Charlotte (2017) Movie Script

My name is Rene.
I'm a mother.
And I'm just starting to love my daughter.
Have a seat.
How was your day?
Welcome home.
Are you gonna stay there?
Hey, how are you doing?
Yeah, good.
This is my wife, Rene.
Molly's in the bedroom, sleeping.
Did you need me to stay a bit longer?
No, no you can go.
I'll walk you out.
It was nice to meet you.
Do you want something to drink?
Do you wanna see her?
You're awake, huh?
You're not asleep?
Hey, look who's here.
Look who's here.
Mommy's here.
Do you want to hold her?
For tablets?
His Medicare covers the cost, right?
Unfortunately these drugs
aren't on the PBS list yet.
Are there any other options?
I'm afraid that's it Mrs. Gardner.
As you are aware his body hasn't responded
to any of the treatment methods.
I'm sorry Mr. Gardner but...
this will be your father's last hope.
We can go.
It's not nearly as good as your cooking.
I think she's hungry.
She fell asleep.
Here you are.
Is everything okay?
Why do you have a one-eyed
fish in the bathtub?
This is your fish.
It was in a small fish tank but...
the tank got a crack in it the day
you had your car accident.
So I put the fish in here for now.
Just make sure you keep this door closed.
The cat shouldn't get in here.
Come on, let's finish dinner.
I'm not hungry.
I want to brush my teeth and get some rest.
Your toothbrush is the one on the left.
This is your wedding ring.
I'll just put it over here.
You can put it back on
whenever you're ready.
You want to sleep alone, don't you?
I need some time.
I understand.
I'll sleep on the couch.
I'm just gonna get my work clothes
and I'll be out of your way.
Your pyjamas are in here.
Sleep well.
I'll see you in the morning.
That's our life savings.
There's no other option.
We can save money again.
We can't save his life later.
Yeah, I think you're right.
Let's go and tell him that we're gonna
pay for his treatment.
He could use some hope at this point.
You do it.
I have to get to the child-care center.
What's wrong?
I'm pregnant again.
Good morning.
I've made Molly's meal.
Would you feed it to her?
I'm late for work.
I'm only on half a day today, alright?
See you soon.
Is Molly asleep?
Why aren't there any photos of Molly?
Because you didn't want anyone else
to have her photos except for you.
They were all on your phone.
It broke in the accident.
What about my parents?
Are they alive?
You haven't been in contact
with them for years.
You didn't want them in our lives.
Have you...
Have you seen our backyard?
Come on, let me show you.
It was your favorite place.
You loved it out here.
You used to say it was
like living in a forest.
Do we own the house?
One day we will.
What do you do?
Anything really.
At the moment I'm working in a supermarket.
It's short term but it
pays the bills for now.
And me?
You worked in child-care.
you quit your job to take care of Molly.
Can I help you?
Mrs. Darcy?
Rene Darcy?
I'm detective Greg Miller.
What can I do for you?
Mr. Darcy home?
I've been informed that you're recovering
from a recent car accident. Is that correct?
Do you remember what happened?
I see.
Do you mind if I come in?
Why didn't you call me?
Didn't get a chance.
And I don't have your number.
I'm sorry I...
I keep forgetting that
you don't remember...
Give me a call whenever you need.
I've got keys to the house so
I won't knock on the door.
You don't need to answer
the door to anyone. Okay?
Have you fed Molly today?
Just baby formula.
Didn't know where her food was.
Here, I'll show you how to make it.
We're missing one of your socks.
It will show up.
What's wrong?
I'm pregnant again.
When did you find out?
Two weeks ago.
I didn't know when would be
a good time to tell you.
Are you okay?
Mommy has got you.
Come in.
I made you herbal tea.
Thank you.
You're welcome.
Good night.
Good night.
Is Molly with you?
Is Molly with you?
Is she with you?
Where is she?
What's going on?
I don't know where she is.
I've looked everywhere.
All of her things are gone.
It must be that guy.
What guy?
That guy I told you about.
Said he was a detective.
I think it was him in the car.
I saw it a few times.
We should call the police.
To tell them what?
To tell them that Molly is missing.
Who's Molly?
Our daughter.
we don't have a daughter.
What the hell are you talking about?
What are you talking about?
I'm calling the police.
To tell them what?
Is this...
Is this what?
This is because of the accident.
I can't believe you're doing this.
Babe, it has always been
just the two of us.
We have no children.
Call the police and tell them that
our imaginary daughter has gone missing.
The number's triple zero,
in case you don't remember.
And when I woke up this
morning, she was gone.
I called my husband first. I
thought he would have her.
She didn't know who I was.
She couldn't even remember her own name.
It has been a tough couple of weeks for us.
She's going through a lot, you know.
I see.
What the hell is wrong with you?
Why are you doing this?
Ma'am, please calm down.
Calm down?
My daughter is missing...
my husband is pretending that I'm crazy...
and instead of helping me
you're telling me to calm down?
we've contacted the base to
provide further information.
We should hear back from them soon.
Patrol sixteen, this is base. Message over.
Patrol sixteen, copy.
Stand by.
Mrs. Darcy
your husband is right.
You've never had a child.
I do have a daughter...
and she's missing.
