The Daughter (2015) Movie Script

Put that thing
out of its misery,
will you, Peterson?
You're a good man, Peterson.
Give my regards to the family.
Yep. Thanks.
You'll be right. Good girl.
the mill is going to close.
We lost our last contract
on Friday.
I don't really have any choice.
So how long have we got?
It'll be the end of the month.
It's a very generous
redundancy package.
You're just giving up
on the town, are ya?
We've explored every possible
option. There's no way out.
What about old Dave?
He's 61 years old.
What's he supposed to do?
It's never too late
to start again.
You should hang your head
in shame!
Shame on you, nielson!
Look, this mill
has been in my family
for well over 100 years.
I do understand your shock.
I'm sorry.
We'll all just have to try
and hold our heads up high
and move on.
What's it been - 15, 16 years?
You know, I don't remember.
Different place,
now your father's
shut the mill down.
Where's everyone moving to?
Depends on where
they can get jobs.
Your dad said you got married.
Yeah. Yeah, I did.
You got kids yet?
No. No, no kids.
Tables here,
dance floor down there.
- Yes.
- Now,
what have you decided
about the lights?
- They'll rig this...
- Now, do you think
that this floor is
a little bit uneven?
- I don't think so.
- Slippery though, right?
Now, we've decided no
with the ribbons.
Flowers are going to be here,
but tomorrow...
- Christian!
- Hi.
It's lovely to meet you.
It's lovely to meet you too.
Come on,
I'll show you to your room.
I have an appointment
with the florist in ten.
You probably want to settle in
It's been hectic here
this week.
I know this might be
a bit weird for you,
and I just wanted to say, I
really appreciate you coming,
and I know that it means a lot
to your father.
Good flight?
Yeah, it was fine.
You hungry?
I'll make you a sandwich.
Since when
do you make sandwiches?
I've always made sandwiches!
I've never once seen you
make a sandwich.
You got everything you need
in the bedroom?
Yes. I guess that's
one of the advantages
of marrying your housekeeper.
- Very funny.
- How old is she?
She's 31.
Is she really?
- Really?
- Yeah.
- Oh, my god!
- - Christian
no, I mean,
she could be your daughter.
So is grace not coming?
She had a few meetings
she couldn't get out of.
- When's she getting here?
- Wednesday.
Take the Volvo. Ask Peterson
to give you the keys.
You've still got mom's car?
Why wouldn't I?
I'm going to go for a walk.
Anna's putting on
a special dinner for you.
Don't be late.
A mate of mine's a manager
of a steel mill up north.
I'll give him a call.
Charlotte's job will
tide you over.
Who knows if
there'll still be a school?
- They won't shut the school.
- Without kids left to teach?
I'll see you at the pub, then?
Nah, I've got to head down
to the science competition.
Of course, yeah.
Best of luck to hedvig, eh?
Thanks, mate. Are we still
good for tomorrow?
Yeah, dad said we can
borrow his boat, so we're on.
I'm looking forward to it.
It'll be a nice distraction.
- We bloody need one.
- See you, mate.
So I've researched amino acids
as part of my science project,
particularly focusing on the
amino acids in the human body
and also in the food and drink
Um, so this is a skeleton
diagram of an amino acid,
which I connected to
a nitrogen atom,
which is here, silver.
Then we...
That's then in turn connected
to the Alpha carbon atom.
Ah, so, yeah. That's it.
Thanks for listening
to my presentation.
The standard of the whole day
has been very, very high.
- How'd you go?
- She was great.
I stumbled over
my presentation.
I'm sure it was great.
- Hey.
- Did you hear?
Kate told me. I'm sorry, baby.
We'll talk about it later.
- Hedvig.
- Hedvig, it's you!
- Hedvig?
- Yeah! Told you so.
Whoo, yeah!
Hedvig! Yeah!
Hang on a sec.
I'm just going to grab
my stuff from the classroom.
Still think they should have
given you first prize.
- Shut up, dad!
- Just saying.
- Hey, guys.
- Adam.
- Hey, mr Finch.
- Adskis.
What's up, man?
How was practice?
It was good.
I scored two 3-pointers.
- Cool.
- Totes, totes.
- Hedvig got second prize...
- Dad!
I wouldn't bring it up. She's
a bit embarrassed about it.
- Yeah?
- Show him your certificate.
- Check it.
- Yeah, awesome.
- Do you want to hang out?
- Yeah, man. Let's do it.
