Leona (2018) Movie Script

now that heavenly water
bathes your body
water sent
from Hakadosh Baruj Hu,
your connection
with him is total.
Like the day you got out
of your mother's womb,
your soul is clean
to unite with the soul
of the man you chose
as your life partner.
Blessed are you, Lord our God,
Ruler of the Universe,
who creates
the fruit of the vine.
One, two, three!
Mazel tov!
Thanks for coming, girls.
I love you a lot.
I wish your home
is always full of beracha,
that Ashem sends you a man
like the one he sent me.
Like Zury.
Thank you.
- Bravo!
- Hurray!
I'm going to miss you,
- I wish you the best.
- Congratulations!
May you be happy
and make him happy, too.
- Thanks, Mom.
- I love you.
Congratulations, darling.
Welcome to the family,
you're a daughter to us.
- Thank you.
- Take care of my son.
I love you a lot.
May you be very happy.
May you find someone soon.
I mean it.
Hold on, Aunt!
Girls, remember
Rebeca is a queen today,
therefore she can't be alone.
Hi, sweetheart.
Hey, Mom.
How was your day?
Fine, but I don't
how it will turn out.
What are you painting?
It's like a cluster of faces.
- A cluster?
- Yeah.
It's huge,
I have to get more paint.
How did your date go?
It was fine, he was very decent.
Yeah? Where did you go?
To the Grand Tao.
Way to go!
We had a good time,
but he is very stern.
Do you have a picture?
I was checking his Facebook.
This is him.
He's smiling.
He's not bad, Mom.
Don't exaggerate.
I didn't divorce your father
to marry another mute.
I didn't know
you want to marry again.
Why would I be dating
so many nutty men?
- Your time will come.
- No, thanks.
It's hard for me, but for you...
Come on, Mom. Don't say that!
Good night.
Good night. Sleep tight.
Look at that...
How long does it take you
to paint something this big?
It depends.
On what?
On how fast I am.
Two or three days.
Hi! How are you?
I'm fine, thanks.
You put the ceramic pebbles
under the planter.
- Where were you?
- And I told her...
You have to be careful
with the drainage of the roots.
I gave you one.
The names are similar.
Hi, sweetheart.
How cute!
She's heavier with each day!
So, tell me,
what are you painting now?
It's like a collection of faces.
Faces? Where?
In Juarez neighborhood.
Oh! Your grandpa used to own
a building there.
- On...
- Berlin.
- Berlin! Yes.
- Really? I didn't know.
Do they pay you?
- No, they don't.
- Yes, they do.
- No, they don't!
- Yes, they do!
You said they don't.
Well, they do.
The pay isn't that good,
but I get paid.
Did you watch
the Golden Globes yesterday?
Just the beginning, with my Mom.
- What about Cate Blanchett?
- Right, she's a diva.
- What a dress!
- No, she's a queen!
And her shoes and make up
were really pretty!
What is that bullshit?
You aren't a woman.
No, stop it.
Please, don't.
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
Hey, Dad!
Shia LaBeouf isn't Jew, is he?
Mich says he is,
that's why he filmed
the Holocaust movie
with Brad Pitt.
- Yes, he is Jewish.
- Really?
He's doing very well
with Transformers.
Here it says his mom is Jew
and his dad isn't.
A son of a Jewish mom is a Jew.
Hey, Ar!
Check this out.
Isn't he cute?
- Fortuna!
- Come on, Ar!
He is super cute!
He isn't super cute,
he's a regular guy.
Well, OK, but he is a great guy.
And... he asked me about you.
What did you tell him?
That you don't have a boyfriend,
- but I don't know...
- Did you give him my number?
No, I didn't.
I didn't, but...
You always do,
I don't want you to do that.
- What do you think?
- Nothing, he's a regular guy.
- I don't care.
- Well, think about it.
- I won't.
- Yeah, do it.
- He's handsome.
- Don't start, Mom.
I would ask you first!
No, you don't!
- I would ask you first.
- Right.
Think about it.
The sixth day.
And the heavens and the earth
and all they contained
were completed.
And God finished
by the Seventh Day
all the work which He had done,
and He rested on the Seventh Day
from all the work
which He had done.
And God blessed the Seventh Day
and sanctified it.
For on that day,
He rested from all the work
which He had done
in creating the world.
By your leave,
rabbis, masters, teachers!
- To life!
- To life!
Blessed are you, Lord our God,
Ruler of the Universe,
who creates
the fruit of the vine.
- Shabbat shalom.
- Shabbat shalom.
Shabbat shalom.
- Shabbat shalom, auntie.
- Shabbat shalom.
Shabbat shalom.
- Shabbat shalom.
- Shabbat shalom.
Come on, Ar. Think about it!
- I'm not a camel.
- I know you're not!
- Stop trying to sell me.
- I'm not trying to...
Mom, I can't talk with you.
You choose it.
Enough, choose everything, OK?
I'm going to hang up...
With Alfonso,
who else would I be with? Bye!
I'm sick of her.
I mean, I made it very clear
I wanted to choose
the center pieces.
