The Model (2016) Movie Script

Excuse me?
Sorry, uh, I'm
looking for Marcel.
You're late.
- Very late.
- Sorry.
That's all right, come.
And leave that
hideous thing here.
I don't want to see it.
Come on. Come.
Oh these are nice, this is nice.
This is... I like that.
These are good,
these are very good.
What we're gonna do is,
we're gonna take
some of these out,
and put these back in instead.
- Okay.
- Yeah? All right.
So now just go get changed
and we'll take
some measurements
and a few pictures
and we'll be done.
- Okay. Sure.
- Yeah?
So you ready for tomorrow?
- Yeah?
- Mm-hmm.
He's a very important
photographer, so...
if he likes you, this
could mean the world.
- So you'd better be good, huh?
- Yeah.
- You are late.
- Yeah, I know.
I need to leave, so
I'll just show you fast.
This is it.
There's another girl
living here, Zofia.
She's in Milan, I think,
I don't know when she's back.
She's very nice, you won't
have any problems with her.
- Okay.
- This is your bed.
- I have keys for you.
- Thank you.
You pay rent on the first
and the 15, all right?
It means "welcome."
- Morning.
- Good, good. Great.
If you could join him on
the sofa, please, darling.
Mm-hmm, yeah.
Okay, guys, today we're going
to be doing five outfits.
Very sexy, very edgy.
I really want us to push the
fuckin' envelope on this one.
We're gonna try some
stuff on the sofa.
We'll have a
mess-around on the bed,
we can go outside, we
can see how we feel,
I mean, let's have some
fun, this is all about you.
I want you to be free,
and I wanna see your
soul in this one, okay?
All right.
Here you go.
All right, if you can
move a bit closer, please.
Okay, uh, boy,
let's move you over.
You stay where you are, darling.
Okay, that's good, sit back.
Okay, just relax for the moment.
Okay, if you can turn sideways,
one leg up on the sofa, please.
- Like... Like this?
- Yes, please.
If you could lift
your knee... knee up higher.
Yeah, let's bring
this leg down, please.
Let's bring this
leg on the floor.
No, the other leg. Thank you.
Okay, one hand on your knee.
Let's try you kissing
on the back of his neck.
Can you just kiss the back
of his neck for real, please?
You need to relax, darling.
Emma, I need a word.
What's wrong?
I don't know.
You've got five minutes to
get your shit together, okay?
Right, that's enough.
That's it.
We're finished.
Emma, you're done for
the day, let's go.
You're finished for the
day, you can leave now.
Did you not hear me? Let's go.
- Go and put some clothes on.
- I'm on it.
There you go.
You won't touch my stuff.
But your stuff
was all over my bed.
No, it wasn't.
I just don't like people
going through my things.
- I'm Zofia.
- Emma.
Are you gonna stay long?
Um, for a couple of months,
to start with, and...
then, you know, just
see what happens.
What agency?
- Uh, BTA.
- Cool.
Did they tell you
to lose weight?
No, actually they
said that I was perfect,
that I sh-shouldn't...
change anything.
I just got back.
I don't know, maybe...
maybe it was too early
for you to come here.
Maybe this, maybe
this is not for you.
Did you ever think of that?
- No.
- No?
All I'm saying is,
if you wanna go back
home, it's fine.
Maybe in a year or two, you
can come back and try again.
Are you sending me home?
I'm not sending
you home, honey, but...
You fucked up.
You really fucked up.
No, he was terrible.
You did?
"Just" a blow job?
Ah. Oh.
Okay, talk to you later.
We're gonna go out to party
a bit. You wanna come?
Thanks, but I don't
think today's so good.
Why not?
You know, the best way to
get things going in this city
is to go out and meet people.
Staying indoors won't
get you anywhere.
What are you looking at?
This is Emma,
my roommate.
Cheers, everyone.
- You're a friend of Zofia's?
- Yeah.
Yeah, we live together.
I just came to Paris.
- How do you like it so far?
- It's good.
I'm in real estate,
I own quite a few
homes here in Paris.
- Hey.
- Hey.
It's... Emma, right?
How are you?
I'm good.
You should use the men's.
There's no one in there.
Oh, no, that's... it's okay.
Are you okay?
Do you know him?
Shane White?
Just a little.
I love his work.
Okay, one second.
- What's up?
- What the fuck are you doing?
- Yesterday, I just...
- No.
Your phone, why
is it turned off?
The agency has been
trying to reach you.
They even called me.
I don't know what you did.
Do you remember the photographer
you worked with
on the first day?