Yeah, I do.
- Can you take that?
- Yeah, whatevs.
- I'll see you later.
- See you later. See you, man.
Two 3-pointers, man -
that's gnarly.
Yeah, thanks.
It's gnarly!
Say no to drugs.
Banksy is, like, the most
famous street artist
in the world!
Like, he tags all these
warehouses and stuff.
He's pretty good.
Adam! You've got to see this.
What is it?
You have an unfair advantage.
- Can I have my bike back?
- Nope!
What, you giving up?
This place is awesome.
Come on!
Are you seriously going to
make me chase you again?
If you catch me,
you can kiss me.
You know what? I'm tapping out.
lamb chops are discounted.
It's going to be a nightmare
for hedvig's exams
if we've got to move.
We should wait till the end
of the year, at least.
- Money's going to get tight.
- We'll figure something out.
Fucking hell!
- What?
- It's Christian!
- Who?
- Hey!
- Hey!
- My god!
Is that all you've got to say
for yourself?
- When did you get in?
- I got in this morning.
- No phone call?
- I was about to call you.
- What are you doing tonight?
- I'm meant to be...
Come over for dinner.
This is my wife, Charlotte.
Charlotte, this is
my old friend, Christian.
- It's so nice to meet you.
- Nice to meet you.
He's Henry's son.
He's been overseas.
I haven't been home for awhile.
He's coming for dinner tonight.
I don't want to be any trouble.
- We're having chops.
- Chops.
- Ow.
- Oh, shit!
- Sorry! Sorry, sorry.
- It's ok, it's alright.
You know what? Let's just wait
till tomorrow, alright?
We'll do it on your birthday.
Going somewhere?
My dad told me never
to get in cars with strangers.
Yeah, right. He sounds like
a pretty smart guy.
- How'd she go?
- She blitzed it.
- Second prize.
- You beauty!
- You went to school with dad?
- I did.
Dad, you remember Christian,
don't you?
- Mr Finch.
- Henry's son.
I taught you
how to play football.
That's right.
- You still rubbish?
- Dad!
- Well, he was.
- Come on, Christian.
He's back in town
for his dad's wedding.
Henry's getting married again?
You know that, dad. I told
you. We've been invited.
He's a little... you know.
So what was dad like as a kid?
- Don't tell her anything.
- Was he naughty?
- About average.
- What did he get up to?
Um, no comment.
- Good man.
- You know, though,
your dad was the golden boy
back in school.
- What?
- He was just like you.
He won all the prizes, topped
the state in three subjects.
Isn't that right, Oliver?
- Can't remember.
- Why did you never tell me?
Let's just get this dinner
That's where
she gets her brains.
Definitely not where
she got her looks.
- Hedvig?
- Yeah?
We got a new friend today.
- Really?
- Not another one, dad.
- Come have a look.
- Want to see something cool?
- What's that?
- Grandad's forest.
- His forest?
- Yeah. Can we show him?
- Dinner will be ready soon.
- Please?
Alright. You've got
t minus 20 minutes.
So you're American.
I'm not sure.
How can you not be sure?
Well, my mother was American.
My parents met
in New York City.
And I just moved around a lot
when I was young.
Then my father decided
I should come back here
and go to school.
I wish I was born
somewhere else.
Yeah, everyone does.
So everything
worked out for you, hey?
Yeah, man.
It was touch and go
for awhile there.
But you're happy?
Fuck, yeah.
Yeah, I think so.
Hedvig is a great girl.
She's the best thing
in my life. She is.
They're all animals
we've been given,
or we found them injured.
There's a lot left to do.
Just making a new pond
for the birds.
We're kind of like
an unofficial rspca.
Ah, there she is.
Give her some bread.
Hey, come here.
It's alright. Sh, sh, sh.
I'm hedvig.
It's ok. It's ok, it's ok.
Oh. What happened to her?
Henry shot her down.
Peterson saved her.
My father shot that duck down?
Yeah. Must be losing his touch.
Is she going to be ok?
I don't know. I don't know
if she'll fly again.
Left wing's all buggered up.
Walter seems to be doing fine.
I don't know.
He hasn't really been the same
since he got out of jail.
But your dad's been really
- Has he?
- He has.
He gave Walter a pension.
He helped us buy this house.
You know, I didn't know that.
Yeah, yeah.
Well, it's not the life
I expected when I was 19,
and fuck knows what happens
now I'm out of a job, but...
