Only Humans (2018) Movie Script

I talked to Vivian.
She said Madison made head cheerleader.
Good for Madison.
Could be good for you too.
Maybe she could get you on the squad.
I'm not interested.
Aw, come on, you'd look so cute
in one of those little outfits.
Never gonna happen.
Oh, my God, Jesus.
The car in front of
me just stopped short.
Because there's a stop sign.
You should be more alert.
Well maybe if you were
actually teaching me
how to drive and not
putting on your lipstick.
I think you inherited the
bad driving gene from me.
No, I just need more practice.
You promised we'd go twice a week.
Why don't you get a
boyfriend to drive you around.
Right, right, your
solution to everything.
Well when I was your age, I had several.
What about Evan?
Evan doesn't drive.
Anyway, the person has to be over 25.
Why don't you ask your dad?
You'll mind him, he has a daughter.
Hey, learn how to drive!
Oh, that must be Silvia's son.
Poor thing.
You must be Vince.
Uh, yeah.
So good to finally meet you.
Your mom told me so much about you.
And you are?
- I'm Nancy.
- Oh.
I live next door, and your mom
was a wonderful friend.
Aw, thank you, it's
very nice of you to say.
And this is Sarah, my daughter.
- Hi.
- Hi.
She's shy.
So how long you gonna stay?
Just to get the place ready.
We're selling it.
Of course.
Is Elizabeth coming?
No no no, just me for now.
Well, please, if
there's anything you need,
don't hesitate to come by.
Okay, I appreciate that.
Just me and Sarah, don't be a stranger.
All right, it was nice meeting you both.
You too.
He's cute.
He's younger than you.
So, isn't that
like against your rules?
You do have a point.
I don't have time to
waste on a younger man.
Glad you've thought this through.
I'm going in.
Come on.
Curvy, feminine, fun-loving woman
in her mid-40s,
no, in her
Looking, hey, Sarah!
Will you come here a minute?
I wanna show you something.
For a,
should I, come here, I wanna show you.
Look, come here.
Mom, I really wanna finish this piece.
Oh, you can take a break from your
painting for one second.
Just come here, look.
All right, what do you think that...
Is that, curvy woman in her prime?
All right, look, can you
please take a picture?
Because, I tried to take...
Can you just take a selfie?
I did, look at this, it's terrible.
Yeah, you have to hold it higher.
Up, higher.
Is that how they do that?
Good, okay, have fun.
Hi, Vince, it's Mom.
I just spoke with Margot.
Honey, I hope you're doing all right.
Call me back, sweetheart.
Vince, it's Mom again.
Why aren't you returning my calls?
I hope you're taking care of yourself.
I know how you can get.
Call me.
Love you.
I'm outside.
I'm busy.
Come on, open up.
So I wonder if Sarah will go
to the new Transformers tonight.
Forget it.
Come on it'll fun.
No, I wanna keep working on this.
Can I see it?
Come on.
Show it to me.
Just once.
Dream on.
Oh my God.
Are you okay?
I'm fine, thank you.
Let me help you.
Oh no no no no no no, ow, don't do that.
Oh sorry.
It's okay, it's okay.
Oh, I don't know how
I'm gonna get this place
cleaned up in a month.
A month?
Yeah, actually a little less than that.
Oh my God, you need help.
Hold on, Sarah?
Check out this video,
it's just a little fuzzy.
Can you come
down and join us please?
Evan's here.
It's okay, just for a second.
Come on.
I have a great idea.
What's up?
Vince just told me that
he's only got a few days,
well a few weeks, to
clean out his mom's house.
And you need driving lessons.
Oh, I doubt that she
wants to spend her summer
cleaning up my mom's, I
don't think that's a...
If she wants to get
her license, she does.
I've been very busy.
Maybe if you didn't
go on all those dates.
Honey, please.
Thank you, but I'll
figure it out, I will.
You really need help, don't you?
And you really want
driving lessons, right?
So now's your chance.
Okay, I gotta go, so
why don't you help Vince
clean up this mess now?
You stink.
I gotta bounce.