Did she listen to me?
- I really liked them.
- Yeah, but that's not the point.
She has to get it's me
who's getting married
and it's me
who has to choose, not her.
- She's sick.
- She's excited.
I mean, she invited
all of her cousins.
It is indeed a wedding
for 800 people,
but for my guests not hers.
That's why she's not here.
It sucks to leave your mom
out of your hair testing
because she insists
that you wear a tiara.
"Mom, nobody uses tiaras
at weddings anymore!"
I'm sick of her,
she had her coming.
Relax, Rebe.
You'll leave and won't have
to deal with that.
I'm dying to get out
of that house.
I mean, my father is golden,
I love him, but my mom is crazy.
I won the bet.
What bet?
That I'd be the last
to get married.
Oh, well!
Hey, please schedule
a whole day for me, OK?
I want you to do all my friends.
Sure. How many are they?
Well, that is counting myself.
- Shall I count you in, Ari?
- No.
You won't do her,
she'll do her hair.
- How much will it be?
- 160 dollars each.
I'm telling you
because she's like that,
natural and free.
She doesn't care.
She does her hair and make-up.
She's gorgeous.
She does what she wants
and doesn't ask
anybody for money.
That's fab, really.
Yeah, because asking
for money is tiresome.
- Really tiresome.
- Yeah, besides...
she's very creative,
I mean, she's a crack.
She's a master in painting,
I swear.
I can't even draw a tree.
Whatever, I mean,
even if you marry a rich guy,
you have to keep working.
Right, because
what if I get divorced?
Bar minan!
What's wrong with you?
Don't be silly!
- Bar minan?
- That is, God forbids.
Don't be silly, girl.
Hey, this bit is a little loose.
So, did you go out
with that guy?
Well, your cousin's friend.
And have you met anybody lately?
No way, Ariela!
Where did you get it from?
I mean, where...?
From the office
I painted last week.
Well, obviously!
That's what happens
when you get into weird places,
in strange neighborhoods.
A guy will surely like you
and you'll hurt his feelings.
But I won't go out with him.
I mean, is he handsome enough?
Well, whatever.
It's OK if you go out once,
have dinner, then you tell him
you don't like him.
I mean, it's not that serious.
What's his name?
Ivn... that name
is really something.
What's his last name?
Lpez? Prez? Martnez?
- I don't know.
- What? I mean...
That name is really something.
"What's your boyfriend's name?
It's really something.
Is everything OK?
- How are you?
- Fine.
And you?
What would you like to eat?
Let's just go.
You've never come here,
have you?
Where are you from or what?
From here.
So, why haven't you come?
Because all my family,
my friends,
my parents are in the same place
and nobody ever comes here.
I'm Jewish.
This is my favorite
Is it good?
Tell me about your first tattoo.
It was a silly teenager thing.
Even the spelling is wrong.
Did your parents let you do it?
I never thought of asking them.
It would have been a good idea.
My parents would kill me
if I get a tattoo.
They think I'm a rebel
as it is for painting.
I was my family's
black sheep because...
I didn't want to be an artist.
What did they want you to be?
Well, my dad is
a theater director,
my mom teaches
Medieval Literature,
my sister is an art curator...
I should have been
a folk singer.
How did you start painting?
A friend from college
was painting a mural...
he asked me for help
and that was it.
And how do you get work?
In fact, in many ways.
And sometimes,
the community recommends me.
The Jewish community?
Other muralists.
And... are you very Jewish?
The normal.
Hey, speaking of food...
- Have you tried grasshoppers?
- You're crazy.
- Do you want to try them?
- No.
- Good afternoon.
- Good afternoon, sir.
- How much are the grasshoppers?
- 25 and 50 cents.
Could you give me a 25 cent bag?
Yeah, with lemon or plain?
With lemon.
More lemon.
- Can you add some more lemon?
- Sure.
- Hello?
- Hi. Is this Ariela?
- Thanks.
- It's Gabriel.
Fortuna, your cousin,
gave me your number.
Let's see how that tastes.
Would you like to grab
a coffee this week?
This week I'm very busy,
what about the next?
Sure, as you wish.
I'll call you next week then.
- Bye.
- Bye, take care.
You didn't like them, did you?
You're welcome.
- See you.
- Bye.
His driver picked me up,
can you believe it?
I don't think it's that weird.
It isn't, it's showing off.
Where did you go?
To Au Pied de Fouet.
Too fancy for my taste.
First, he was a gentleman...
then we ordered wine...
- Wine and everything, huh?
- Yeah.
And he turned into a beast.
In the car, he asked me...
to come over to his house.
Can you believe it?
How dare he?
On the first date.
Who are you texting?
A friend.
Fortuna's friend?
Who then?
A friend.
Goodnight, Mom.
Goodnight, sweetheart.
- The losing couple...
- We can't lose, huh?
- What?
- Pays the bill.
Is that true Jewish
don't eat pork meat?
- Nor bacon?
- No.
Dude, I took her to the pork
tacos at Coyoacn.
- They were delicious.