I'm lucky.
I know that.
Do you think that
he's trying to avoid me?
Of course not.
I don't think that
he likes me very much.
What's not to like?
If it's just the two of us,
do you want to go upstairs?
Play chess?
Come on.
I think I should probably
keep myself nice
for the wedding night.
Oh! Come on, Henry.
Well, I suppose we could have
a little practice go.
Race you up the stairs.
How's your essay going?
This book is so boring!
My task is basically to invent
reasons why it's interesting,
to make my teacher feel better
about the fact that
he liked it 40 years ago.
- Man, that sucks.
- Yeah.
Another couple of years
and you can do whatever
you want with your life.
- Join the army?
- Except that.
- Become a rally-car driver?
- Or that.
Demolitions expert?
No way.
So what you're saying is,
I can do whatever
you want me to do?
No, you've still got
plenty of options.
There's, like, law, medicine,
law, entertainment law,
criminal law,
my law.
Why have I never met Christian
What do you mean?
Well, you two
used to be best friends.
Did you have a fight
or something?
Well, no. He just left town
after his mum died,
- and I didn't hear from him.
- How'd his mum die?
She killed herself.
That's intense.
But not many people know that,
so I wouldn't go
spreading it around, ok?
I can't even imagine
you or mum dying.
Well, we're not going to.
Well, you will, eventually.
but not for a very long time.
Why don't we invite Christian
to my birthday tomorrow?
- Really?
- Yeah. Why not?
- Ok, great.
- Great!
- Great.
- Great!
Fist bump.
- Dad?
- Yeah?
Are we going to have to move?
I don't know yet.
Depends where I find a job.
But we are not going anywhere
until you finish
this year's exams.
I don't want you to leave.
Let's not worry about it now.
I'm going to work it out, ok?
- You know why?
- Why?
- 'Cause I'm the best.
- Well...
- What?
- Second-best.
- To who?
- I'm the best.
- Then mum's third?
- Yeah.
The duck is the ruler.
The duck's above us all.
- I love you.
- I love you.
- You're not having one?
- Me? No, no, no.
I'm off it for awhile.
Dry July?
It turns out I just don't
handle it very well.
You're not doing that aa shit,
are you?
- Well, you know...
- Hey, hey - fair enough.
Hey! I tried to call you.
Yeah, sorry.
I had my phone in my bag.
I didn't see it
till I got home.
was Richard at that party?
- Christian...
- Was he?
I can't control whether or not
he comes to a party, Christian.
I'm really glad that
you're coming.
Hold on.
Can you see me?
I really think you should
move back in
when we get back to the states.
- Christian...
- It's been long enough.
Let's talk about it
when I get there.
I have not had a drink
in two months.
That's good,
but it's not just that.
Hey, hey, hey, hey -
I'm happier now.
I like the guy I am now.
What happens when everything
goes back to normal
and you fall back into
old habits?
It won't. I can guarantee you
things will not go back
to normal. I promise you that.
We were hoping to source
most of the ingredients
but we've lost
most of the suppliers.
Is this because of the mill?
Of course it is.
What are we going to do?
Find someone in the city.
Can we do that,
is there enough time?
Theoretically, but
it's going to cost a lot more.
It doesn't matter
how much it costs.
Organise it.
- Oliver.
- Mr nielson.
I'm here to pick up Christian.
We're going away for the night.
You do remember we've got
a rehearsal in the morning?
A rehearsal? Yeah.
Great having him back,
isn't it?
Yeah. I'm... I'm looking
forward to the wedding.
Oh, yeah.
- What?
- Where are they?
If my brother finds out
I stole these, he'll kill me.
I don't want to sound like
a pussy,
but what if there's snakes
and shit?
You sound like a pussy, Adam.
Shut up!
Have you done this before?
Not telling.
You have. Who with?
Just forget about it.
Um, wait.
Hey, slow down.
- What's wrong?
- Just... I...
- It's ok.
- You're hurting me.
- I'm just...
- Hang on. Just stop a second.
- It's ok.
- Just hang on a second.
- I'm just...
- Adam...
Fucking hell! I'm just...
- Stop for a second.
- Oh, fuck it!
Fuck it.
I'm ok.
I've been looking for you.
I'm fine.
What happened?
I'm saying, I'm fine.
You must be freezing.
I'll make you a vegie burger.
How's that sound?
It'll be a three-course meal.
