Lake Alice (2018) Movie Script

- See ya at my place at 10.
- Hey babe.
I'm heading home now.
Just some friends.
No, not tonight, I'm
just gonna head home,
but I'll just see
you tomorrow, okay?
You too.
Someone there?
- Thanks for having me up here.
It's really great
to finally meet you.
- It's great to have you here,
we'd heard so much about you.
- All good things, I hope.
- No, all terrible.
- So Ryan, Sarah tells us
that you work in the movies.
- That's right.
- Oh, anything that
we may have seen?
- I'm just starting out, so,
not yet.
- Hey, we're gonna
run to the store
and stop at the coffee
shop, you wanna come?
- No, we're good.
- Do you want us to
bring you back anything?
- No thanks.
- Are you sure?
- They're fine, honey.
- We won't be long.
You sure you don't
want anything?
- Yes, mother.
- Just checking.
Just want to make sure.
- Let's go.
- Do you have the keys?
- Yes, honey.
Here we go.
I'll handle this.
Hi, sheriff.
- Got the whole family
up here with ya?
Up for the holidays, huh?
- Come on, Hank, we
do this every year.
- Nice photo.
- There a reason
you pulled me over?
- Just like to know who's
going through my town.
- We done?
- Have a nice day.
- I can't stand that guy.
You coming?
- Nope.
- Come on.
- I'll stay here.
- All right, do
you want anything?
- Surprise me.
- Oh, okay, don't
set me up for that,
I always know I'm gonna fail.
- Miss you already.
See ya in a couple of days.
- What am I supposed
to do with this?
Oh, you're gonna duct tape it?
- You got a better idea?
- It's your camera.
- Hold it right here.
Come on, let's go.
Woo hoo!
- Hi!
- Hi.
- Hi, Jane.
- I heard you guys were in town.
- You did?
- Well, you know small
towns, word travels fast.
So how long are you
guys up here this year?
- Probably just
through Christmas.
Sarah's gotta get
back to California.
- Aw, what a shame.
How is she?
- She's good, she brought
her boyfriend home.
We'd never met him before this.
- Boyfriend?
I didn't know she
had a boyfriend.
- Yeah, almost a year.
- Well that's wonderful.
- How's Tyler?
- Oh, he's great!
He was asking about
Sarah the other day,
wanted to know why she
hadn't been up here to visit.
Remember when they were kids?
They were practically
joined at the hip.
- I know, it's crazy
how fast time flies.
Next thing you know,
they're on their own.
- Stop, stop.
- What?
- Looks like boot prints.
- So it does.
- That's weird.
- Why?
- Because we only just got here.
- Well, you know, may be
your dad or something, right?
Come on, you're way
over thinking this.
- Mm-hmm.
- Okay.
All aboard.
Let's go.
- Yeah.
- Oh, perfect.
Hey, Carl.
Merry Christmas.
- Hi.
- Thanks for plowing
our driveway for us.
- Happy I could help.
- So you have any special
plans for Christmas?
- Yeah, I'm not much
of a holiday person.
- Well, you should stop
by the cabin sometime.
- Oh, I don't wanna be a bother.
- Nonsense.
- Okay.
Well, maybe, maybe.
- Thanks again for helping.
- Hey, don't
mention it, Natalie.
- Okay.
- Hi-ya!
My dad caught a muskie over
there a few summers ago.
- Really?
- It's a fish.
- I knew that.
- I just love it out here.
- It's gorgeous.
You know, I was really
nervous to meet your parents.
- Why?
- It's a big step.
I'm really glad you
brought me out here though.
- Me too.
What are you doing?
- Sarah Marie...
- Yes.
- You gotta let me finish.
Okay, I'm sorry, go ahead.
- Sarah,
I knew from the first
moment that I met you
that I was gonna spend the
rest of my life with you.
Not only are you the
smartest, funniest,
most beautiful pain in
the ass I've ever met,
But you're also my best friend.
And I can't think of
anything more amazing
than spending the rest
of my life with you.
Will you marry me?
- Oh my god.
Oh my god.
- Yes?
- Yes,
- I love you.
- I love you.
- Morning, sheriff.
- Two cups of coffee to go
and a blueberry scone.
- Now Hank, you shouldn't
be eating that stuff.
It's gonna weigh you down.
- You sound like my ex wife.
- Well she was right,
I'll be right back.
- Keep the change.
- Well thank you.
You two have a good day.
- He's such an ass.