- Did you really take her?
but I didn't like grasshoppers.
Not a fan?
No, I don't. They're disgusting.
OK, I'm sorry.
Is the Shabbat cool?
I've heard a lot about it.
If the Shabbat is cool?
It's fine.
It's dinner at my grandma's
every Friday.
And do you think
we could come over?
- Do you want to go?
- Yeah, it would be nice.
What shall we bring?
my grandma's food is delicious.
She gets offended if you do so.
- Do you want a beer?
- Yeah.
- Sure.
- Yes, order some.
Rafa, four light beers, please.
- What?
- Come on!
Ariela, how does your parents
feel about not dating a Jew?
Honey, not all Jewish are
I haven't told them.
And... would your family
be cool about it?
Do you think
if you're still together
he'll get a circumcision?
Come on, Miguel!
That's bullshit!
- Cheers.
- Cheers.
That's right!
- They have food in that place?
- What's wrong with her?
There are snacks, I guess.
Are you hungry?
Hello? Yeah, no.
Hi, hi.
Right. Hello?
Hi, Mom.
Yeah, I stayed at Aline's.
I'm sorry.
I guess we'll go out to eat.
No, not at all.
No, I'll call you.
Go straight.
Quickly and don't open you eyes.
If you do, you'll break
the rules of the game.
Go straight.
What are you doing? It's OK.
Run, the lights will change.
- It'll be in your conscience!
- Watch the step!
- What conscience?
- Asshole!
So, would you rather...
know how you'll die...
or when?
If you know how you'll die,
you'll always be
avoiding that situation,
and if you know when...
I'd rather know when.
Don't you think
if you knew that,
you'll only be thinking
of that day?
I'd rather know how I'll die...
because most probably
I'll die of old age.
- No...
- Yeah.
Most probably,
you'll die of cancer.
Yeah, right?
It's getting trendy.
It's very weird.
Just imagine,
the students stick their gum
under the table
or Frida Kahlo's bed!
Dad, you haven't told me.
How was the play's premiere?
He did good.
The season was very short.
Two weeks isn't bad.
No, but for Shakespeare?
The king left two weeks
before the premiere.
King Lear,
a play's character, left.
The actor we got is good,
but this isn't a piece of cake.
- Hello!
- It's an organic process.
- Hello!
- Hi.
- Ariela?
- Yeah, hi.
You're beautiful!
You're a Casanova.
- Hi.
- Let me see your teeth.
What were you talking about?
You know your Dad.
He says the ending isn't
strong enough...
- Hi, sweetheart!
- Of course, it does!
it's good you changed Luis.
Excuse them, Ariela,
they are a bit lost.
No, Carlos is really good.
Yes, that's right.
Are you hungry?
- Yeah, I'm starving.
- OK, I'll continue later.
- I made huauzontles.
- Delicious.
Go see the play,
then tell me your opinion.
- Sure.
- Excuse me.
What are huauzontles?
You'll see in a while.
- Ivn!
- Yeah?
- Could you give me the dish?
- Sure.
- Hello?
- Hi. Ariela?
Who is this?
Gabriel. How are you?
Do you remember me?
I called you like
two months ago.
Right, I'm sorry.
We didn't talk again.
How have you been?
Look, I can't talk right now.
I'm driving.
OK... I just wanted
to invite you for coffee.
You tell me when.
Maybe next week. I'll call you.
- Cool.
- OK. Bye.
Here you go.
- Thanks, love.
- Thank you.
God, it looks delicious.
So, we're waiting
for their approval...
How is that?
You're not supposed to get old
until you're wise.
Oh, dear God!
Don't let me go mad!
Keep me balanced and sane...
- Carlos was very good.
- Right?
- For a two-week rehearsal...
- May I come in?
- Sure, come in!
- Come in.
- Hello!
- Hi!
What's up?
- How are you?
- Fine.
- Congratulations!
- Thanks a lot!
- Ariela, she's Adriana.
- Hi, nice to meet you.
Adriana, she's Ariela.
Ivn's girlfriend.
- He's Camilo.
- What's up?
- Congratulations, Camilo.
- Thanks a lot.
- She's Ariela.
- Hi.
Right, has everybody else leave?
- I guess...
- No, not everybody.
- Alfredo, do you have a minute?
- Sure.
- See you, guys.
- I'll be back.
Bye, thank you.
- Your character has bad luck.
- I know.
You always get to be naive.
We all had bad luck.
Oh, shut up,
I saw you fell asleep.
If Cordelia
had listened to his dad,
everything would have been OK.
Well, sometimes
you have to disinherit them
before they do.
To cut the cord,
leave the nest and that stuff.
We're back.
- I'm Ariela.
- I'm Carlos, nice to meet you.
Hi! Nice to meet you.
Yes, I'm Ivn.
We have been waiting for you.
- Here I am.
- I mean at the premiere!
There were boxes left.
Oh, unhappy that I am!
It's: "Unhappy that I am!"
Without the: "Oh!"
- Unhappy that I am!
- Unhappy that I am!
Like Professor Soler
used to say.
What was that?