Well, he wants to book you
for this editorial
job for L'Officiel.
- What?
- The magazine L'Officiel.
You've heard of L'Officiel, no?
- Of course.
- It's huge!
So, I don't know what you did,
but you did it right.
Well done.
I will need your
name and signature.
- Hi.
- Hi.
I didn't think
I'd see you again.
No, me neither.
Wow, it's really nice, huh?
- I know, right?
- Yeah.
This is Emma.
- Hello.
- Hi.
Hi. Nice to meet you.
We can get her ready
just afterwards?
- Okay? Thanks.
- Yes.
Do you want something
to drink? Coffee?
- Uh, yeah, sure.
- Okay.
Okay, guys?
Listen up, ladies.
Attention, please.
So, today we're gonna be
shooting a very classy piece.
Very vintage, very old-school.
Classic, yeah?
I need you to be real bitches
on this one.
Real, nasty Parisian bitches.
Completely out of reach
from these male models.
- Okay?
- Okay, yeah.
All right, do we understand?
- Yeah, yes.
- All right.
- And Emma, okay?
- What?
You with me?
Fuck you.
This is it.
See, this is what
I'm talking about.
This is the attitude.
Good, okay. All right, I'll
see you out there, girls.
Okay, we're ready.
Give me that intensity.
Oh yes.
You're looking beautiful.
Really great.
Emma, give me
everything you've got.
Okay, beautiful, beautiful.
One more!
Ah, yeah.
Okay, bitch it up.
Just like that, yeah.
Okay, beautiful, beautiful.
It's just not normal to see
models eatin' like that.
Well, I can eat anything.
People must really hate you.
Tell me about yourself.
What do you want to know?
Where are you from?
Are you a country or city girl,
what music do you like,
what's your favorite color?
What's your dream,
what would you take
to a deserted island?
What's your middle name?
Do you have a
boyfriend back home?
Don't do that.
You hide your
mouth when you smile.
You're beautiful.
You shouldn't do that.
You really need to learn how
to take a compliment, too.
See, if I tell you
you're beautiful...
what should you do?
You just straighten
yourself up...
and say, "thank you."
Well, thank you.
So, country or city girl?
Small city.
And, my favorite color...
is red.
- Really?
- Yes.
What's your biggest dream?
Oh, that's easy.
Walking in as leader
in Paris Fashion Week.
For who?
Could happen.
So, what's your dream?
Nah, don't know about dreams.
You have the craziest
eyes, you know that?
I want to see you again.
- Hi?
- Hi.
Hey, sorry I'm late.
It's okay.
Guys, this is Emma.
- Hi.
- Hi.
She's a new face in town.
Hi, Emma. Good to meet you.
- Nice to meet you.
- You too.
Nice to meet you, Emma.
- You want a drink?
- Yeah, sure.
- Hello.
- Hi. Hi.
Last cover of Vogue, amazing.
Stylish, beautiful, wonderful.
Sorry, I, I just don't
see what that fuss is about.
What, what's your problem?
Oh, come on,
she looks amazing.
I'm fed up with those teeth,
you know?
- Oh, you mean the gap.
- Yeah, the gap.
It's been done,
don't you think so?
- No.
- No?
No, it's great.
It's different,
it's wonderful.
I hear that dentists,
they are starting
to make them now.
- Can you imagine?
- You mean, like, fake gaps?
Yeah. They're
making fake gaps
- at the dentist.
- Yeah, that's weird.
We're living in
Bizarro World.
Yeah, okay, come on.
Can you just please
shut up for one second?
Just think about,
you're a girl,
in the middle of nowhere,
you don't know anything
about the life,
and then, you know,
you feel, like,
uncomfortable because
you have ugly teeth,
and then suddenly
you see Laura Stone
on the cover of Vogue magazine.
And then, what, she think,
"Ah, maybe something can change,
maybe something can happen."
Then she say to herself,
"I need to throw up my lunch."
"I'm never eating
again, I promise."
- Oh, shut up!
- Shut up.
No, she think, "Okay,
I have ugly teeth,
but I can do something
of my life, and change."
There you go. That's
very sweet of you to think.
It's true!
You really believe that
Laura Stone and Vogue
making girls feel more
secure about themselves?
Yeah, I do.
- Right?
- Yeah.
- No kidding?
- No, I'm not kidding.
Come on,
virtuous Vogue,
absolutely. Yeah.
Yeah, I agree.
Yeah, I mean, I grew
up in a small town too,
and back home everybody
used to make fun of me
because, you know, I had
these weird long legs and arms
and small tits and wasn't
like the other girls.