- I heard he's gonna
be retiring soon.
- We'll be better for it.
- We got locked out.
- Aw, I hope you
weren't waiting long.
- No, not long at all.
- Here, let's get you in.
Okay, I'll be quick.
There we go.
- Hey, did you
guys take the spare key?
- Greg?
- Hmm?
- Do you have the spare key?
- No.
- It wasn't in the garage.
- I'm sure he has it somewhere.
Can't remember anything anymore.
- You guys
were gone for a while.
- Your mom and a few
people in the coffee shop.
- Did you guys eat?
- Not hungry.
- I'm good.
Hey mom, guess what.
- What?
Oh my god!
Honey, congratulations!
- Aw, thanks, mom.
- I'm so happy for you both.
Well, we need to celebrate.
I'm gonna make a
huge dinner tonight.
Anything you want.
- Mom, you don't
have to do that.
- Oh, nonsense, what
are you in the mood for?
Never mind, I'm
gonna surprise you.
- Congratulations, honey.
- Thanks dad.
- I gotta go get the Christmas
tree out of the garage.
- Hi!
- Merry Christmas!
- Merry Christmas!
Is it cold enough
for ya out there?
- Yeah, tell me about it.
Good to see you.
- You too.
- Where's Sarah?
- She's in her room with Ryan.
Sarah, come on out here!
- Hi guys.
- Hi!
- Hi.
How ya doin'?
- Oh, we're just doing great.
- Tyler, how's it going?
- Great.
Oh, long time no see.
- Yeah, work's been kinda crazy.
- I'm sure it's pretty
nonstop over there.
Who's this?
- This is Sarah's
boyfriend Ryan.
Well, not boyfriend any more.
Oh my goodness.
This is such good news.
- Thank you.
- Wow, yeah, that's amazing.
- Would you guys
like to stay for dinner?
- Yeah, I'd love to.
- Oh, we'd love to,
but we've already
eaten at the cafe.
We really just stopped
by to give you this.
- Jane, you didn't
have to do that.
- Stop, it's Christmas.
- Thank you.
- Well hey, it was
great seeing you.
You know what?
I have a show
tomorrow night at nine
so you two should come
by, it'll be a good time.
I'm a singer, songwriter.
- Course you are.
- Yeah, we'd love to.
- Yeah?
Okay, great, awesome, then
I'll see you tomorrow.
Hey, and congrats again.
- Thank you.
- Yeah, congratulations.
- Thanks guys.
- Merry Christmas.
- Merry Christmas.
- Drive safe.
Well, Tyler won't be
calling you anymore.
- Aren't you gonna open it?
- I feel kinda guilty I
didn't get them anything.
- We'll just get
them something later.
- I suppose.
It's cute.
- It is.
- They seem nice.
- They're great.
- So...
What's the deal
with you and Tyler?
- Tyler and I grew up together.
- That's it?
- Before I left
for California...
We hung out.
One thing just sort
of led to another.
- Right.
- It was just a silly summer
fling, nothing serious.
- Sure.
- Ryan.
Tyler and I were best friends.
- Funny, you
never mentioned him.
When did this end?
- Technically, no one ended it.
But we both knew
that nothing serious
would ever happen between us.
I'm yours.
Okay, nothing can
ever change that.
Let's just leave the
past where it belongs.
- I dunno.
I mean, it was kinda convincing.
- What do you mean?
Oh my god, shut up.
Oh my god.
- Okay, all I'm
saying is that they've only
known each other a year and
now they're getting married,
I mean, don't you think
that's a little sudden?
- They're in love, honey,
that's what people in love do.
- Well, we don't
even know this guy.
I mean, how's he
gonna support her?
He doesn't even have a real job.
- Come on Greg,
you and I both know
that doesn't mean anything.
- It'll mean something
when they can't pay the rent.
- Just try to make an effort.
You gotta really stir it,
otherwise it's gonna burn.
Beans don't burn.
- Mm-hmm.
- What's for dinner?
- Hi.
- Hi.
- Are your hands clean?
- Nope.
- I don't care.
- Can I have some, get it on me.
- Catch it.
- I gotta run into town
and gas up the truck.
Supposed to be a major
snow storm headed our way
and the tank's only half full.
- Okay honey, drive safe.
- Hey dad, Ryan
will go with you.
- All right.
- Have fun.
- I'll be right back,
you need anything?
- Beer?
- Beer?
Sorry, I didn't see you.
- Gonna have a crazy
Christmas, huh?