It'll be soup, then the sort
of steak or chicken choice.
You're always
thinking about the food!
- Name plates.
- I haven't seen the menu.
Well, that's it for me.
I'll say goodnight.
Goodnight, dad.
How many people -
150, 200 people?
No-one from the town
except you guys.
He didn't write
the invite list!
We're only going
'cause of Walter.
The whole town's falling
apart, he's trying to party.
Well, he's never much cared
for other people's opinions.
Must have been tough growing
up with him as your old man.
How'd he meet her?
She was his housekeeper.
You were his housekeeper!
- Only for a little while.
- Really?
That's why she came up here.
Yes, you are a lucky bastard.
You wouldn't find a woman like
that in this town, no way!
I mean,
apart from present company.
Personally, I think she could
do a bit better, mate.
Do you want a hand?
I'm almost done.
I had no idea
you worked for my father.
- Then you knew my mother?
- Yeah, I did.
Awful thing,
what happened to her.
Yeah, yeah.
How long did you work there?
Um, half a year. A year, maybe.
And why did you leave?
Oliver and I got together,
and I started getting some
substitute work at the school.
It's just... it's funny,
my father never mentioned you.
He didn't?
I'd better get these things
packed up.
- I met Charlotte.
- Hm?
I didn't realise
that's who it was.
- What are you talking about?
- I'd pictured her differently
- from all mom's stories.
- Christian...
What are you guys
talking about?
- We'll talk about this later.
- Does Oliver know?
- What is going on?
- Anna,
could you just
give us a moment, please?
Excuse me?
Just give us a moment, please.
I'll have a cigarette anyway.
It was a complicated time,
I don't expect you
to understand that.
Your mother was
seeing other people too.
She wasn't seeing anyone!
She was trying to see you.
We were keeping up appearances.
It hadn't been a relationship
for years. Can you understand?
- You never bothered to try.
- I did try.
I stuck with her.
I knew she needed me.
- It was a compromise for me.
- She needed you...
And you gave up on her.
'Cause I'd had enough.
I was exhausted.
I couldn't
keep looking after her.
Day in, day out,
taking care of her.
And I wanted...
I wanted to be happy again.
Oh, you wanted to be happy?
What about mom?
What about me, when am I
going to get my turn?
sorry for ruining your dinner.
Christian, please.
- Christian!
- What?
There's not a day I don't wish
your mother was still alive.
Good for you.
What's going on?
Well, it didn't sound
like nothing.
I'll sleep in the other room
so I don't wake you.
- Henry!
- I'm sorry!
- Henry!
- Anna, just leave me alone.
What are you doing?
I just made a dummy
for everyone who's left.
Oh. Cool.
Yeah, hi.
Can you guess who this is?
I don't know. Is it Colin?
No - Brett.
You need to give him
some red hair.
Oh, my god!
That's a great idea.
- I'm sorry.
- Hm?
About... You know.
It's ok.
Yeah, that looks better.
I've always wanted to do this.
- You decapitated Brett!
- Yeah.
- What have you done?
- It's a memorial.
Yeah, for all the kids
who left town.
It's not bad.
So, before we get started,
I'd like to remind everyone,
assignments 7a and b are due
a week on Friday.
Do you want to hang out
after school?
Yeah, ok.
- I've got a surprise.
- Ok.
Hey, lovebirds!
Where did you get this?
It's my grandad's.
- Do you know how to use it?
- Yeah.
You want a go?
- Yeah, alright.
- Yeah?
You get it in your shoulder.
Yeah, like that.
And then cock the hammer.
That's it.
That's intense.
Hey, did you smell
mr Peters' breath today?
Yes. It was like
something had died in there,
like a homeless guy had set up
his camp in his mouth.
Exactly what it smelled like.
Oh, just got a job interview.
Yeah, just some factory
outside the city.
- That's great!
- Yeah.
How about you take a raincheck
on that marking?
Well, you know,
I thought maybe we could...
I'm busy.
I know, I know, it's just that
you're always busy. And...
I figure it's, like, an hour
before hedvig comes back.
What was that for?
- Just wanted to.
- Get out of here!
Hey, duck.
What were you doing with that?
- You scared me!
- What were you doing?
- Just shooting some cans.
- Where?
Down at the old factory.
Next time, you ask me first.
Do you understand?
I don't want you handling
that gun without supervision.
Sorry, grandad.
- Promise?
- Promise.
Seen the duck?
What's she doing?
