Seaside (2018) Movie Script

Well, are you just
going to stand there?
That depends on you.
Really? I don't think so.
Kiss me.
If you let me in.
You are the worst.
You are.
Oh, not on your life.
Oh, come on, you might
like it if you try it.
How's he doing?
I don't want to talk about it.
Where's Roger?
- Roger.
- Yep?
He won't be awake much longer.
I need to give him his meds.
One sec.
Go ahead.
That feel good?
Mm, wonderful.
Thank you, baby.
All right, let's do
your legs and feet next.
Can't say no to that.
Tell me about your day, baby.
There's nothing special.
Just dealing with
these two fancy mama's
and their two fancy babies.
Sounds familiar.
Did another bill
from Wells Fargo come?
I didn't see it.
Are you sure?
What are you going to do
about it if it did come?
How are you going to pay it?
I get paid next week.
Your $12 an hour won't cut it.
It'll help, Ma.
Did it come?
Did it come?
We are not losing this house.
If I didn't see it,
it didn't come.
I'm having a drink
with Twyla later.
I'll probably just
crash at her place.
That girl from work?
She must have
a really nice place.
It's just easier and closer.
She lives on the west side.
You sure you don't have someone
you're not telling me about?
Rog, let me in.
Roger, come on.
Baby, what's wrong?
My dad.
Fuck him.
Fuck him.
I'm sorry.
Oh, shit.
I got to go.
I'm sorry.
Will you be okay?
You can go out
the front door now.
Are you sure?
We're free.
I'll be back soon.
Hey, you.
Are you sure you want me there?
Yes, of course I do.
Hey, I need you.
After you.
This is a sensitive
family matter.
Roger, we should
probably speak privately.
Yeah, well,
Daphne is my family now.
Good morning.
Daphne, welcome.
- Have a seat, Roger.
- I'm good right here.
Your father was concerned
that you are not living
up to your potential.
Cut the bullshit, Zorn.
Your father
left you the beach house.
And it's a property
of significant value.
He set up a trust that would
pay for all of its upkeep,
taxes, everything
is taken care of.
Big fuckin' deal. Why don't
you tell me about the money.
The 15 mil or so
that should be mine.
You father thought
that you would benefit
from learning
how to support yourself.
- What the fuck does that mean?
- Roger, please.
It means bar-tending
while you're waiting
for you inheritance
is not a career.
What about the Portland house?
He left you the beach house.
The remainder of his assets
are going to be set up
into a trust for any
heirs that you may have.
- Your children.
- Yeah, I know what heirs are.
If and when you have any,
they'll inherit 100 %
of the trust's assets.
And what if there are no kids?
- What then?
- Then the money will be divided up
into charities of his choice.
And you're the asshole
who determines
what those charities are.
- How fuckin' convenient.
- Roger, stop.
Roger, I have always followed
my clients instructions
whether if I agreed with
their assessments or not.
Did you follow his instructions
when you were fucking him?
- Roger.
- No!
Like father like son.
No, Roger is different.
Honestly, Daphne.
I'm surprised to see you here.
I strongly urge you
to reconsider your involvement.
You may find this
hard to believe but
we love each other
very much.
Then best of luck to you.
- Baby, are you okay?
- That bastard,
he's just doing this
because we're together.
It's okay, it's over.
- He's gone.
- No, no, no.
No, listen, maybe his
passive aggressive shit
is the best thing that
ever happened to us.
Ever since you came back
into my life
I knew we were meant for
each other so let's do it.
Let's get married,
let's have kids.
Daph, you love me, right?
We get the fuck out of town, we go to the beach,
we live our lives how we want to
and we tell everyone else
who thinks they know
what's best for us
to fuck off, hmm?
- When?
- Now.
Tomorrow, tomorrow, next week,
whenever you're ready.
But I have a job.
- I can't just walk out.
- Two years and you're still assistant floor manager,
you're better than that.
Hey, I want you,
I want this.
Let's make it official.
Is that a yes?
- Yes.
- I can't hear you.
- I said, yes.
- Yes?
- Yes.
- Is that a yes?
- A yes? Is that a yes?
- Yes!
Do you want
anything else to eat?
No, Ma. I'm fine.
For what?
It's for work, I told you,
it's a retreat.
My daughter, look at me.
I wasn't born yesterday,
you know.
I put some dinners
in the fridge for you
and if you need anything
just call me.
Look at me.
Don't you trust me?
Of course, Ma.
I don't want you getting hurt...
I am 24.
I'm not a child anymore.
...or doing anything stupid.
I put some money on the mantle
and if Wells Fargo calls,
just tell 'em
the checks in the mail.