You don't have to do this,
you do know that, right?
It's the only way I'll get
my license before I'm 30.
But if I'm in your way, then I...
No no no no, no, I could
actually use the help,
so that'd be great.
How about we get started tomorrow?
That'll give me a day to organize things.
See ya.
I need a sexy, this is not a sexy one.
Oh, hey, how are you?
At least you organized all this stuff.
Yeah, I didn't quite
get as far as I had hoped.
So where should I start?
Uh, good question.
Let me show you around, and
then we can figure it out, yeah?
Cool, watch your head here.
So we need to go through all these.
I think most of this side and that there
is probably my mom's stuff.
My sister should be coming
sometime in the next week
or two to get her stuff too.
And yeah, so, I guess that's it.
Sorry, so that's,
tight quarters.
That's the tour, I guess.
So, what do you do in the real world?
I'm getting my PhD in philosophy.
How long does something like that take?
In my case, like
eight years.
Is it supposed to take that long?
No, not exactly.
So what's it about?
What about ethics?
Acting on the motive of duty.
Basically, arguing that we
can always do what is right.
But what if you don't know what's right?
Well, once you recognize
what you oughta do,
then you can actually do it.
Okay, but what if I
think is right isn't what
other people think is right?
Who decides what's right anyway?
I guess you'll just
have to read my thesis.
Yeah, I'd like that.
No, you probably
wouldn't actually.
So how do you like Findlay?
The teachers are good,
they pretend to care.
I don't know, I'm just
ready for whatever's next.
When I was there, all anyone cared about
was football, or theater.
Or theater?
Then nothing's changed.
So what is next?
Oh, um, I guess I'll
start on one of these boxes.
No no no, you said you're
ready for whatever's next.
I'd like to travel.
Go to Europe, see some art.
Europe's great, I
spent some time in Spain
after undergrad, actually almost stayed.
I'd like to go to Germany and Austria.
What's in Austria?
My favorite painters are Austrian.
Like Egon Schiele, Kokoscha.
No idea, never heard of them.
They've totally shaped my style.
I guess that sounds pretentious but
there's just this intensity to their work,
like it grabs you.
I want people to feel something
when they look at my paintings.
So what do you think about this guy?
Mm, no comment.
What, this beautiful
explosion of primary colors
doesn't move you?
Come on.
So what, donate?
Is it that bad?
It's for the best.
You're killing me.
(Nancy laughing
Shh, don't wake up Sarah.
We wouldn't want that.
Stop it.
Hey hey hey hey, hold on, hold on.
I got it, let me get that for you.
- Thanks.
- Of course.
This trade-off requires no heavy
lifting for you, all right?
Got it.
Who's hungry?
What happened to your girlfriend, Vince?
I mean, your mother made it sound like
it was pretty serious.
Just didn't work out.
Wanna be more specific?
No, not really.
I'll find someone for you.
I'm good.
I mean, if I were 10 years younger,
I woulda found her already if
you know what I mean.
Everyone knows what you mean, Mom.
There is a girl at work, though, that
I really like, she's nice and pretty and,
I think she's single.
I'm good, I'm kinda taking
a break from relationships
right now, but thanks for the offer.
You're almost 40.
You don't have time to take
a break, don't you want kids?
I don't know, I can't
really answer that question.
It's the greatest
pleasure of life, look,
well not that she's a prime example.
Sarah's actually
been a huge help already.
She's been really great.
That's a nice thing to say.
I am really glad this
is working out so well.
Okay, I have to go.
Be good, you two.
Bye, thank you for the food, Nancy.
You're welcome.
Interesting woman.
She certainly has a lot of energy.
That's a nice way to put it.
So what do you say we drive this stuff
to Goodwill tomorrow?
No, I meant, I meant you drive it.
Yeah, okay.
I mean, that's the deal, right?
Isn't that we agreed to?
Yeah, mm-hmm.
Is she always that chatty?
And full of opinions?
What the fuck?
The door was open,
didn't you get my text?
No, I was helping Vince.
Vince, the guy next door.
Anyway, this is shit.