- These six beers.
They're for my
daughter's fiance.
- Fiance, Sarah?
I didn't see that one coming.
- Yeah, he's from California.
- Well that
is a shame, isn't it?
- Not really.
Have a good night, David.
Your fly's undone.
- You the same, Mr. Thomas.
- Serve and protect, my ass.
- Hi, can I help you?
- So you're Sarah's fiance, huh?
- Yeah.
- Tell me, is she
still a firecracker?
Excuse me?
- You heard me.
- Is there a problem?
- Is there something
wrong, deputy?
- Just getting better
acquainted with,
what's your name?
- Ryan.
- Ryan.
Guys have a good night.
- You kidding me?
- I have no idea
what's going on,
but I'm getting a little
bit sick of this shit.
Oh come on.
- He made a comment about Sarah.
- Like what?
- Said she was a firecracker.
- Oh you know what it's like
when you come back
to your hometown.
People remember who you
were and not who you are.
Sarah was a...
Was a bit of a rebel.
- That's one of the
things I love about her.
- Come on.
- Greg, is
there anything else on?
The kids don't wanna
watch football all night.
- I'm sure Ryan does.
- Oh, I don't mind.
- What's your team?
- Green bay.
- That's good to know,
now I won't get yelled at
every time there's a game on.
- Okay, just not now.
- I can never figure out how
these stupid things work.
- It's the one that
says channel, honey.
- What would I do without you?
- Went missing in
the early hours of the morning
lat Wednesday.
- Hey, turn it up.
- The bar owner
and some of their patrons
said they saw her
seated at the bar alone
for the majority of the evening.
Police have since
canvassed the area
and have come up with nothing.
Authorities are
requesting that anybody
with any information
regarding Julia Mahoney
please contact the Lincoln
county sheriff's department.
- Wow.
- You think she's dead?
- Hey, Ryan.
- What?
- Stuff like that
doesn't happen up here.
- But isn't it the perfect
place to do something?
I mean, we're in the
middle of nowhere.
- Ryan.
- Just sayin'.
- Well, people out here
look out for each other.
- Or so you think.
- Not funny!
- We're gonna
be just fine, Sarah.
- Hey Carl,.
- Hey, I brought
you some firewood.
I figured you could use it.
- Well, that's very
nice of you, Carl,
but we've got plenty.
Anything else?
- Snow's supposed to get pretty
bad the next couple days,
I wouldn't want you to freeze.
- As I said, Carl,
we're good here.
But thanks for dropping by.
- That guy is a nut job.
- Sarah!
Mom, come on.
- Probably just lonely.
- I may have asked
him to stop by.
- Seriously?
- Sarah, I didn't
know what else to say.
I didn't think
he'd actually come.
All right, it's fine, he's gone.
Wash up, it's dinner time.
- Ryan, could you do me a favor?
Could you get some more
firewood from outside?
I'm gonna help Natalie
in the kitchen.
- Yeah, sure.
- Yeah, just a second.
Did ask if anyone needed
to use the bathroom.
- You doing that on purpose?
- What?
- Driving me crazy.
Que pasa, what's this?
- Open it.
- Really?
I gotta warn ya, if
it's an engagement ring,
I'm not really ready for
this kinda commitment.
Sarah, it's too much.
- Merry Christmas.
- It's perfect.
Come here, thank you.
- Mm-hmm.
- You know?
I'm kind of in love with you.
Just a little bit.
- My parents are still awake.
- Well, you are gonna have to be
extra quiet, Mrs. Emerson.
Great fort.
- It's a duck blind.
- Yeah, I knew that.
- Mmm-hmm.
- Right here?
- Yeah.
- All right, m'lady.
- Thank you, sir.
- Down you go.
- You okay?
- Yeah, here, take your gloves.
- Thank you.
- Here you go.
- Merci.
- Cheers.
- Wisconsin wine.
- You know, I don't think
your dad likes me very much.
- He likes you.
He's just being protective.
He'll warm up.
- Well, he better.
'Cause I'm not going anywhere.
- You better not.
- I'll take it.
- Okay.
- Yeah, I'll take it.
- Such good potatoes.
- You like 'em?
- Yes.
- I tried something new
with them this time.
- What?
- You want these, dad?
- Well, I used a
different seasoning.
- They're crispy, I
like 'em like that.
- Yeah?
- Mm-hmm.
- I've found that
potatoes are one of the
easiest things for me to make
so I've been eating
way too much starch.