He used to say the "Oh"
in: "Oh, Zeus"
shouldn't be uttered,
but inhaled.
In "Zeus!." You had to inhale.
That's pretty, right? So...
- So I just have to inhale.
- Unhappy that I am!
- Yeah! That's it.
- Bye, nice to meet you!
- See you, boy.
- Bye.
The performance was very good.
- Yeah, right?
- Yes.
We connected with the public
and it had...
Rhythm, right?
Yes, and musicality.
I felt communication
with the audience.
- It was great.
- Yeah.
And today, you found the music
within the text.
- Yeah, congratulations.
- Thanks a lot.
- Congratulations, Dad.
- Thanks.
Have you got any remarks?
No, not today.
Aren't you going to tell me?
What do you mean?
Oh, come on!
I always tell you everything.
And you?
It's nothing.
You'll make me guess.
His name is Ivn.
You don't know
what you're doing.
I'm not marrying him
or anything.
They'll talk about you.
And me.
Thanks. Good trip. Goodbye.
It's this wall,
what do you think?
It's fine.
- Does it work for you?
- Perfectly.
- I'll be in the front desk.
- Thanks.
I'll put this there.
That's it.
No! I know what's missing.
Well, charge this for now...
- Ivn!
- Yeah?
Come here.
What is it?
For the plates.
For the plates?
Let me see.
- Hello?
- Hi, is this Ariela?
Yeah, this is Ariela.
Ariela, how are you?
I'm Salomn Cohen.
We haven't met yet.
But I'd like to talk with you,
if you are free.
About what?
Would you like to meet
on Monday at 12
at La Raclette
so we can talk it through.
OK. I'll see you on Monday.
Don't worry, I just want
to discuss something
that can be very useful to you.
Yeah, OK.
Right, see you there
at 12, then.
- OK, bye.
- Bye, take care.
- Shabbat Shalom.
- Shabbat Shalom.
Is everything all right?
I think this is fine.
- This one?
- Yeah.
- OK.
- Fine.
Hi, here is your tea.
Hi, how are you?
God! Time flies by!
How old are you?
- How's your dad?
- Very well.
- Give him my regards.
- Sure.
I was very close
to your mother at school.
You know why we're here, right?
I can imagine.
How long has it been?
What do you mean?
What about we have
an adult talk?
I took the time to come
because I appreciate
your parents.
Let me tell your our story.
You sure know it.
A hundred years ago,
our ancestors arrived
to this country
and they were completely broke.
They didn't know the language,
they had no clothes or food,
they came by boat
from a civil war in Syria.
They were tired.
Just so you know,
my grandpa arrived to Veracruz.
He swore
he'd arrived to Argentina.
Do you know
how they get on, right?
Working. United.
If one didn't have a job,
their cousin would hire them,
their uncle would
lend them money,
their friend would
sign the guarantee.
Unity is our trademark,
what makes us who we are.
That's what the community
is made of.
Are you aware
you'll throw that away?
I don't feel I'm throwing
anything away.
You are with someone who thinks
very differently from us.
Not that differently from me.
Courtship is a bed of roses,
all is wonderful,
but marriage is an institution.
Once you get married,
you start to know your partner.
Then, you'll find out he thinks
totally differently from you.
Trust me, this is a mistake.
You'll regret it.
I don't think it's a mistake.
It's not for you.
You're still very immature.
You still have
to know the world.
Look, I'm sure
that guy is a great.
He's your boyfriend
for a reason.
But, why not a guy
from the community?
There are working guys,
successful guys.
Loving, too.
Meet other people.
You're neither the first
nor the last girl sitting here.
I've done this for years.
Fortunately, most of them
made up their minds.
The rest come back
with their tail
between their legs.
You'll come back
with your children
and the community
won't take you back.
Are you OK with that?
Have as much as you want.
Thank you very much.
- It's kosher.
- Thanks.
I had my doubts, but...
Come sit with us.
- Why?
- Sit down.
- Goodnight, come here.
- I didn't offer you a drink.
- What do I get you rabbi?
- A glass of water.
A glass of water, then.
Come here, sweetheart.
Closer, I don't bite.
Sit here, please.
Let's talk a while.
I've heard...
you're very committed
to what you do.
You paint, right?
As far as I know.
What do you paint?
- Murals.
- I see.
Where? In museums?
On the streets, on walls.
On the streets?
Isn't it dangerous?
- Here's your water.
- Thank you.
- Thanks a lot.
- It's OK.
Can I ask you a favor, Estrella?
- Sure thing.
- Could you leave us alone?
- Yes.
- Thank you.
I'm going to tell you
about a club...
One very private and exclusive.
Like the others,
this club works on a foundation.
This foundation are the rules.
These rules must be respected
by the members of this society.
Let's say one of the rules
is no smoking
and somebody wants to do it.
What would happen?
He'd be kicked out.
And why would that be?
- Because he affects the others.
- Exactly.
This club doesn't allow
conversions or proselytism.
It only allows natural members
in this society.
They must not be foreign.
The father must be a member,
the grandfather as well.
