, so stop trying to sound like you are! And you're not a fuckin' teenager, so maybe you should date someone your own age!

Fuck you!

Yeah, happy birthday, sister!

Thanks for an unforgettable evening!

Laura!

You have no fucking respect for me!

What are you talking about? You know exactly what I'm talking about. You ignored me all night!

You and my stupid fucking brother!

What?

I do everything for you!

I do everything for you! It's my fucking birthday!

Laura, calm down!

What do you think you're gonna do, huh?

You gonna start a band? No.

Start singing fucking rap music?

Are you out of your fucking mind?

Why wouldn't I?

Because I say what you can and cannot do! That's why!


Laura?

No! Oh, God!

I'm so stupid!

I'm so stupid! I'm so stupid!


Ah! You're pretty when you laugh!

Ah!

I mean, I think you're pretty all the time, but...

I think you're beautiful... actually.


Go harder.


Ow!

Oh God!

Ow! Ow!

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry.

It's okay.


Hey, bitch!

God!

Get her!

Remember me?

No! You fucking bitch!

Ow! Fuck!

Grab her!

No!

No!


Laura?


Right here.

Oh God!

I'm sorry.

It's over there. Yeah, I see it.


Are you sure you don't know who they were?

Yeah.

How about I just drive you home...

and get you settled in?

I'm okay. I just need to rest.

I could make you something, if you want.

You don't have to cook, you know?

I just need to be alone right now.


Don't forget your pills.

Thank you.

I'd kill those bastards if I could, Laura.

I would goddamn kill them!

Thank you for the lift.

Okay.

I'll, uh, I'll call you later.

Okay.


Laura?

Oh my God!

I'm okay. Laura, what happened?

I'm okay.

You don't look okay!

I just need to sit down.

Could you get me some water?

Yeah! Yeah, of course!

Thank you.

Laura, please tell me what happened.

I was in... the hospital because I got beaten up.

By who?

By my...

By my dad.

What?

Why?

Because he tried to touch me.

Touch you.

And I wouldn't let him.

Touch you how?

In a way that... a father's not supposed to touch his own daughter.

Oh my God!

And I just don't understand, you know, because I thought that that stopped a long time ago.

What did he do?

I had to go to my dad's house.

I was showing him something on the computer.

And then he tried to...

but I wouldn't let him.

And so he hit me, and he wouldn't stop.

How did you get away? How did you get to the hospital?

I don't wanna talk about this anymore.

Did... Did you call the police? No.

How come? Look what he did to you!

No. It's finished, okay?

I don't want to.

He can't get away with this.

Laura! He can't get away... I don't wanna call anybody.

...with this. Please okay.

You need to call the police! I don't wanna call the fucking police, okay? Just stop!

I'm sorry.

I don't have anybody else in the world, okay?

Just you.

Will you please take care of me? Please?

Yeah, of course. Of course. Of course.

You're my angel. Oh God!


You're almost done with that inventory?

Mm-hmm.

Wanna give it to me?

Thanks.

Oh!

Are you ready for tonight?

I... I can't make it tonight.

Why not?

'Cause I already got plans.

What are they?

Nothing.

Tell me!

Stop prying.

Well, as your father, I'm naturally curious about what you're doing.

Really? At my age, is that natural?

Yes, I think so.

Well, don't think too hard. You might hurt yourself.

Yeah!

Uh... no, tomorrow's fine.

Yeah, tomorrow, but not next week.

Right? Tomorrow. Yeah, just tell them that.

Okay.

All right, bye.

She's my lover. Sorry?

I can't go tonight because I'm having dinner with my lover. Your lover?

Yeah.

Hard to imagine, isn't it? No, it's just, it sounds so serious when you say it like that.

Well, it is.

And believe it or not, she really loves me too.

I'm sure she does.

And we live together. Oh, you live together!

How long have you even known each other?

Long enough. How come I didn't know about this? Why the fuck would you?

I mean, what kind of trouble have you gotten yourself into now? I haven't gotten myself into anything! No?

You mean you didn't have to stalk this one?

Fuck you! Laura!

No fuck you! Shh. Be quiet!

Keep your voice down. What is this...

What is this about, huh? Are you jealous?

Why would I... Are you jealous that I found someone? Why would I be goddamn jealous?

I'm worried is what I am! What are you worried about?

What do you think I'm worried about?

Come in here. Look it is no business of yours what I do in my own home.

Oh yes? Your home?

You'd be on the goddamn street if I didn't buy that home for you!

Okay, you know what?

Fuck you and fuck this job!

So I quit!

Good!

Run away like you always do!


Here you go. Oh God!

This looks amazing.

I hope it's good.

Thank you for making this.

Cheers!

Cheers!

This is so nice.

Who's that?

I have no idea.

Shit!

Who is it? It's my dad.

What the fuck does he want?

I don't know. Just give me two seconds, okay?

Hi, sweetie.

What the hell are you doing here?

Yeah, I... I tried to call but, I guess you're a little busy.

You know goddamn well I'm busy! I know, I know.

What are you doing here?

I'm really sorry about the argument we had and the things that I said. That was stupid, stupid idiotic things.

I don't care about your apology, and I don't take back what I said.

Are you done now? Laura, please!

Just give me a second, please. I have something else to say.

And I'm very sorry to bring this up now... but...

I can't bear the weight of it anymore, and, um, I think it's eating us alive.

And...

I...

I...

I live with guilt and remorse every single day.

Those things that happened between us should never, ever have happened, and I want to apologize to you.

Are you fucking with me? No, of course not!

Why are you doing this now?

Why now, when you know I have someone over?

There's never a good time for something like this.

Oh no, this is...

Definitely the absolute worst fucking time!

I'm sorry, angel. I didn't mean to ruin your evening, I promise.

Bullshit! I just... Laura, please!

I need to say this.

I am sorry!

I am sorry!

I am sorry!

Do you think you could ever forgive me?

Are you okay?

I'm fine. Just give me a minute, okay? You don't look okay.

I'm fine.

We're trying to have a private conversation.

Please. What do you want?

Eva. What are you...

What are you doing here? Actually, I need to speak with my daughter. Please! Why don't you just leave her alone! Okay. Haven't you done enough damage?

Excuse me? You're a fucking pervert!

Eva! What?

Oh!

Jesus Christ!

Don't you ever disrespect my father like that again!

I was just trying to help you. I don't need your fucking help!

Dad! Dad!

I don't know what I was thinking...

I shouldn't have come here like this.


This is shit.

All of this is shit.

And you don't deserve any of it.


You don't deserve any of this either.

You don't.


Where are you going? Just getting some water.


Come here.


I just need to feel your warmth.


Eva!


Everybody, please get out of the pool.

Eva!

Eva!


Laura!

Come in!

I'm not staying.

Well, okay. I wasn't expecting you.

Are you okay?

I'm alone.

I'm... completely alone.

And I'm okay with that.

I will be.

But I don't want anything anymore, and, uh...

I don't want anybody around me.

'Cause I can't do it anymore.

Honey!