Do you think she'll ever
be able to fly again?
She's got plenty of
I'll give her that.
Anyone home?
What time is it?
- Ten to nine.
- Ah, shit.
Yeah. Dad, I can see your bum.
Sorry, sorry.
Sorry, we fell asleep. Mm-hm!
No, we were just having a nap.
- Sure! Nap.
- Just a nap!
- So busted!
- Yeah.
She saw my bum.
Where's grace?
Tell me what's going on.
Not now. Please.
We're getting married
in two days.
We don't keep things
from each other.
Why didn't you tell me?
I've never told anyone.
Well, I don't want to be
I'd never do that to you.
Well, I won't stick around
if you do.
I know.
Hey, mate. What's up?
Hedgehog? Brekkie.
Who's that?
It's Christian.
What's he doing here?
He's coming to the city
with me for the interview.
- Why's he going?
- He called last night.
- He wanted to see me.
- Why?
I don't know.
- He didn't say?
- What's wrong?
you're going to be late.
I haven't even eaten breakfast.
Hurry up, then.
- Can you answer it, baby?
- Sure.
Don't do it for her.
- Hi.
- Hi.
I thought I'd lend him a suit.
Oh. That's nice of you.
Mr Finch.
Who are you?
It's Christian...
Dad! He came camping with us.
Henry's son.
Oh. I taught you how to
play football. You were crap.
Hey, Christian. I overslept.
We're running late. Bye!
Look after Oliver, won't you?
He hasn't been in the city
for years.
I'll do my best.
- You ready?
- I am.
Toast kiss! You're beautiful.
- I made you lunch.
- Yeah.
I need to talk to you.
What are you doing
in town today?
Just getting some more
chicken wire.
Bloody rabbits -
they're tunnelling
under the walls again.
Where are you going?
Is Adam coming to school
today? The bus is waiting.
Better go and have a word
to hedvig, eh?
Dad got a job up north.
I'm sorry.
When are you going to
come back?
I don't know. They found me
a place at a school up there.
Why didn't you tell me?
I'm sorry.
They all look so young.
We used to look like that?
I hardly remember being here,
Do you remember how hammered
we used to get?
At least you got laid,
you know?
You experienced it,
you had fun.
I wasted my time chasing
Erica flowers for two years.
What happened to her?
She turned out to be a lesbian.
- You're kidding me?
- No.
I spent three years convinced
she was playing hard-to-get.
We should hurry up.
Interview's in 20 minutes.
Yeah. I'm just
going to hang out here.
Maybe check out a few
of the old haunts.
- I'll come find you.
- Do that.
Wish me luck.
Good luck.
Thanks for coming.
That's ok.
Christian knows, doesn't he?
He may not say anything.
I can't lose them, Henry.
I'll try and talk to Christian.
He's in the city with Oliver.
I'll call him.
Excuse me? Just one more.
Well, I'm sure as shit
not getting that job.
There were, like,
ten 20-year-olds
sitting in the waiting room,
psyching me out.
What happened?
I don't have to be
on my best behaviour anymore.
Grace isn't coming.
She what?
She's done this before.
Just disappeared
without notice.
Fuck. That's not good, hey?
She's been staying
at a friend's house.
We've been on a break.
Hey, do you want one of these?
- Ah...
- Come on.
Alright, fuck it. Let's do it.
Oh, we're going to do it.
Like old times,
we're going to do it.
I need you to duplicate this.
I'm going to take one of those.
- Here. Right there.
- Cheers.
I'm sorry about that
interview. 20-year-olds!
The problem is, I get in there
and I'm stressed out.
- Alright.
- Garon!
I think I may have turned
Erica flowers
because of my natural
See that?
The wing's coming on strong.
I reckon she might just
make it back up into the air.
You alright, love?
Why did you go to jail?
I did a bad thing.
What did you do?
I found a way to hide
a whole heap of money
that we were supposed to pay.
You and mr nielson?
Why didn't he go to jail?
Well, Henry's name
wasn't on the documents,
and there was no point
of both of us going down.
Why'd you do it?
I don't know.
Greed, loyalty to a friend.
And I wanted to make
a good life for your father.
I was sitting here.
They'd just convicted my dad.
It was all over the news,
and he was on the TV
just up there.
there was this group of guys.
I was drinking back there,
and one of them
just kept shouting out,
'isn't that your dad?'
But I ignored him.
I kept drinking.