You know, they, they
would call me, um,
like a, like a spider,
but like with wings?
- You know?
- A crane fly?
Yeah. And, you know,
when I told them
that I wanted to become
a model and go to Paris,
they all thought that,
you know, I was just a joke,
that, um, they still
think that it's a joke.
They don't believe
that I can do it.
And they don't understand,
like, my parents.
I mean, they don't believe
that I can do it, either.
And, I don't know, they just,
they don't understand why people
would take pictures of me,
because to them I just
look weird or something.
Yeah, I mean...
Well, if I didn't have this,
I'd probably believe them too.
You see?
It's incredible,
but it's true.
Shane, darling, where
did you find that girl?
She's just amazing.
Yes, listen to her.
I think she found me.
- Bye-bye.
- Bye, darling. Bye.
One more drink?
No, I'm okay.
Crane fly?
Take off your dress.
- Bonjour.
- Bonjour.
Oh, for me?
- Hi, sweetie.
- Hey.
I tried to call you.
You have a guest.
I'm not saying anything.
But are you done now?
I need to get
something in the room.
These are so good.
And you look fucking hot.
She is hot.
Very hot.
- He's cute.
- What?
He's cute.
- What?
- Nothing.
So, how did you and Emma meet?
Uh, in school, actually.
And that's two years
ago now, I think.
But then she decided
to come to Paris.
Yeah. Bad luck for me.
But I understand why
she wants to try this out,
it's... it's a great
opportunity for her.
She'll be back at some point.
How about you,
where are you from?
I'm from Poland.
I grew up there.
I haven't been home in
the last five years.
You don't miss home at all?
No, not really.
And I don't really have
the best relationship
with my family, so...
Hey, I'm in Paris, right?
And you get new friends
when you travel.
Like Emma.
Yeah. Go conquer
the world, right?
That's right, Frederik.
I would do anything to
get a shot like that.
So, what do you think?
Should we go out tonight?
I don't know.
There is something
going on in your pub.
We could go and get some drinks.
I'm really tired,
so, it's, I don't...
Shut up.
We should go out,
show Frederik around,
- have some fun.
- Yeah.
I would like that.
But we go there all the time,
shouldn't we go somewhere
else tonight then?
Darling, that's where
it's happening tonight.
Thank you.
I'll pay.
- Sure.
- Are you sure?
Yeah, I'm sure.
There you go.
Thought you were staying home.
I changed my mind.
Okay, cool.
- Oh, sorry, you met Zofia?
- Hey, darling.
- Hi.
- Mwah. How are you?
I'm good, how are you?
Same old, same old.
- And, uh, this is Frederik.
- Hi.
He's a friend, from back home.
I'm Shane.
Nice to meet you, dude.
nice to meet you, too.
You guys gonna come
and sit down?
We have a table.
No, it's okay, we're
just gonna stay here.
- Come on... Come sit down.
- It's okay.
All the guys are here.
Come on.
I'm glad you came.
- Everything's okay? Yeah?
- Yeah.
- With your friend?
- It's okay.
Okay, well.
Here's to a great night.
- Good morning.
- Hey.
I've got interesting news.
Harper's Bazaar called
me this morning,
and they want me to do
an editorial next week.
Guess who I picked?
Are you not happy?
This is a big fucking deal.
- No, I am.
- Great.
What are you doing this weekend?
I don't know.
My crazy mate is having
this big party, gathering,
that he does every year
in his big fucking castle,
and we're all flying
out there and...
hoped we could go together.
- Sounds good.
- Yeah?
I mean, you can ask
your friend Zofia and her pal
if they'd like to come
as well, and...
Settled then.
Oh, this is Olivia.
My daughter.
This is Emma.
Say hello.
- Hello.
- Hey.
Can you say hello nicely?
Eat properly, Olivia.
No, of course not.
Speak English, we have a guest.
That's enough.
Stop, Olivia.
Can I come in?
What you did was not very nice.
Did Frederik sleep here?
But he left early.
I think he might have
gone to the airport.
He left a note in the room.
Maybe it said something.
Did it say anything?
Nice to meet you.
- Gerard.
- Emma.
Okay, now that everybody
found his or her seats,
um, we have this...
this little tradition
that needs to be carried
out before eating.
I know that this may
be a little surprising
for some of you who
haven't been here before,
um, so...
in order to create
the right atmosphere,
you need to kiss your dinner
partner before eating.
Now, this is a tradition
to loosen up, to be more open
towards meeting new people,
and this should, of
course, be a real kiss.