- You okay?
- Yeah, yeah, uh...
Why don't you go on in?
I'll be in in a sec.
- You sure?
- Yeah,
Lookin' for something?
It used to be
my favorite thinkin' spot.
Want to come inside?
What, you scared?
Did Zorn really sleep
with your dad?
Well, that's
seriously unethical.
I don't really remember
much from back then.
After my mom died I was pretty
wasted most of the time.
So, maybe you should
contest the will.
Yeah, maybe.
I'd see Zorn
in the morning sometimes.
So, she was?
He never admitted it though.
Like I said,
I was pretty on fleek with the drugs at that point so--
Oh, no. Stop.
That's wrong.
That's just not how you say it.
On fleek?
Well, how do you say it?
Well, you don't use it to
describe how fucked up you are.
Well... were.
- Then tell me how to use it.
- No.
It's not happening
you just stick
to your stoner white boy talk.
Talk like a stoner white boy?
Yeah, you do.
You talk like
a rich stoner white boy.
Well, is that a problem?
Your dad come here much alone?
I don't know, why?
It doesn't seem like anyone's
been here for a long time.
He was sick.
Well, yeah, I know.
I just meant...
on the beach.
You know, my mom's
father built this house.
She loved it here.
And he couldn't stand it.
So, he made sure
I couldn't stand it either.
And then he gave it to me.
- Wait, you think he thought it all out like that?
- Yeah.
He wanted me
to be just like him.
On the company
and all that bullshit.
He was a sick fuck.
Honey, you are nothing like him.
You ready to get married?
Yes, today.
But I don't
have anything to wear.
I know just the place
we could fix that.
- Yeah.
- Well, come on, show me.
You look perfect.
God, are you there?
It's me, Roger.
Ha ha.
Well, I think
I know why you're here.
- We're ready for business.
- Well, you certainly get points for enthusiasm.
Well, when you know, you know.
Oh, love, it's just wonderful.
Can I please see your license?
We're in love,
that's not enough?
Sorry, it's the law.
No escaping.
- Damn.
- I, uh-- I'm sorry,
I just-- I, ah.
Three days, my dear,
and I'll be more
than happy to marry you.
- Hey, Daph, Daph! Come on, slow, hold on.
- How could I be so stupid?
Hey, shh, shh. It'll happen,
okay three days, hey.
Three days is nothing.
Three weeks ago
we were sneaking around
like naughty teenagers
and now we are in this
beautiful town, together,
with our own casa.
Come on, let's do something fun.
Like what?
Well, I don't know.
Something stupid
like bowling, or go-carts...
or Funland.
You're too-- this is not fair!
Didn't even make it
all the way up there.
This is great, babe.
I won! I won!
- Congratulations.
- Thanks.
- You proud of yourself?
- I'm so proud.
- Chad. Chad.
- What do you get? Look you get the little elf.
The skeet ball
machine's broken,
can you fix it?
Um, Daphne this is...
this is Susanna.
Nice dress.
we're getting married.
Ah, you hungry?
Let's go get some grub.
- But we--
- No, come on. Come on, let's go.
A wedding gift.
I need a drink.
Great idea.
It's nothing.
What's nothing?
That girl, Susanna.
We hung out sometimes,
like, a big group of
people during the summer,
it was a long time ago.
- Okay.
- Yeah, and that's it.
It's nothing.
It was a long time ago.
Maybe us not...
getting a license is a, a...
a sign.
Oh, wait.
So now you don't
want to do this?
I do.
What is wrong?
Nothing, I...
I do.
I just.
Look, you coming?
Suit yourself.
Hi, Mom.
How you doin', baby?
Well, it's beautiful here, Mama.
I know what it looks like.
- When are you comin' back?
- I'm not sure.
I think I might stay
a while longer.
Well what about your job?
I need a change of scenery.
You know...
a chance to try something new.
What do you mean
a change of scenery?
That jobs a dead end.
Excuse me, that is a good job.
You need that job.
- We need it.
- I thought my $12 an hour didn't cut it?
Who's there?
No one.
Daphne, you need
to level with me.
Don't you want me to be happy?
It is not always about happy.
Well, I know,
believe me, I know.
I have to go.
How much have you had to drink?
Not enough.
Daph, wait.
- Daph, let me in!
- No.
- Come on.
- You're being a dick.
Come on!
- Come on!
- No, I just want to go to sleep.
- Look, I'm sorry, okay?
- Look, I just...
I really need to out of
this stupid wedding dress.
No, no, no, no, no,
don't, I-- don't.
Okay, listen, listen,
I have a surprise for you, okay?
Okay, just count to--
count to 100.