If there were foreign people
this order could be altered.
What happens when after a while,
you have children?
I don't want children.
You don't want to?
- No, I don't.
- Or both of you?
Have you talked about it?
It was a pleasure, rabbi.
I hope you come back again.
And we'll try to attend
your class on Monday.
- I'd love it.
- Thanks a lot.
- Thank you.
- This way, please.
- Goodnight.
- Have a good night.
Have you had sex?
Holy God!
For God's sake!
What did I do to you, Ariela?
What does it have to do
with you?
I'll be your children's
You'll regret
he was your first time
and that you didn't listen.
You are the one who doesn't.
I don't have to!
In this house,
my rules must be respected.
And I don't want to live
with a sharmuta.
- Hi, Dad.
- Hey, sweetheart.
I'm sorry I'm late.
- It's OK.
- I'm starving.
Yeah? The eggs with beans
and tortilla are great here.
Really? OK.
They always pretend
they don't listen.
Good morning.
Would you like
something to drink?
A grapefruit juice, please.
Sure, and for you, sir?
And orange juice
and we would like to order.
- Sure.
- Eggs with beans and tortilla.
A bagel with salmon.
Anything else?
- No, thanks.
- Excuse me.
Salmon here tastes like freezer.
No, I like it.
It's your decision.
What's up?
I guess you know.
All the community knows.
Mom kicked me out.
You've always been like this.
You'll let it go and you'll know
what's best for you.
What's his name?
At least he isn't a Jesus.
Can I stay with you
for some days?
No, sweetheart.
See you.
What's the name
of Ariela's friend?
- Isaac.
- He's cool, isn't he?
They've known each other
since school.
A Jewish school?
No, man. A public one.
Hey, have you met her family?
Not yet...
I don't know what to do.
I don't know
if I should tell Ariela
or leave it like that.
And why don't you become Jewish?
Even if you have to wear
sometimes one of those caps
to enter the temple.
Her family will be cool with it.
Trust me, it's much more
complex than that.
Why don't you get a normal girl?
Or get her pregnant.
They'll have to suck it up.
- Let me help you.
- Thanks.
Hi, grandma.
Close the door, please.
Where's Noah?
She's getting dressed.
What are you doing?
I'm taking her to the theater.
Oh, I'll give you money.
- No, I've got it, grandma.
- Sure?
Don't worry.
I don't know if my mom told you,
but she wants to kick me out.
I wanted to know
if I could stay here.
Sit down.
- Ariela...
- It's nothing.
I'm just dating a goy.
It happened to me, too.
When I was fifteen.
I didn't know.
I haven't told anybody.
What did you do?
I loved that guy.
And when I realized it...
my parents
and your grandpa's parents
have already settled everything.
I didn't leave my house.
Ariela, I don't like the way
you're doing things.
It's disrespectful
for your mom and the family.
I get times have changed,
but when I got married
with your grandpa I was fifteen
and I by eighteen,
I already had three children.
This is what gives meaning
to life.
Do you love him?
It's not about that, sweetheart.
- Hi!
- Hey, there.
- Are you ready?
- Yeah.
Let's go.
It's better if you don't
come over this week.
I want you
to think things through...
and then we'll talk.
Say goodbye to grandma.
- Bye.
- Give me a kiss.
The Canada thing is great,
right, Richard?
Truth is,
you were always a pushover.
How can you stand him?
Is maintenance included?
Yeah, in fact,
they'll clean it up.
I have to go.
These are the keys.
- OK.
- Call me whatever you need.
- Have you got my number?
- Yeah.
- Perfect.
- Thanks for the price.
It's OK.
It's amazing.
Thanks a lot, Richard.
I hope you do well there.
- Yeah, thanks.
- Thank you.
When shall we throw the party?
On Thursday?
But I want to buy
everything tomorrow.
What time do you finish work?
Well, it depends.
I'm currently very busy
in a project.
They haven't sent me
what I need,
the client is pushing me.
And you know, as always,
they send me everything late.
The other day,
they asked me to write
the frequently asked questions.
But how could I know about that?
Why do you ask?
You don't care.
Of course I do, you mentioned
the frequently asked questions.
No, you don't care.
We haven't even finished,
and you get up
like you don't care.
Ivn, I'm a few steps away,
but I'll sit down if you want.
That's not it, that's...
That's the least you could do.
I already sat!
You don't like whether
I stand up or I sit down.
What do you want?
You don't care
when it's not about you.
That's it.
Did you tell him she kicked out?
So? You told him
you fancied moving out?
He helped me find the apartment.
Is Rebe coming?
No, I called her to invite her
and congratulate her
on her pregnancy
and she said she couldn't come.
Zury told her
she doesn't want his children
get along with mine.
With your eight children.
- Exactly.
- That's bullshit.
- What?
- Congratulations.
Your house is incredible.
I miss you, I never see you.
I want to see you more often.
He's weird.
He's behaving very weird.
I did everything in my hands
to make him feel comfortable...
and it's not enough,
I don't know what he wants.
It's a goy thing.
Shut up!