But the fucking prick, man,
the fucking prick
just kept shouting
till the whole pub
was listening,
and I turned to him.
I wanted to punch
his fucking face in.
I looked up at the TV.
I looked at my dad
straight in the face...
And I said, 'I've got
no idea who that guy is.'
and then I dropped out of uni.
I never would have
met Charlotte
if I hadn't moved back home.
Look at hedvig. She's a genius.
I know - 'shut up.'
I'm meant to say that
'cause I'm her dad,
but she's a genius,
and all the stuff...
She's a very bright girl.
All the stuff I never got to
do, she's going to do it -
she's going to do it.
Oliver, there's something that
I really need to...
What are you guys doing
in here?
We were just reminiscing.
This is, um, this is Oliver.
Hi, Oliver.
This is my friend Christian.
We used to go to uni here.
What do you do now?
Christian is kind of a
hot-shot businessman.
I don't like to brag.
What about you, what do you do?
I am just a local fella,
just from around here,
- local guy.
- You don't sound like one.
Oh, really? Good. I try
pretty hard to stave that off.
No, no, no.
- On both 1...
- 2...
- 2...
- 3...
- Dolphin!
- Nah, nah, nah!
- Dolphin.
- Dolphins?
We're not playing dolphins.
That was impressive.
- It's impressive!
- I'm impressive.
I'm out of my league.
Where are you guys staying
That's a good question.
We were actually meant to be
home a few hours ago.
About, like, five hours or so.
You should stay the night
with us.
We're actually married men.
Does it matter?
To me, it does. It does!
To me, it does.
What about you?
Are you alright?
I'm sorry!
I'm out of practice.
I'm about to fall over myself.
What time is it?
It's quarter to two.
We got to get back.
Listen, I'm going to
drink some water...
- We need a plan.
- I'll drink some water,
and we'll give it, like,
an hour.
We'll give it two hours.
We need a plan.
Come here, mate.
I've missed you, mate.
- Oliver?
- Yeah?
I don't want to ever grow up.
- It's too late, mate.
- Let's never grow up.
It's too late.
Where the fuck have you been?
Oh, my god,
you look great, Anna.
We have to start.
Just give him a few minutes.
What happened?
I couldn't get on the plane.
you could have called me.
I just wasn't ready.
Christian, there's something
I need to talk to you about.
I'm running late
for my dad's wedding, so...
What is it?
I can call you later.
No, you can't call me later.
You can tell me now.
What's going on, what is it?
We should talk later.
Grace, let's talk about it now.
- What's going on?
- No, let's not do this now.
You and I were never right
for each other, Christian.
I could never figure you out,
and you never let me in.
- I just...
- Don't do this.
Not now.
I've been seeing Richard again.
Don't do this, don't do this.
I'm sorry.
What are you telling me, that
you've been fucking Richard
while I was waiting
for you to arrive,
calling you every hour?
You've been fucking Richard?
Is that what you're telling me
right now?
It wasn't...
I did everything for you.
I'm sorry.
Stop saying that.
- I'm sorry.
- Stop saying that!
Don't say that. I'm sure you
think you should be sorry.
You're a fucking liar.
Come on, we're going to start.
What are you doing?
Let's do this.
To have and to hold...
To have and to hold.
- ..For better or for worse...
- For better or for worse.
For richer or for poorer...
For richer or for poorer.
In sickness and in health...
In sickness and in health.
Till death do us part.
Till death do us part.
Christian, please come forward
with the rings.
The rings.
Dance hall days
Christian! Come on, dance.
Dance with me, come on.
Right, let's go.
Hey, hey!
Come on, baby!
that was lovely, wasn't it?
You think?
Yeah, it was beautiful.
You didn't feel even a tinge
of jealousy?
What are you doing?
Have you told Oliver?
You haven't, have you?
How could you do that
to the man you love?
He was an absolute mess.
His father was in jail.
I wanted to tell him.
I really wanted to tell him,
but I had to wait
for a better time.
But you never did, did you?
You don't think it's cruel to
let him keep living that lie?
You've seen our family.
Do you think
there's something wrong
with the way that we live?
Please just leave us alone.
We're happy. Just let us be.
You should tell him tonight.
He deserves to know.
You do not need to be scared
of the truth.
You don't need to be
scared of this, Charlotte!
Let's go.
Hedvig needs to be in bed.
Can't we stay a little longer?
It's way past your bedtime.
Since when do I have a bedtime?