Close the door.
Where did that come from?
It's not raining.
Oops, is that better?
I think that's how they go.
It's all right.
Just focus on the driving.
I'll cover the music, all right?
That's better, right?
Let's go to the one in Glendale?
There's one in Riverside.
Yeah, but that'll give
us more time to practice.
Oh, okay.
Is that cool?
You can go faster than three
miles an hour if you want.
Can I have one?
Do not tell your mom, all right?
So you know you shouldn't
give me a cigarette,
but you did anyway.
So now you're gonna give me shit?
You want me to take it back?
I don't know, all that
talk about your thesis.
The right thing to do, what we oughta do.
Now you know why it's
taking me eight years.
Oh, shit.
You scared me.
Your mom said to come get
you, didn't mean to interrupt.
Hey, that's me.
Do you like it?
I mean, I expected you to be good,
but not this good.
I like how thick the paint is.
You almost want to touch it.
Go ahead.
Nah, I wouldn't wanna ruin it.
I can fix it if you do.
Ah, so I'm ready whenever you are.
Okay, um, I'll be right over.
You can go a little bit faster.
You don't have to drive so slow.
Watch this intersection.
You're good, you're good.
Who is this?
It's Onramp Lovers.
I like it.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I discovered them
at a music festival a couple years ago.
With your girlfriend?
Left here.
Come on, you're no fun.
Stop, stop, no.
It's green.
Sarah, no, you're
not, I said stop, okay.
Put your hands back on the steering wheel.
Put your hands on the wheel.
Just calm down, is your foot on the brake?
All right, now do not do anything
until I tell you to, okay?
Keep your blinker on.
Are you ready?
Okay, now go.
Perfect, perfect.
Are you all right?
No, I don't, no, I
don't wanna drive anymore.
Hey, hey, hey, okay, up here,
just pull in up here.
Just pull in over here.
That was awful.
Hey, hey, these things happen,
that's why we're doing this.
Look at me, look at me.
I'm sorry that I yelled
at you, I didn't mean to.
I'm sorry, I didn't mean to.
Can you please just, Sarah, please.
Just get back in the car.
Get back in the car.
Put your seat belt on.
So this is my attempt to look
sexy for
you know who.
Outfit of the day, as they say.
Hashtag OOTD.
You look nice.
Where you going?
I need a ride.
What is Vince's deal?
What do you mean?
What happened to his girlfriend?
I don't know.
What, don't you guys talk?
Yeah, but not about stuff like that.
What do you talk about?
Like art,
he said he almost moved to Spain.
Oh, no wonder he's single.
What do you mean?
Well, gallivanting all around Europe,
instead of settling down.
Maybe he's not ready to settle down.
He's almost 40.
So? Not everyone feels the same way
about timelines as you do.
You don't have to protect him.
I'm not judging him.
You judge everyone.
Nancy, the doctor will see you now.
Oh, thank you.
Nice to see you.
You too.
Okay, right here.
I'm so excited,
I can't wait to see...
Hi, sweetie.
I'm Dr. Burke.
Are you okay?
Of course, sweetie.
You have a very hip mother.
I finally figured out what to give you
for your graduation gift.
Grad, it's not for a while.
Why wait?
Okay, what is it?
A car?
A trip to Europe?
Matching lip injections.
Dr. Burke has a cancellation,
he can do us both now.
I don't want lip injections.
It's virtually a painless procedure.
Just right at the top.
Never mind, I'm gonna go wait outside.
Wait, it'll be years before you
can afford something like this.
It's my treat.
No, Mom.
You never listen.
I don't want it, God, no wonder Dad left.
That's not why he left.
Can I come in.
I'm sorry, I'm sorry, it's not funny.
What is wrong with her?
She's fucking crazy.
Hey, hey, easy.
Go easy on her, okay?
Someday, way before you're
ready, she'll be gone
and you'll regret all the shitty things
you said about her, believe me.
Anyway, I'm sure she only
wants the best for you.
What is that supposed to mean?
I don't know, it's just
what people say about parents.