What would you do today?
- My sister's exhibit is at 6:00.
- You're right.
I'm eating at my grandma's
until 3:00.
Do you want to do
something before?
What would you rather?
What would you rather?
To sweat mayonnaise
or just be able to eat it?
What would you rather?
Always speak your mind...
or to be mute?
What would you rather?
Introduce me to your family
or break up?
- OK.
- Wow!
I think that, too.
We've been dating
for eight months
and I only know
three of your friends.
Only three.
If we are together, it's all in.
Don't you think?
We shouldn't have restrictions.
I promise
I'll do something soon.
By the end of the month.
By the end of the month.
That's the camel's head.
Do you see it?
It means I'm going
to a place with camels?
- Yes.
- We are going, right?
- Who? Us?
- Yeah.
- As in plural?
- Yeah.
- It's my cup, not yours.
- On vacation.
I could have used
a reading like that
yesterday afternoon
before my terrible date.
You knew, right?
Beto's son story.
- He got married...
- No, he got engaged,
- Yeah.
- Then called it off.
- Because the girl was adopted.
- Right.
And since she didn't tell him,
he called it off.
- God!
- I think that's a hint
to know what type of family
they are.
Good Lord!
That's when I should have
declined the date,
because that runs
in the family, I mean...
- Hi.
- Hey.
This mural is a mess.
I don't know if I'll finish it
tomorrow or the day after.
Are you hungry?
I'm cooking fajitas.
It's now.
I'm cooking them now, not later.
OK, so no.
I got the wrong paint,
I had to start over...
But the client likes it,
he asked me
to paint another in his bar.
- Ivn!
- Yeah?
What's wrong?
It's end of the month.
Well, I don't think
it's necessary.
I don't need to know
your family to be with you.
That's easy to say,
because you know them already.
Imagine I'm an orphan.
If I was, you wouldn't be
telling me this.
But you aren't.
That's nonsense.
I can't force them to meet you.
You don't get it.
I don't get it.
Do you want me to go?
everything looks delicious.
Do you want some, Ariela?
Ari, give me your plate.
I'll give you
a little bit of everything.
I hope you like it.
I'll give you some guacamole.
Do you want
a little bit of everything?
That's it.
There you go.
How is everything, Ariela?
How is work?
I'm glad, and the graffiti?
What a cool job, I like it.
I need to use the bathroom.
What's wrong, Simn?
They broke up.
Thank God!
- Finally.
- Yeah, but...
- Is she sad?
- Really sad.
It's the best for her.
- Yeah.
- Well, it's over then.
Yeah, but it hurts me
she's in pain.
Not everybody has the nerve
to do what you did.
Now it's time to move on.
Things happen for a reason.
And trust me,
in the end, it's for the best.
Are you ready to order?
Yes, I'd like
a Caesar salad, please.
How do you prepare
Carbonara pasta?
It has cream, bacon,
egg and parmesan cheese, sir.
I'd like one, but
without bacon, egg...
and instead of Parmesan,
Swiss cheese.
Of course, sir.
I'll bring your order
in a minute, sir.
- No meat, please.
- Yes, sir.
Are you kosher?
But you don't eat pork, do you?
I do.
Who are your siblings?
I don't have, I'm an only child.
And you?
I have two siblings.
My sister Ruth is in college
and Beto, my brother,
works with me.
We work with my dad.
We have a clothing
and footwear store downtown.
If you want, we can give you
footwear for free.
Yeah, thanks.
They aren't high quality,
but they sell.
Don't you hate the music here?
I mean it, I come to relax
and have a nice meal...
and they have to play a concert.
I should say something, right?
The thing is...
I don't like music that much.
It's a bit distracting.
From what?
I don't know.
You like music, right?
You look like a concert girl...
Yeah, I can tell.
You can?
Well, I hate it.
I'd like
the salmon sashimi for her
and for me, the Koh Tao,
but instead of spicy tuna,
- Right.
- Without green onion...
and kakiage on the outside,
if possible.
- Sure.
- Thanks.
It doesn't have
any seafood, right?
No, sir. No seafood.
- Be careful, I'm allergic.
- Right.
I'll be right back. Excuse me.
So, what did you major in?
Graphic design.
I'm glad you didn't marry
when you finished high school.
almost all my friends did so.
And you?
Nothing, truth is,
I started Business Management,
but I didn't like it.
Honestly, school isn't for me.
And what do you do?
Well, I import, sell...
Anything, you know.
Hey, what is that?
Something in your eye.
What is it?
Little stars.
The ones that make your eyes
shine beautifully.
Truth is,
your eyes are beautiful.
You know?
My cousin is Ariela, too.
I like that name a lot.
- Do you want...?
- I'll use the toilet.
- OK.
- I'll be right back.
How long have you lived
in this hood?
A few months.
Who do you live with?
- Where do you live?
- At Las Lomas.
No, with my parents.
Do you want to go bowling?
- Yeah.
- Cool, right?
- Cheers.
- Cheers.
Then bend your arm.
- Right there, with power.
- Watch out!