- Bedtime? She's not 12.
- I'm not 12!
You need to be in school
You coming?
I'm going to stay a bit longer.
- How will you get home?
- I'll walk.
Why don't you just come now?
Christian's leaving
in a couple of days.
- Can't you see him tomorrow?
- What's wrong with you?
Ok. I'm going to stay with you.
- You don't have to.
- I want to stay.
You do want to stay? Alright.
You're going home, hedvig.
- Can we stay longer?
- Mum and dad can.
can you take hedvig home?
Yeah, no worries.
Is this where you've been
all night, dad?
Give me the bottle.
- I can't do that, sir.
- Give me that fucking bottle.
Sorry, sir.
Hey, good man.
Go fuck yourself.
Hey, how was your night?
I can't find Christian.
Probably gone to bed.
Let's go home.
I'll just look
inside the house.
Come on, Oliver!
I'll be one second. Promise.
One second.
You ok?
Do you know what this room is?
How much have you had to drink?
I don't know, mate.
Go on, guess.
we should get you some water.
This is where she did it.
She called me five times
that night.
I thought it was just another
one of her... you know.
And her last call was
15 minutes before I got home,
and I didn't call her back.
And I haven't been in here
Grace left me.
You alright?
No, not really.
- Uh...
- What is it?
Charlotte hasn't told you,
has she?
Told me what?
I didn't want to be the one
to do this.
Get him off, get him off!
You fucking prick!
Get him out!
Can you help me? Henry!
Stay away from me.
Oliver, please. Please!
Get your fucking hands off me!
Why didn't you tell me?
I'm sorry.
You remember what it was like.
We'd only just started
seeing each other.
You were drunk half the time,
and there was barely
a relationship.
That gives you an excuse
to fuck someone else?
- No! I just...
- Were you in love with him?
Were you in love with him?
I thought
you were in love with me.
Not yet. Well, not really.
Not really?
I'm sorry.
Oh, fucking hell!
- I'm in love with you now.
- Get off me!
Get your fucking hands off me.
- How many people know?
- No-one.
How many people know?
Don't fucking lie to me.
I'm sorry.
I'm so sorry.
You let me live in this town,
with that man.
You let me work for him.
I took his fucking money!
- How could you do that to me?
- I'm sorry.
How could you fucking do that
to someone you love?
- I'm so sorry.
- Oh, I'm an idiot.
Don't say that.
- Don't say that.
- I'm a fucking idiot.
If you were in love with him,
why'd you stay with me?
Oliver, I...
'Cause when his wife
killed herself,
he wouldn't see you anymore,
and I was the second-best
option, right?
Oh, Jesus.
Oliver, stop it.
Oh, Jesus.
Oh, Jesus!
Please tell me it wasn't
'cause you were pregnant.
Charlotte, tell me it wasn't
'cause you were pregnant.
- Oliver, please stop.
- Answer the question.
I'm begging you.
Answer the fucking question!
Yes, I was pregnant.
With hedvig?
- So...
- Oliver...
- Please.
- Let go of me!
I didn't know about hedvig.
You're disgusting.
I'm sorry.
Don't you dare tell hedvig.
Hey, um...
Are you ok? Where are you?
Hey, Ollie?
Why don't you just come home,
I'll be there soon.
Um, he's staying at the motel,
and he wants me to bring him
some clothes.
I'll go.
No, I don't think
it's a good idea, love.
Look, don't worry.
I'll have a good talk with
him. He'll be home.
What's going on?
Why is dad
staying at the motel?
why don't you have a shower,
and we'll take the bus
Mum, what's happening?
- Everything's fine.
- Hurry, you'll be late.
Your mother left me once
for someone else.
She told me she was in love
with this painter fellow.
He taught her life drawing
or something.
She said she was sorry
and that she'd never really
loved me.
You hungry?
You want to talk about it?
So I threw myself into my work.
I started the business
with Henry.
And then one day,
your mother came back.
He'd gotten bored with her,
he'd moved on to someone else.
So I said that
I'd forget all about it,
and we should start again.
And so we did.
You were born
a couple of years later.
I only had a few years left
with your mother
before she died but...
They were a few
very good years.
I can't forgive her.
Why not?
I can't trust her again.
Of course you can.
That was a long time ago.
You were different people then.
Everyone's got a story
like this, Oliver.
It's as old as the hills.
Hey, Greg's called in sick.
I need you
to take his 11 o'clock.