She probably does, though,
just has no idea what that is.
I just, I need to get outta here.
You'll be on your
own before you know it.
No, like I need to get outta here, now.
Sorry about yesterday.
I know.
So we're cool, we're all good, right?
Do you think I need lip injections?
Absolutely not.
No, definitely not.
I mean, maybe a nose job, but
definitely not lip injections.
I'm kidding.
I was kidding.
- You're an asshole.
- It was a joke.
Just kidding around, come
on, you know you're beautiful.
I mean, you know what I mean.
I'm sure guys your age
find you very pretty.
Of course.
Ah, this should be it right here.
I can't believe it, I used
to come here all the time.
Can I drive?
Where, where you wanna go?
It's a surprise.
All right.
So what are you gonna do
when you finish your thesis?
Teach, I guess.
You guess?
There aren't a lotta
job listings for philosophers these days.
Is that why you went to grad school?
I did it honestly,
because I didn't know what else to do.
Which is why you should take the time now
to figure that out for yourself.
focus on painting.
My mom thinks I'd be
crazy to try and make
a living as an artist.
She says there's too many
talented people out there,
and who am I to make it?
That portrait that I saw?
It was great.
You're really talented.
Well you're like the
only person that gets me.
I doubt that.
This place is great.
It's nice.
My dad used to bring me here
whenever he needed to
get away from my mom.
So this was a regular thing?
Yeah, it was pretty much daily.
Now he won't even call me back.
Do you miss him?
I get why he left.
But do you miss him?
Yeah, I guess.
I don't know, I don't really feel much.
It's none of my business.
But even if he doesn't
wanna be with your mom,
he is still your dad.
So he should be there for you.
You're not supposed to do that.
I know.
You really are beautiful.
You did say guys my age
would find me very pretty.
You know what I meant.
Where the hell have you been?
Out is not an answer!
What do you want from me?
When I stay in, you complain
that I don't go out enough,
and when I do go out, you give me shit.
It is one o'clock in the morning.
You wouldn't care if you'd gone out,
but since you look like that.
You're not going anywhere until you
tell me where you've been.
To Evan's okay, can I go now?
Come on, Dad.
Pick up.
Pick up, please, come on.
You've reached Dan.
Can't stop thinking about it.
I can't stop thinking about it.
You've been busy.
So Lizzy's coming to
get her stuff this week.
She's gonna kill me if the
place still looks like this.
Can you, can you take those pictures
down over there and put them in a box?
Get started on that?
Sarah's not home right now.
Oh, uh, sorry.
Do you wanna come in for some lemonade?
Come on in.
So how long have
you and Sarah been an item?
She told me you were very close.
Yeah, she's been acting
kinda weird, to be honest.
Oh, what do you mean?
It's just that sometimes
I think she likes me,
and then, I don't know, sometimes I don't.
She's probably playing hard to get.
She was in a great mood last night
when she came home from your place.
Uh, yeah.
Thanks for the lemonade, but I gotta go.
Come by, come back any time.
- Yeah.
- Bye, Evan.
Do you wanna get some food?
You can order a pizza if you want.
I was thinking maybe
we could drive somewhere.
I gotta keep working.
Then I'm gonna go.
Jacob is on his way over to pick me up.
Do you think you could
find someplace to go?
Where am I supposed to go?
Um, I don't know.
What about Evan's?
Thank you, honey, you're the best.
You okay?
What's going on?
It's that older guy, isn't it?
I was talking to your mom, and...
What the fuck, why were
you talking to my mom?
Because I went to see you,
and you weren't there, as usual.
And she said that you said you were at
my house last night?
Yeah, she was being a bitch,
and I didn't wanna go home.
Do you like him?
No, why would you even ask me that?
Because you're always with him.
Yeah, because we're just friends, okay?
Look, don't go.
I'm just worried about you.
Don't worry about me,
and don't talk to my mom.
Mind if I come in?
Yeah, of course.
He totally blew me off.
He didn't even call.
Can you believe that?
You deserve better, guy
sounds like an asshole.
Thank you.
What about you, Vincent?