So, um, are you all ready?
Well, you may begin.
So we should kiss.
Hello, you.
I'm tired.
When are we gonna go?
I think I'm gonna
stay a little longer.
But I won't be too long, okay?
- Okay.
- Okay.
Don't worry about it.
It's been almost a year
since they were together.
Shane and that girl you
kept looking at all evening.
You're his girlfriend
now, right?
- Yeah.
- I wouldn't worry then.
I would be seeing you
if I was him.
You are beautiful,
you know that?
- I'm Sebastian.
- Emma.
And you're great in photos.
You... you've seen
pictures of me?
Of course. I would love for
you to walk for us sometime.
Oh, what do you do?
You're sweet.
Should I know?
Let's just say I, uh,
I'm an executive at
a big French brand.
Which brand?
No way.
And I think you could
be our face someday.
- Oh, stop.
- I mean it.
I meet you girls all the time.
Girls come into Paris
when they are very young,
and I tell you this:
You have it.
I saw that right away
when I saw your book.
Hey, I have something
we should try.
- For you.
- I don't know...
It's not too strong.
You wanna go have a swim?
What, now?
Come on,
let's check the pool out.
You know where it is?
Go get changed, I'll meet
you there in ten minutes.
I don't think
that's a very good idea.
Oh, sure it is.
I don't
know if we should...
be doing this.
I'm sorry.
I fucked up, I know.
I got stayin' in the
garden house, and...
I'm sorry.
I was comin' back, but...
I saw the guys, and they
invited me to go and play pool,
and they had this
bottle of whiskey.
I fell asleep on the sofa.
I'm sorry.
It's not true.
Yes, it is.
No, it's not.
You were talking with your
ex-girlfriend all night.
That Linda.
I came down to look for you
and you just left with her.
No, I didn't.
She left and went to sleep,
I went with the guys. Um...
I'm sorry I didn't
tell you about her,
but I don't have anything
to do with her anymore.
I don't believe you.
It's the truth.
I know this weekend
wasn't everything
it was supposed to be.
Baby, I fucked up.
I'll make it up
to you, I promise.
It doesn't matter anymore.
Don't say that.
Come outside,
I need to talk to you.
- What?
- You know what this is about.
Come outside now.
Put your fucking spoon down.
I said stand up.
Okay, hold it.
Guys, guys, guys, guys.
Guys, guys.
What the fuck's
going on here?
All right, easy, easy, easy.
You okay, man?
Everything's cool.
This is Shane White.
Leave a message.
This is Shane White.
Leave a message.
Hi. Please...
please call me.
- I just don't get it.
- I know, baby.
Listen, Harper's Bazaar is big,
but something else will come up.
How can they just cancel,
Don't we have, like,
the contracts or...
No, baby, they can
do whatever they want.
- I need to talk to them.
- No, you don't talk to anyone.
And you especially
don't talk to him.
- But I have to...
- No, Emma!
- I have to tell him...
- This is going to make you,
this is going to
make us look bad.
Look, honey,
you're very talented, okay,
and you have a lot of good
things going on for right now,
but this business is
also about, you know,
how tough you can be.
'Cause there's gonna
be so many temptations, and...
and people trying
to take advantage of you.
I'm not trying to demonize
the fashion industry,
'cause it's my life, but...
I'm just saying...
what's the point of being on
the cover of Harper's Bazaar
if you're not happy?
That's just a
fucking clich, Marcel.
Yeah, perhaps.
Hey, I'm sorry.
Come here.
It'll be okay, we'll
find you something else.
Don't worry.
- Um, excuse me?
- Yes?
The Harper's Bazaar shoot?
- It's up there.
- Okay, thanks.
Hey, Mi.
What are you doing here?
- Didn't you get the message?
- Yeah.
It's just...
You... You can't be here.
I just need to speak to him.
No, Emma, come on.
Please, don't make it worse.
- Just really quick...
- No, Emma, go home.
We're working here.
Shane? Shane!
What the fuck you doing here?
Why won't you call me?
Why do you think?
Let's talk next door, come on.
Please, give me
another chance.
Don't do this Emma, please.
You know I'm sorry.
It's not gonna work.
You need to leave. Now.
Are you fucking her now?
That's it. Come on, let's go.
Are you fucking her?!
- Let's go.
- Bitch!
Shane. Shane.
- Just...
- You're making things worse.
It's over.
Go home.
It's almost two o'clock.
- Okay, merci.
- Au revoir.
Excuse me, uh, where's the...
personal hygiene area?
- There.
- Thank you.
- Hey.