You're getting better.
That was better.
Well done!
You're up.
It's spicy, but it's good.
I had a great time.
Me, too.
- Can we meet another day?
- Yeah.
My mind keeps telling me...
- Hello!
- Hi!
- How are you?
- What's up?
Sit with us for a while.
Hold on, we'll be right out.
- Ten minutes.
- We'll be right out.
Do you want a snack?
- No, Mom.
- Are you sure?
No, thanks.
I got lost.
Let me rewind it a bit.
- But your parents are outside.
- It's fine.
- I'll get a condom.
- OK.
We finally meet, Gabriel.
I told Ariela your last name
sounded familiar.
Where have I heard it?
I don't want to be
in the middle.
Sit there, you can be together.
- Thanks.
- So, tell me.
Who is your dad?
Arturo Halabe.
The owner of Santory shops.
- Exactly.
- God!
He would always be at my house!
- Really?
- Yes!
Make him a sandwich.
- What a surprise!
- Which one do you want?
That one is perfect.
I know him very well,
because he and my brother Moi
went to school together.
In fact, they were friends
for a long time.
- Didn't he tell you?
- No, what a coincidence.
Well, he was always at my house
talking about cars, etcetera.
I don't know your mom,
I only know her name.
Stop it, Mom.
You act like an old lady.
Let's change the subject.
Is it OK?
A little bit more, please.
So, tell me about yourself.
What are you interested in?
What do you do?
I work at...
He's got a massive
American football collection.
Look, that was my first helmet
and these are all my jerseys.
This is the whole collection.
It's amazing.
I didn't offer you a drink.
What would you like?
- Water is fine for me.
- Yeah, me too.
No way!
I'll bring you a beer.
Mom, you don't have beer.
Come on, of course
I have beers on the fridge.
Your mom is nice.
No, there's no guacamole today.
Give Gabriel some rice.
- Do it.
- Come on.
The kibbeh is
on his way, Gabriel.
Yeah, thanks.
- Like so?
- Yeah, it's fine.
Can I have an artichoke?
Does your father still have
the stores downtown?
Yes, well, we're still there.
Do you work there, too?
Yes, I'm the manager.
How cool.
- It's enough, Granny.
- No, no.
- Have some more.
- That's enough.
Excuse me,
I'll use the bathroom.
Where is it?
Hurry up
or the food will get cold.
- You know where it is, right?
- Yes, thank you.
- Excuse me.
- Sure.
I told you, he's a great guy.
He went to our house
the other day and truth is
he is a very polite guy.
A gentleman.
I knew you'd be a good match
since I met him.
You should be a matchmaker.
His father does really well.
I mean, he's not handsome,
but he's cool.
I like him.
Is his handwriting good?
They say
if the handwriting is good,
so is the character.
Watch out.
The peas are good, Granny.
I'm glad to hear that.
- Give me some kibbeh.
- The salad...
It's perfect here.
- Are you sure?
- Yeah, right here.
Do you want me to go with you?
No, it's OK.
God! I forgot...
- What?
- No, it's here.
It's fine.
- Bye.
- Bye.
I wanted to tell you something.
You don't have to do this,
you know?
What do you mean?
to be alone on the streets.
It's dangerous
and you don't have to anymore.
I can provide for both of us.
I mean...
It's not that you can't do it,
but you don't have to,
do you get it?
I do it because I like it.
- OK?
- Sure.
Give me a kiss.
Will you leave in your apartment
when you get married?
We haven't discussed it.
I swear, it's really great, Ar.
I mean, it's the coolest thing,
you become best friends,
you're all day together...
You say so because
you've been eons with Zury.
Yeah, I can't stand him.
I mean,
he leaves the mirrors dirty.
Who brush their teeth like this?
I mean it, he is like a seal.
I missed you.
You were on the wrong path.
Don't think I don't know.
Here, you got a message.
Let me see.
Zury, could you help me?
- Yes, honey.
- You won't do anything.
I mean, it's your turn,
and you'll feed him now,
you'll see.
You didn't need
to bash my tattoo.
How are you?
And your dad? His play?
Everything is fine.
In fact, the season is over.
Now he's rehearsing
Romeo and Juliet.
I won't see that one.
Give him my regards.
Are you still living
at Ricardo's apartment?
Now I'm paying full rent.
Can you pay it?
I miss Laura and Miguel.
They just got engaged.
- Really?
- Yeah.
- They did.
- That's great.
That's cool.
I don't know if you've heard,
I have a girlfriend.
Can I offer you anything else?
No, thanks.
What's her name?
I have to go.
Do you have plans?
Listen, we will have a barbecue
to celebrate the engagement.
You can come over.
In fact, I have to go, too.
Let's ask for the bill, then.
I got you!
They let them in,
then start complaining.
They should follow
Israel's example.
That's a bit extreme, isn't it?
- It's just my opinion.
- Please, Elas.
- Let's enjoy the meal.
- Exactly, just eat.
What a surprise!
- How are you?
- Oh, Gabriel!
- Have a seat.
- How are you?
I'm sorry for the delay.