No, no, no, 500. Count to 500
and then just
look out the window.
I'm not counting to 500.
Okay, okay, okay, um.
Well, I'll text when
I want you to come out.
Welcome to the rehearsal
dinner for the wedding
of Miss Daphne Miller
to Mr. Roger Kessler.
Would the future
Mrs. Kessler like a smore?
Come on, the smore is a staple
of the northwest
summer camp beach diet.
How healthy.
All right, let's see.
How about this one?
Yeah, sit.
Now, would you like it
golden brown...
or thoroughly scorched?
Thoroughly scorched.
Oh, yeah, that's getting there.
- All right.
- All right, there we go, there we go, there we go,
this is the one.
That's a beautiful,
that's beautiful.
Okay, will you do me
a favor and take this.
All right.
oh, God.
That is gooey.
All right.
Thanks for coming.
What took you so long?
Just exploring.
See what I could find.
Did you find anything?
Uh, oh, uh,
been waitin' for you.
Let's go.
- Where?
- Come on, you'll see.
My dad and I used to hike
up here when I was little.
Looked down at the beach and...
all the people
down there as little ants.
We'd imagine
what to do with 'em.
And what was that?
Well, we were God and they
were our little people
that we, uh...
we created and controlled.
Pick 'em up like this...
and squeeze 'em...
till they popped.
That's rough.
Yeah, dad always said that...
individuals don't really matter
in the grand scheme of things.
And what about love?
And what about it?
Do you believe that
love changes people?
True love.
Want to make a baby with me?
Yeah, why not?
It's au naturel.
Did you hear that?
Someone might be watching us.
See, just us.
What the fuck?
What the fuck?!
- Rog.
- Motherfucker!
Where are you going?
You crazy bitch,
get the fuck away from us!
Stay the fuck away!
What happened?
It's that bitch from the arcade.
Ten years ago, fuck.
That's it.
Okay, I swear
nothing else happened.
She's trash.
She's obsessed with me.
She claimed I got her pregnant
and she was just
after my fuckin' money.
Daphne, say something.
God, I...
I swear she is a crazy, lying...
and, and...
I was high half the time.
It didn't mean anything.
Daphne, look at me.
Daphne, please.
Say something, anything.
Well, it's not my fault.
Oh, it's not your fault?
- Bullshit.
- I didn't know that she worked there.
Damn you.
I didn't say anything
because it doesn't matter,
it means nothing.
Doesn't it?
No, it doesn't, not to me.
I mean,
if you hadn't started talking to her about the wedding--
Don't blame me!
I didn't fuck her.
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
I'll make this right.
I'll go talk to her.
We're supposed to be getting
married in the morning.
Okay, I guess.
Go for it.
Come on.
Maybe you should try that again.
That's it, beautiful.
- Your pretty new wife not doing it for you?
- Why, you want in on the act?
- What's that supposed to mean?
- It means you were the one spying on us.
Did you get your rocks off?
You're not supposed
to be here, you know?
- Hi, mom.
- Good to hear you voice, baby.
How you doin'?
I'm okay.
What are you hiding from me?
I think I made a mistake.
- What happened between us--
- Dropping me off at a Planned Parenthood
and then driving
into the sunset,
isn't exactly between us.
That was a long
time ago, I had to.
You had to? You had to what?
Follow your daddy's orders
instead of doing right
- by your girlfriend?
- I'm so sorry.
Why, baby?
What is it?
It's Roger.
I love him, Ma.
No, baby, just...
get away from him.
Stay away from that man.
Daphne, do you hear me?
I miss you, you know?
- Hey, hey--
- No, no, no.
I hope you can
understand one day.
Hi, uh...
Have you seen my husband?
Roger Kessler?
Well, what about Susanna,
is she here?
Sorry, she's off today.
Can you just tell me
where she lives?
It's really important
that I find her.
I'm sorry, I can't give
you that information.
How did you get in here?
You left the door open.
Where's Roger?
He's not here.
Well, everything was fine
until you started watching us.
Yeah, well what was
I supposed to do?
I haven't heard from you
in weeks. You stopped texting.
Well, Roger started asking
who I was texting.
That's why I had
to get rid of it.
I thought he stole you
away from me.
Of course not.
But we can't steal his money
if he doesn't have it.
You know...
he denied everything.
He said that
you slept together...
but only once.
Are you serious?
That fucking asshole.
Well, he deserves
to be taken down.
But things aren't
that simple anymore.
I mean...
Who knows how long it'll take
until I get pregnant?
When did you stop
taking the pill?
Three weeks ago.
That money is ours.
We deserve it.