- Hey.
What's wrong?
- I'm pregnant.
- What?
I took a test,
and it was positive.
You sure it's mine?
Yeah, of course it is.
I know somewhere we
can get this sorted.
We'll get a proper examination
and we'll get it fixed.
I don't know if I
want to get it fixed.
Excuse me?
You need to stop
this talk right now.
You can't have a baby,
you're 18 years old.
And we're not even together,
what are you gonna do,
raise it by yourself?
I'm 16.
Excuse me?
You told me you were 18.
Oh, man.
This is a hundred percent,
we need to get this fixed.
We are not having this
baby, there's no way.
No one can find out about this,
no one can hear my name.
Come here.
I'm sorry this got so fucked up.
I'll get it fixed.
Can I come up with you?
I really don't think
that's a good idea.
I don't feel good.
Okay, let's take the
same again, but faster.
Go, go, go, go go go, go.
All right, yeah.
Faster, and this time...
Yes, lovely.
Three, two, one.
Okay. Bellissima!
Can you keep a secret?
Of course.
I'm back together with Shane.
I told him I was pregnant.
I'm... I'm not pregnant.
I thought I was, but I'm not,
I just... I told him anyway.
To... To get him back.
I missed him so much.
Can't you just call
and say you can't make it?
It's just an hour.
I'll be quick.
You're not pregnant.
- Yes, I am.
- Don't fucking lie to me.
What's wrong with you?
You're sick, you know that?
You're not well.
How could you lie about
something like that?
- It's not a lie.
- Shut up.
Why'd you tell me
you were pregnant?
You fuckin' disgust me,
you know that?
I want you to leave now.
Out now.
- Can't...
- Out!
Let's go!
Look, here's a piece of advice:
Go back to Denmark
and sort your fuckin' head out.
Hi, this is Zofia,
leave a message.
Call me. I need
to talk to you now.
- You're late.
- Yeah, sorry.
Get ready.
Emma, hi.
Let's go.
Please look into the camera.
Into the camera.
Okay, good.
Emma, please, okay?
I'm gonna need you to focus.
All right? For five minutes.
Les, can you... can you please
do something?
Can you see the last one?
You're Emma, right?
And, uh, Shane White,
the photographer,
he's your boyfriend?
And, uh, Zofia Baga,
the model,
she's your friend?
We live together, so...
I just wanted to let you
know something I heard.
Everybody's talking about this.
They are seeing each other.
I know Mika, Shane's
assistant, and she also told me.
I'm sorry, I just decided
you should know that.
Thank you, sweetie.
Five minutes,
five minutes.
What are you doing?
where are you going?
What are you doing?
Are you fucking Shane?
Are you fucking him?
What are you doing, stop it.
You are fucking Shane!
Stop, stop!
- Hey, stop.
- She is fucking him!
Sit down.
All right, all right,
take it easy, huh?
Calm down, calm down, all right.
You stay here.
Take it, please.
One more.
So, what's happened?
- Hi, Olivia.
- Hi.
I'm walking
you home today.
Come on, let's sit. Come.
No, stay.
Is Shane seeing my friend Zofia?
Has she been to your apartment?
Is he fucking her? Tell me!
I... I don't know.
- This is shit.
- No, it's not.
Why do you look
at me in the shower?
Think I'm pretty?
Can I sit?
Good night.
No. No.
No, don't, I don't want to.
- No. No. No.
- Please.
No, no.
No, no, no.
Ow, stop, stop, stop!
I'm sorry.
I'm really sorry.
You have to help me.
I stabbed someone with a knife.
No, but you have to help me.
I stabbed him with a knife.
Hi, Marcel?
Hi, you. How are you?
I'm okay.
Yeah, did you
get back all right?
Yeah, I'm home now, so.
Well I'm glad
everything is all right there.
You got back, and you're safe.
I heard that
he got out of the hospital
and he's been officially
charged now, so...
Well, that's good, right?
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
Listen, I... I just wanted
to tell you something,
we got this call
today at the office.
Now, I know it
doesn't matter now,
with everything
that's happened, but...
Chanel wants you to walk
their haute couture show
here at the Fashion Week.
But they asked for
you, specifically,
they... they love you.
Well, I just wanted
to let you know.
I said that you probably
wouldn't be able to do it,
that you went back, and,
well, they were
very disappointed.
I thought you'd like to know.
Maybe it could, you know,
cheer you up.
I was right to tell them
you couldn't do it, right?
I mean, there's no chance
that you could come down here
and... and do the show?
Uh, Emma?
Emma, are you there?