- It's OK.
- Hi, nice to see you!
- How are you?
- Everything is fine.
- I'm glad.
- Enjoy your meal.
- Will you put a seat for him?
- Of course!
How are you?
How cute!
Let me say hi.
- Come here, Noah.
- Hi, Gabriel.
Darling, sit next to Ariela.
Gabriel, sweetheart!
How are you?
- What a nice surprise!
- Thanks.
I'll give you
a bit of everything.
Of everything.
Fortu, I bumped
into your friend Benny.
Oh, Benny! I love him.
Yeah, he's great guy.
You didn't tell me
you were coming.
- Surprises are better, right?
- Of course!
You're always welcome, Gabriel.
- Thank you very much.
- Anytime.
A bit of salad...
Hello. Father-in-law?
How are you?
This is Gabriel.
- Delicious, right?
- Indeed.
- I always have them here.
- They're great.
The best around here.
Hey, how's the business going?
Very well.
We just opened a store
in Quertaro.
It turned out very nicely,
I'm glad.
- Great, congratulations.
- Thanks a lot.
- Lots of blessings.
- Amen. Thanks.
By the way, it's not weird
to have breakfast with you,
but why so mysterious?
Truth is...
I wanted to ask
for Ariela's hand.
- This soon?
- Yeah.
Hold on.
- Thanks.
- I'm glad.
- Thanks a lot, sir.
- It's great.
You'll have to make her
very happy.
I know.
- And it's not easy.
- Yeah, I know.
But I am committed.
- Hi!
- Hi, Gabriel!
Baby, you came!
You look so handsome!
I thought you weren't coming.
That's beautiful!
- Look at that!
- Beautiful!
- Beautiful!
- Thanks.
So, tell us all about it.
- Congratulations.
- Congratulations.
- Congratulations.
- Congratulations.
It smells great.
It's pasta.
Hey, pasta,
you smell great, too.
- Leave it.
- I'll get burnt.
- Leave it.
- Move, I'll get burnt.
Could you turn off the stove?
- OK.
- Thanks.
Can you pass me the pepper?
The pepper...
Put some in here.
- How much?
- A pinch.
That's it.
Leave that for a second.
Stop it. Help me out
and put the table.
Do you want to go to the movies?
Ariela, what's wrong?
Do you come to the movies
to check your phone?
- I just sent a message.
- I don't care.
You never think about
what you say or do.
I didn't say anything.
Do you know a fucking light
in your eye is annoying
when you're trying
to watch a movie?
It's only a light, relax.
Gabriel, don't tell me to relax.
Don't tell me what to do,
that I can't paint.
If this is about that,
I'm sorry.
I never thought
you'd take it that way.
I just told you that because...
This isn't how I pictured it,
but I talked with your parents.
About what?
About getting married.
Everybody is very happy.
Getting married?
- Ariela!
- Don't follow me.
- Mom...
- That onion...
You take a big one
and cut it in slices,
then, you put...
- Hi!
- Yeah, but...
Hello, sweetheart.
Welcome, Ariela.
Hi, Ari.
Hey, Liz.
You cut your hair.
You look great.
- No, I'll serve you.
- Thanks.
Thank you.
You look very pretty.
Did you call Gabriel?
Call him.
We broke up, Mom.
You won't find
a perfect man, sweetheart.
That's not it.
You planned the wedding
without me.
"You planned the wedding
without me."
Well, it was a surprise.
I'd have loved that somebody
helped me with my wedding.
I did it all by myself.
We are different.
I know.
What do you want, Ariela?
I don't know.
- Don't think you can?
- No, I don't.
This is a much needed question.
Are you having children?
- We haven't discussed it.
- Five...
Come on, five?
That's cool,
you're six in your family.
- Hey, what's up?
- Surprise!
- Hi.
- Hey.
- Congratulations!
- Thanks, Sofi.
It's very exciting!
It's awesome! How are you?
Fine and you?
Sofi, this is Ariela, a friend.
- Hello.
- Hi.
- Hi, I'm Sofa.
- Hi.
I thought you wouldn't come.
My meeting was canceled.
- Cool.
- Yeah.
I hurried up.
- I'm starving.
- I'll bring you something.
- Yeah? Anything.
- Do you want anything?
- No, thanks.
- No?
No, thanks.
- The rib eye is excellent.
- Really?
- Yeah.
- Thanks.
can you bring me a rib eye?
Thanks a million.
- I'm really hungry.
- We'll be right back.
- There's so much food.
- Perfect.
- Here you go.
- Thanks a million.
- And a beer.
- Awesome!
- Cheers!
- Cheers!
- To the bride and groom!
- To Laura and Miguel!
- Cheers!
- To the bride and groom!
- Cheers!
- Cheers!
May they be happy.
Come on, man.
What's the meaning of Ariela?
It's lioness in Hebrew.
- How pretty.
- How cool.
And why
was your meeting canceled?
Does anybody want another drink?
- I'm fine.
- Me, too, thanks.
- I'll get a beer.
- I can get it for you.
I mean it, I read it and...