- History?
- Yeah, just for today.
That's hedvig's class.
What's wrong with that?
On the one hand, we have
the industrial revolution,
and on the other, we have
the romantic movement in art.
- Er, in this painting...
- What did you do?
Turner wasn't the only painter
to represent
a post-enlightenment...
Tell me what you did.
In this painting
by Joseph Wright...
Did you cheat on him?
Is that what you did?
Hedvig, can we have this
conversation outside, please?
- You did, didn't you?
- Hedvig, stop it.
- Stop it now.
- You cheated on him.
Shut up! Stop laughing.
- Hedvig...
- Stop laughing!
- It's not funny.
- Hedvig, stop it.
I hate you!
- Outside, now!
- Fuck!
Shut the fuck up!
Hedvig, come back here!
What do you want?
Walter, please.
I'm sorry about everything
that's happened.
I want to set up a trust
for hedvig.
You what?
It's only fair.
It's out in the open.
She deserves, you all deserve,
a fair share.
I want to make sure
you're all comfortable.
Fuck off, Henry.
I understand that
you're angry at me,
but hedvig shouldn't have to
suffer because of that.
She won't.
We'll make sure of that.
You've done enough damage
to this family,
so why don't you fuck off
out of this town
and leave us
to pick up the pieces?
You know what the miracle is,
Hedvig doesn't bear one trace
of you. Not one, thank god.
She's Oliver's daughter.
Stay out of our lives!
Aren't you supposed to be
at school?
Then you're waiting
for your dad?
He's not in there.
Maybe he's gone back home.
No, his stuff's still
in there. I looked.
Does your duck have a name?
It's a duck, Christian.
Why would it have a name?
What, so you're just going to
keep saying 'it'?
Yeah, or 'you' when
I'm talking to it.
I think you should
come up with a name for her.
Like what?
Because my father shot her,
and she survived.
Lucky ducky.
You're a dag.
Yeah, I really am.
You want to kiss me?
It's ok.
I've had sex before.
I know what to do.
And I'm not going to
tell anybody.
No! What are you doing?
No! Jesus Christ, hedvig!
- I'm sorry.
- No, no...
I'm in idiot. I'm sorry!
- No, you're not.
- I'm such an idiot!
- Stupid idiot! I'm sorry.
- Hedvig. Hedvig?
You don't understand.
Tell me what's going on.
Tell me. Please.
No, dad!
Dad, please!
I can't talk to you right now.
Please come home.
Christian told me.
It's ok.
No, it's not.
Can't you just pretend that
you never found out?
I'm your daughter!
- No, you're not.
- You brought me up!
No, you're his daughter.
And I think you should be glad.
He's very successful.
He's rich. He'll make sure
you have a good life.
I don't want to be
anyone else's daughter.
You don't have a choice.
I just want our family
back together!
It's ok.
It's ok.
Your mum will look after you.
No. Not mum, you.
why can't you just pretend?
- No, dad. I really need you.
- I have to go.
- I really need you.
- I have to go, hedvig.
- Let go of me, ok?
- I'm begging you.
I can't look at you!
Do you understand that
I can't fucking look at you?
Leave me alone!
Goodbye, lucky.
You've got to go now. I can't
look after you anymore.
I know you can fly.
Please! Will you please fly?
Come on - go, go!
You can do it.
Come on, please! Please fly.
Learn to fly for me.
..Out at the coral sea,
where it's expected
to completely dissipate
by around lunchtime tomorrow.
Several coastal suburbs are
feeling the aftermath today,
with power lines still down
in several areas,
and 500 homes
have been damaged.
It's too soon to tell
what the cost of the damage
could amount to.
I'm looking for hedvig Finch.
- Are you a relative?
- Yeah, I'm her father.
Go to the desk on level 1.
- Mr and mrs Finch?
- Yeah.
Hi, I'm dr chandran.
Why don't you have a seat?
How is she?
She's still
in a critical condition.
We're doing the best we can,
but it's hard to say now.
Is she going to be ok?
I don't know. I'm sorry.
We just have to wait...
She can't die.
- Oliver?
- She can't fucking die!
I told her
I didn't want to look at her!
It doesn't matter.
What have I done?
What did I do?
- I pushed her away.
- Stop it.
It'll be ok.
I'm sorry!
You have to be strong for her.
She needs us to be strong
right now.
Ssh. It'll be ok, it'll be ok.
Everything will be ok.