Yes, but that means
I have to spend
nine more months with him.
I'll be here, I'm here.
But I won't be able to see you.
Or touch you.
And I have to walk
around carrying his baby.
I have to go to
that stupid arcade
and play those fucking
games just to see you?
I can't do that.
Yes, you can.
Yes, you can. Look, you are.
All of those years
of him and his family
fucking over everyone.
And we get the money and we run.
We go some place amazing
and we never look back.
I will finally get out
of this shit hole town.
No more stares from
people calling me a slut
for something
that was not my fault.
We'll go, we'll go to Italy,
or Paris.
As long as I'm pregnant...
then it doesn't matter
what happens to Roger.
Daph, no.
I'm not waiting
nine more months.
Wait, wait, we can't.
Well, you said it,
we deserve that money.
Do not forget
what he did to you.
And to me.
Oh, shit.
- It's that lawyer.
- Well then don't, don't answer it, not yet.
I have to.
Daphne? Alec Zorn.
Your boyfriend attacked
a local piece of trash,
turns out she had
a restraining order against him.
- He's been arrested.
- Well, is he okay?
Just calm down,
everything is okay.
You know, your mother wouldn't
be too happy to hear about this.
And now you care
about my mother.
Whatever, Daphne,
don't say I didn't warn you.
Hi, I'm here to pick up
my husband, Roger Kessler.
I'll just have you
fill out this form.
- I'll have an officer get him.
- Thank you.
- Baby, hey.
- Let's get out of here.
- The bitch called 911.
- Well, why?
- Fuck.
- Because she's fucking insane that's why
and I never touched her.
- Fuck.
- So, she lied to the police?
Yes, people lie all the time.
Can't you understand that?
And where's the fucking keys?
And this was all over
and done with
until you made me come back here
and look for some
perfect little life.
Get in.
Daphne, now! Let's go.
You know, you're sounding
a lot like your father.
- Roger.
- Fuck you.
Are you, ah...
I'm fine.
Just go away.
No, it's okay.
I can go, it'll just take a sec.
You sure?
Finding everything all right?
Oh, yes.
Okay, um, let me know
if you need anything.
- I will.
- Okay.
I need a pregnancy test.
Which one do you recommend?
I like that one,
I used that one when I had my daughter.
But whatever, that's just me.
Is everything okay?
I'll be at the register,
if you need anything.
Oh, have you seen my wife?
- Excuse me?
- You were just talking to her.
The first black person in
here in about a decade.
Yeah, so?
What are you doing here?
I think he knows.
Daph, where the hell are you?
Wait, how could he know?
He's been acting really strange.
Really aggressive.
You didn't say
anything, did you?
And you threw away
your other phone, right?
I smashed it into
a million pieces
and I threw it into the surf.
It's time.
Are you pregnant?
You are going to be
an amazing mother.
I'm scared.
Daph, we're doing this.
But right now
I'm handing out cotton candy
and stuffed animals
to fat tourists.
That's pretty.
my mother gave it to me.
Do you want it?
Open the door.
Have you seen Daphne?
Susanna, I know you're in there.
- Have you seen her?
- I'm going to call the police if you don't leave.
If you see her tell
her to get back to the house
and to stay
the fuck away from you.
How did he know I was here?
You didn't say anything.
No, nothing I swear.
we have to do it now.
I should go.
I love you.
I love you, too.
Where the hell have you been and why
haven't you answered your phone?
Did you get it?
Roger, I just got home.
Will you give me a sec?
We need to know now, come on.
- But--
- Come on, let's go.
- You weren't shy before.
- Please, come on.
Were you with her?
- Who?
- "Who."
She told you I got her
pregnant didn't she?
That is a God Damn lie.
Okay, go.
Be right here, waiting
to hear the good news.
What's happening?
I have a right to know.
Fucking, yes.
Fucking awesome.
Hi, Ma.
You don't know
what you're doing.
- Trust me.
- You don't know.
You don't know what
that family did to us.
I know, Ma. Believe me, I know.
Daphne, no more games.
- I'm going now.
- Daphne...
He's your--
He's your brother.
Do you hear me?
Daphne, do you hear me?
You're actin'
really fuckin' weird.
I'm just nervous about the baby.
Everything's going to be fine.
I'm goin' for a walk.
Are you coming?
You want me to?
your family did to my mother...
and what you did to Susanna...
You have to pay for that.
What the fuck?
Do it, now.
Give it here.
Why didn't you call the police?
I thought it was
just his drinking.
I thought he'd come home again.
Do you have any reason to
believe that he's in trouble?
You know your mother
called, she's concerned.
She said she just found out
about you and Roger recently.