- One of the few
things you don't burn.
- True.
- I've yet to meet
potato I do not like.
- Mom, we always eat so early.
- It's tradition.
- Don't mess with tradition.
- And now Ryan
gets to be a part of it.
- Well, I love it.
- Aw, you kiss ass.
- No, I'm good.
Could you pass me the
butter please, sweetheart?
- No, I got it.
Here ya go.
These carrots are fantastic.
- Okay, since I'm always
the one to pass out gifts,
I decided dad's gonna
do it this year.
- What happened to tradition?
- Will you be quiet?
- All right.
To Ryan.
From Mr. and Mrs. Thomas.
- That was Sarah's
We thought it would be
special for you to have
now that you're
part of this family.
- Thank you so much.
Thank you, Mr. Thomas.
- You're welcome.
To Mr. Thomas
from Ryan.
Where'd you get these?
- I have a friend
south of the border,
Sarah told me how much
you really like cigars.
- Cool.
Thank you.
- All right, mom,
this one's special.
I want you to open it now.
Hey, you ready?
- Let's go.
- All right, ladies
and gentlemen,
give it up for
the very talented,
very yummy, Tyler Patterson.
- Thank you for
that introduction.
- He's good, right?
- Yeah, he's okay.
- Uh-oh.
- What?
- You jealous?
- No, what?
- No, I'm definitely not
jealous of your handsome,
Even if he does
have a smile that
could melt the polar ice caps.
- Well, he doesn't melt me.
- No?
- No.
There's only one man
that can do that to me
and that is my fiance.
- Really?
You're engaged?
- Yeah.
- What?
Must be one heck of a guy.
- Yeah.
- Yeah?
- You're kinda stuck with me.
- That's a good thing 'cause
you're kinda stuck with me too.
- Oh my god, Tyler, hi!
You did so great.
- Thank you guys for coming.
- Of course.
- Good job, man.
- For a little bar out
in the middle of nowhere.
I'm sure you guys see
plenty of talented people
out there in California.
- There's a few.
- Well I'd love to get
out there some day.
- Oh you should come visit us.
- Thank you, but it's
kind of hard to get away
from my mom right now with
my dad leaving and all.
- Okay, well you both will
definitely have to come out
for the wedding.
- We wouldn't miss it.
Hey, let me get you
guys another drink.
- Sure.
- How 'bout you, Ry?
- Why not?
- Yeah, that a boy!
Three more shots please.
- You got it.
- What was that?
- I don't know.
- What's going on?
- It's okay, honey,
we just heard something.
- I don't know, someone
was knocking on the front door.
- I don't see anything.
- Oh my god.
- Greg.
- Stay there.
- Why would anybody be
coming here right now?
- I don't know.
- Greg, what's going on?
- You see anything?
- Nobody.
- What are you doing?
We don't need a gun,
somebody's gonna get hurt.
- Dad, what are you doing?
- Something is going
on right now, Natalie!
- I'm calling the police.
It's dead.
- It's okay, stay there.
- Dad.
- Greg.
- It's okay.
- Oh my god!
- No!
- Oh my god!
- Run!
- What's going on?
What's happening, oh my god.
- Hey, where are
the flashlights?
Stay here.
- My god.
- Put these on, we have
to make a run for it.
- We can't go out there.
- Well we can't stay in
here either, come on.
Run, run!
Come on, come on, come on.
No, no, no, no, damn it!
- I got out there and I
just I ran, I'm sorry!
- It's okay, it's okay.
Did you see anyone
else out there?
- I don't know, all I
know, one got inside.
- Listen, Sarah, listen to me.
We've gotta find your mom,
we've gotta get the
key to the truck
and we've gotta get out of here.
- I don't want to go
out there, he's out there.
I don't want to...
- Sarah!
Listen to me, okay?
I'm just as scared as you are.
But I need you to keep it
together because if you don't,
we are not gonna make
it out of this alive.
Can you do that for me?
Take this.
- Why?
- In case we get separated,
you gonna need more than one.
- We can get separated, Ryan.
- Yes, Sarah, yes
you can, yes you can.
We have to go now, okay?
Let's go.
- Carl?
- Come on, let's go around back.
Check the bathroom.
- Okay.
Ryan, she's in here!
- Oh my god, I had no
idea where you were!
- We were in a duck blind,
we thought we lost you.
Let's get the keys
and get outta here.
Oh my god.
No, no, no, no.
Why are you doing this?