What about me?
You must have girls
lined up around the block.
I can assure you, there is no line.
We're both adults here.
I'm flattered, I am, but...
Are you?
Nancy? Are you listening?
Mom? What are you doing here?
Jacob stood me up.
He's such a jerk.
What are you doing here?
You kicked me out of
the house, remember?
What an imagination this one has.
Come and sit with me.
I am so glad that you and Vince are
becoming such good friends.
Why don't you have some wine?
Vince, would you mind getting her a glass?
Uh, okay.
Don't stay too long, I
think tonight's the night.
Men just want younger women.
It just doesn't matter how many crunches
or down dogs you do.
That's why I'm so glad you
finally have a boyfriend, honey.
I don't have a boyfriend, Mom.
Really, what about Evan?
Evan's not my boyfriend.
Well listen,
you can only play hard to get for so long.
Seriously, because
you have to finally just grab one,
hold on tight, because
if you don't, you just go
through other people's,
you know, leftovers, right?
I'm talking to you too, Vincent.
Let's go home, okay?
I'm conversating with Vincent.
I don't like
Evan, he's not my boyfriend.
It's fine, it's fine,
and you're talking too loudly.
I mean, I only said that
to cover for the other night.
I don't like him.
I like you.
Sarah, I like you too, but it's just...
It's fine, God, she's out cold.
Sarah, Sarah, please, come here.
Sarah, please don't.
It's not funny, it's not funny, Sarah.
Will you come back down here please?
Sarah, come on, Sarah.
Sarah, Sarah.
I'm serious.
Sarah, get outta the bed.
This is not, this is not funny.
Oh, my head.
Oh God.
Oh God.
Hello, is anybody here?
Oh, God.
Sarah, stop, stop.
She can't hear us.
Ohhh, oh my God.
You're talking too loud,
what's wrong with you?
It's not fucking funny, it's not a joke.
That was hot.
Let's do it again.
You have to go home.
You have to go, Sarah,
you have to go home.
Here, take these.
Thank you.
They'll make
you feel a lot better.
Thank you, sweetie.
What am I gonna do when
you go off to college?
I haven't even applied yet, Mom.
When you move to Silver Lake.
I'm not gonna move to Silver Lake.
You're gonna do a lot of fun things.
And I'm gonna be here all alone.
Mom, you're not gonna be alone.
I'm really sorry about the
way things have turned out.
Sometimes I think I could have,
we could have tried a little harder.
Mom, you guys fought all the time.
I know.
It's better with him gone.
Yeah, I guess.
We're doing okay, huh?
Hope I didn't embarrass
you too much last night.
It's okay.
Hi, how's she doing?
She keeps telling me she has a migraine,
as if I don't know what a hangover is.
She wants to live in a
world where you never grow up.
But I am grown up.
I thought you weren't
coming until tomorrow.
Got tired of play dates, so
I thought I'd just stop by.
I hope I'm not interrupting something.
No, no, of course not.
This is Sarah, she's been
helping clean out the house.
Hi, I'm Elizabeth, I'm his sister.
Sarah is Nancy's daughter.
Nancy, next-door-neighbor Nancy?
Yeah, yeah, she's been a huge help
packing everything up.
I brought lunch.
You should join us.
No, it's okay.
Yeah, yeah.
Of course, stay.
I can't believe Mom held on to these.
She pretty much held on to everything.
I would know.
What's that supposed to mean?
So, Sarah, you got to Findlay?
And you're a junior?
I'm going into my junior high.
So that makes you how old?
Thanks again.
See you tomorrow.
What are you doing here?
We're just having some lunch.
What's with you?
Okay, well, I'll just
leave you two then.
Come, stop, join us.
I'm not hungry.
I told you not to talk to my mom.
Well I came to see you.
You sure stare at him a
lot for a guy you don't like.
You're just jealous.
What is with you, are
you like in love with him?
Yeah, maybe I am.
Yeah, it's even worse than I thought.
I didn't mean it.
He hates me anyway.
Yeah, whatever you say.
What are you even doing here anyway?