Go and find my daughter
and bring her back to me.
Do you have any witnesses?
Has anyone seen you with your daughter?
The baby-sitter.
She was here when I got
home from the hospital.
Do you have her name or contact details?
I don't. Ben dealt with her.
There was no baby-sitter.
Do you have any photos of your daughter?
All of my photos were on my mobile phone.
It got destroyed in the car accident.
Tell them.
Officers please forgive us for this.
My wife has been going through
a lot since the accident.
Any of her belongings?
Clothes? Milk bottle?
Her dummy? Anything at all?
They're all gone.
Everything was gone this morning.
Mrs. Darcy,
we cannot investigate a missing child
if there's no proof that the
child has ever existed.
There's no birth certificates
recorded under your names.
Please call us if you find anything.
I put them in the bin all the time.
I did it last night.
What did you do?
Where is my daughter?
Mrs. Darcy calm down.
Thank you officers.
Again, I'm really sorry about this.
Mr. Darcy, what hospital was
your wife in after the accident?
The Blackfield hospital.
We may need to contact her doctor
regarding her condition...
Who was her doctor may I ask?
Of course, Dr. Sutton.
Thank you.
Have a good day.
You too.
Do not touch me.
I thought about what happened today.
I really don't know what I should've done.
It's not easy for me...
to see you feel like this.
I want to be supportive...
just like you have been for me but...
I honestly don't know what to say.
I think you've had enough time.
I'm gonna sleep here tonight.
I told you not to go in there.
Oh, you're awake.
Hi, I'm Doctor Sutton.
How are you feeling?
Do you know why are you here?
Can you tell me what your name is?
You can't remember?
That's okay.
Your name is Rene. Rene Darcy.
You live in Australia.
You were in a car accident yesterday.
You're very lucky that you didn't
sustain any major injuries.
I mean, It's almost a miracle.
However you are showing
symptoms of amnesia.
This could be temporary because
of the shock of the accident.
Time will tell.
Do you have any questions for me?
Do you remember your husband?
Well, he would like to see you.
If you need anything at all, just
press that green button there.
How are you doing?
You have no idea how
glad I am you're alive.
Do you remember me?
You don't?
I'm Ben.
Your husband.
Are you okay?
Have a seat.
How was your day?
It was okay.
How was yours?
a bit tiring.
That's no good.
Maybe you should have a shower.
It'll help you wind down.
I think you're right.
So we're talking now, are we?
Nothing. It's just you haven't been talking
to me for a while and now suddenly you...
You know what?
It's all good.
I'm just glad that you're feeling better.
Let's leave it there.
I'm sorry...
it's been really difficult
for me, you know?
With your memory loss and everything...
and all that drama you
created with the police
over an imaginary baby.
It was embarrassing for me.
Yes babe,
It was all in your head. Please
accept that and let us move on.
Oh okay.
So guess what I found today?
My imaginary baby's sock.
What? Let me see that.
Don't you dare.
You can keep lying to me and
I'll contact the police
and give them this sock
so that they can find my baby
or you can stop lying and realize
that I'm not as stupid as you think
and tell me where is my baby?
She wasn't your baby.
May I join the party?
Thank you very much.
Well, well, well.
Sorry I'm late.
No, no, no, remain seated.
where were we?
She's not your... that's right.
She wasn't your baby.
Go on.
Carry on.
No? What? Are you shy?
You're afraid you might hurt her feelings?
Well, let me do your job.
Yes, there was a baby
no, she wasn't yours.
She was actually a stolen baby.
We kidnapped her from her family
and you were the one
that helped us work out
where and when to do it.
I got it.
I can take it from here.
Who is this guy?
What is he talking about?
He's a friend.
We owed him money.
You lost your job at the day-care
where she used to take her daughter.
So the three of us came up with a plan.
You wanted to do it yourself.
So I waited in the car in
case anything went wrong.
The plan was...
to kidnap the baby...
get the money...
and pay Greg back what we owed him.
You got in her car with the baby in it.
You were driving out of the car park.
It was an accident.
You're lying.
I wish I was.
We swapped cars a few blocks down the road.
You went in your car...
I went in theirs.
When I got home, you weren't there.
A few hours later the hospital called.
How would I know that you
two haven't done this...
after my car crash, while I was in hospital
and now you're trying to get me involved?
We're not sweetheart.
You are involved.
What happened to her?
She got the flu.
What do you think happens
when a car runs you over?
She died.
I meant Molly.
Her name's not Molly.
I just called her that because...
it was easier that way.
She's okay.
She's with her father now.
I need to get some fresh air.
I'm afraid we can't let you go out darling.
You understand why.
So what's the plan now?
We need you to be on board with us.
You need to admit that it was all you.
So we know that you're not gonna talk.
We've got the money.
Everything is under control.
Under control?
We've killed someone.
You have.
We're just here to make
sure you understand that.
I don't feel well.
Can I at least go to the
bathroom to wash my face?
She jumped in front of the car Rene.
You had no choice.
What the hell are you doing?
Have you gone mad?
You wanna put us all in jail?
Where are you?
That was an accident.
Shut up. Just go home. I'll see you there.
We'll talk about it when I get home.