How do you think
she feels about you
being with her
former employer's son?
I don't know, I'm not her.
Daphne, is there something
you're not telling me?
I'm pregnant.
After his father
raped and beat her
how would you feel if
you were in that position?
I don't know
what you're talking about.
I don't know
anything about that.
Cut the crap.
I'm the one that wrote up
the confidentiality agreement.
You and I both know
what happened.
I know that I love Roger.
I know that I'm carrying
his child.
I know that I need to find him.
A young man disappears
just after his new wife
gets pregnant
making her eligible
to inherit his father's fortune.
That same wife has
strong motive for revenge
because of the father's long
history with violent behaviors.
That doesn't sound
suspicious to you?
About as suspicious
as you fucking his father
and becoming executor
of his will.
You are smarter than I thought.
I hope I can say
the same thing about you.
What are you doing here?
Someone might see us.
I know, I had to see you.
I can't stand this anymore.
I know.
Can we go?
I, I can't be here much longer.
You need to wait.
We don't have the money...
Daphne, you there?
Baby, what's going on?
He's gone, Ma.
What? When?
Two days ago.
Thank you.
Thank you,
that makes me very happy.
Now, you get away
from there and come home.
Come home and get
back to normal.
We'll see.
Susanna Anderson.
You're under arrest
for the murder of Roger Kessler.
I, I don't know what
you guys are talking about.
- Turn around.
- Get your hands off of me.
- Put your hands behind your back.
- What? You guys have no proof,
- I didn't do anything.
- We have all the proof we need.
Now get the fuck off.
- Hold still, hold still.
- No, I didn't...
Settle down.
Fuck, shit.
- Got it?
- Yup. Got her.
Are you Mrs. Daphne Kessler,
the wife of Roger Kessler?
- Yes.
- I'm detective Green, this is detective Gray.
May we come in?
She was afraid
she might be pregnant
and she thought her husband
had cheated on her with an ex.
Did she seem
worried to you?
Um... Well,
she said the ex-girlfriend was really angry...
Susanna could be real intense.
Sometimes if you just looked at her wrong she'd freak out.
Do you have any reason to suspect that Daphne Kessler was involved?
- In the murder?
- Absolutely not.
Don't you think it's odd
that she got pregnant
so quickly after
they got married?
Well, what's odd about
two young people having sex?
Did you
threaten the Kesslers?
No, I would never hurt her,
I love her.
Well, she denies it completely.
We all know that your suspect
has been causing problems
for my clients and for
the whole town for that matter
for quite some time.
This time she just went too far.
You worked for the older
Mr. Kessler, right?
I took care of Roger
when he was a child
and I helped raise him
after his mother passed.
There have been accusations
that she was seeking revenge
for something that
happened to you.
I'm sorry, I don't know
what you're referring to.
When did you learn about
their relationship?
He didn't tell me
about her until...
till our wedding night...
and she was watching us.
You didn't call the police?
Roger said that
she was harmless.
You ever see that before?
It was found with the body.
Was there ever a time
when he behaved
inappropriately toward you?
He was always very loving.
He loved me.
Thank you.
Your daughter says that
on the night her husband
was killed that, uh,
she was staying
in Portland with you.
Yes, that's correct.
I drove to Portland
to see our lawyer.
Did anyone see her
when she was with you?
We met in my office,
my assistant was gone
for the day so...
I stayed over with my mom.
She came and made dinner
and we watched the news
and went to bed.
Like normal.
Is there anything else
you want to tell us about
Daphne's relationship
with Roger?
It's going to take a long time
for her to recover from this.
Thank you.
I think we have what we need.
We appreciate your help.
Well, it seems pretty
clear to me.
You're joking, right?
What percentage of murders
are committed
by the victims spouse?
Susanna was
his girlfriend before,
pregnant with his kid,
it's pretty much
the same thing nowadays.
What does she get out of it?
Besides why would
Daphne want to kill him?
She gets everything she wants.
You're giving up to easily.
Just because she's black
doesn't mean she's guilty.
Fuck you, man.
I did not say that.
But you got to go to where
the evidence takes you.
I did it, Mama.
For you.
For us.
So I can see you
In my dreams
So I can be with you
In my dreams
I see you with me
I'll walk away
To the edge of the dream
I see the sun
Rising up from the sea
A new day, a new day
The world is afire we feed
Command me
Relieve me
Believe in the power
You've honed
So I can see you
In my dreams
So I can be with you
In my dreams
I see you with me
Stay with me
I want you
I want you here with me
Don't you see
I need you, I need you
So I can see you
In my dreams
So I can be with you
In my dreams
I see you with me