Can't you take a hint
that I don't like you?
You know, you've
turned into a real bitch.
Are you sleeping with her?
Jesus Christ, of course I'm not.
Things might have gone two far once or...
Have you completely lost your mind?
It's been tough here,
alone, surrounded by all this shit, okay?
Here we go again.
What the fuck is that
supposed to mean, Lizzie?
There's always some girl who
adores you, and you love it,
and then eventually they
find out that you're only
with them because you're
terrified of being alone.
It's time you figured your shit out.
I'm sorry, you're one to talk.
Because I've been here
taking care of all this shit
on my own, actually.
I did the funeral.
And I offered to help!
Well, yes, but I had to do it quickly
and I couldn't just wait and
see if you would show up!
I fucked up, I know.
You just need to
talk to...
And tell Sarah that you made a mistake
and that you're sorry.
You're leaving in a
few days anyway, right?
Vince, are you listening to me?
Yes, I heard you, I'm listening.
It has to end.
I know.
Can we talk?
Yes, definitely.
I don't know what's going
on, but you were acting
really weird last night, and then you just
slammed the door in my face.
I know, I know.
And I'm sorry.
I forgive you.
Can we just hang out today?
It's Evan.
Evan, I thought you were upstairs?
I need to talk to you.
Oh my gosh.
Okay, Sarah, just
listen to me one second.
I don't know how to say this, but...
Let's talk tomorrow.
Just one kiss, and then we'll talk.
Fuck, oh my God, fuck.
we, we can't do this anymore.
No one's gonna find out.
That's not it.
I know that you're leaving, but
I can come visit you or you can come back.
No, no, this,
Sarah, this should have
never happened, okay?
You don't mean that.
I do, I do.
Of course I do, I'm 36 years old.
And you're 16.
This is your time to
make mistakes, not mine.
It's my time to get my shit together.
Doesn't feel like a mistake to me.
Sarah, this doesn't make any sense.
This can't ever be anything more.
I'm sorry, I am.
I never wanted to hurt you.
Hey, hey.
You're an amazing girl, you are.
And you have so much ahead of you.
But I can't be a part of it.
I'm sorry.
Sarah, I'm sorry.
Hold it, right there.
Stop, we need to talk!
We need to talk!
Sarah, open the door.
Sarah, open the door please.
How could you?
I trusted you.
I tried to stop it.
Oh come on, she's a child.
I never meant for this to happen.
You should be ashamed of yourself.
Believe me, I am.
Honey, be quiet, shh.
Be quiet.
Don't say her name!
Mom, can I talk to Vince alone?
No that is not gonna happen.
It's not gonna happen.
- No, honey, no.
- Please?
- Go inside now.
- Mom!
Your mother would be horrified.
Leave me alone.
Sarah, honey,
you need to open the door.
Just leave me alone, please.
Sarah, please open the door.
I'm so sorry.
I know it hurts like hell right now.
But this will pass.
How can you say that?
Mom, I love him.
I know, I know, I know you love him.
It wouldn't hurt this much if you didn't.
But you'll get over him.
No, I'm not as strong as you.
What are you talking about?
I can't just bounce back like you do.
Oh, oh, okay.
Well, that takes years of training.
You get better at it as you get older.
But it does still hurt,
every time.
I never see it.
Well, I don't want you to see it.
I don't want you worrying about me.
I'm sorry.
You don't need to be sorry.
You're gonna be all right.
You're gonna be just fine.
Jesus Christ.
Sarah, what are you doing?
You're leaving?
I know this doesn't make
any sense to you right now.
I do, but that's how it has to be.
I didn't tell her, I swear.
Sarah, you didn't do anything
wrong, this is my fault.
Look at me.
Stick with the painting.
I mean it, okay?
I will.
And give your mom a break.
She really does love you.
I'll try.
I should go.
Bye, Sarah.
Gosh, I'm sorry.
You really need to get
your hearing checked.
Is that me?
How wonderful.
Could you make me look a
little more attractive?
That's my style.
You know what?
Oh gosh, I just love it.
Love it.
Keep it up.