Help me!
- Sarah?
Oh god.
Please wake up, wake up.
Let's go, we're
getting outta here.
Let's go.
All right, baby, come on.
Sarah, Sarah, wake up.
Oh thank god.
- Where is he?
- I don't know, I don't know.
- Where's my mom?
We gotta get to the car.
- Sarah.
She tried to get
away in the truck but
she lost control,
crashed in the ditch.
I'm so sorry.
I'm so sorry.
Okay, listen, we
gotta get out of here.
I'm not dying here today
and neither are you,
do you understand?
I love you.
- I love you.
- Go, go, go!
Come on!
- Ryan, slow down, I can't run!
What are we gonna do?
- I don't know,
just keep going!
- I can't keep up with you!
- Sarah, listen to me,
they know where we are.
We can't stop, we have
to find a place to hide.
Come on.
- Woah, woah woah, Sarah!
- Tyler!
Tyler, Tyler, you
gotta help us, please.
Tyler, they're
trying to kill us!
- Okay, calm down, who's
trying to kill you?
- I don't know, we
gotta keep moving, now.
- Okay, well, let's, follow me.
- Wait, what
are you doing out here
in the middle of
the night, Tyler?
- Oh my god, Ryan,
he's going to help us.
- Answer me!
- I heard gunshots coming
from your place, okay?
And with everything that's
been going on lately,
you know, people are
kidnapped, there are break-ins,
I wanted to check on her.
Now, let's go.
- Tyler!
- Sarah, run, run!
- You chicken shit.
Don't even have
the fuckin' balls
to show your face to me, huh?
What, got nothin' to say?
Ya cock sucker.
Come on!
Who are you?
Let me go.
You fuckin' pussy!
I don't wanna die.
Let me go, let me go now.
- No!
No, no.
hey, wait!
- Surprise.
- What?
I saw you...
- dying?
Well, I had to take the
attention off me somehow.
So cliche to have the
jealous ex be the killer.
We've all seen that
before, boring.
You're so gullible.
It's really cute.
- How could you do this?
- How could you think
that's it's okay
to go off and
marry someone else?
But I do owe you an apology.
Hey, I'm sorry for hitting you.
- Fuck you.
- Hey, there's no excuse
for that kind of behavior
and it's not gonna happen again.
I'm sorry.
You're just so hard
to pin down, you know?
I always knew there was
something special between us.
Then we had that
magical summer together
and I knew that I
can't live without you.
- What?
- Then you just left.
I don't understand
how you could just,
just walk away from
everything that we had.
- Stop.
- It was supposed to be me.
- No!
- And now it can be.
- I am so proud of you.
I just knew you two
would end up together.
- She did, she did,
she always used to say,
"you're gonna marry
that girl, Tyler."
And here we are, it's fate.
- Now.
- Okay.
- I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
- Do you like it?
- You people are sick.
- Mom!
- Don't you talk
about my son that way.
- Mom, what the hell?
- Oh.
Oh, I,
I am so sorry.
I'm just, I'm just
a protective mom.
- It's okay, it's okay.
It's okay.
Mom, can I have a
moment with my fiancee?
- Of course.
- Alone.
Can I have a moment
alone, is that okay?
- Alone?
Well, it's,
it's your night.
I will,
I'll be outside if you need me.
- Thank you, thank you.
- Hank, I told you those pieces
were gonna weigh you down.
- I tried to move on.
See other women.
You met Julia, she
was pretty, right?
I was hoping that she could
fill the hole in my heart.
But she didn't
understand what it meant
to be with someone
so I let her go.
- You did that?
- She wasn't you.
No one, no one can be you.
No one can compare to you.
No one can compare with you.
Everything's gonna be okay now.
- Stop.
- It's okay now, hey.
It's okay.
It's okay, it's just us now...
Hey, hey, hey, I'm gonna
be right back, okay?
I'm gonna be right back.
No, mom, mom.
Mom, mom, mom, no no no.
Hey, I'm gonna untie you.
I'm gonna untie you but
you have to promise me
that you're not gonna run.
I can't lose two
people I love, okay?
Let's go!
- Ow!
- It's just me and you now.
- Ow, no!
- Get in the car!
- No, no!
- Don't touch the fuckin' door.
Stay right there.
Oh fuck.
- Ow!
- Where are the keys?
No, no, no, look for the keys!
- I don't have
your fucking keys!
- Fuck, god,
Stay here, don't move.
- Mom!
