True Things (2021) Movie Script

So, there's no reason why we
can't be hitting targets in this area.
First thing that we need to be doing is
asking some more probing questions.
Working out what kind of support we
need to put in place for these customers.
And what sort of
reasonable adjustments
the employees
need to be making as well.
Second thing we can be doing
is spend a little bit
less time on our phones.
I've noticed that people
have been hiding their phones
on their lap, on their desk,
in their bags.
I just need a proof of address.
So if you could bring in
a bank statement or a gas...
But I ain't got it.
What do I do? Pull it out of
my fucking pocket?
Well, we can't do anything
until you bring that in.
What the fuck is your problem?
I'm just saying that
we need it in writing.
But I'm here.
Is there something wrong
with your fucking eyesight?
We still need it in writing.
Fucking ugly bitch.
I just said your name
three times, Kate.
It's like you're on another
bloody planet.
David would like to see you
before lunch.
You'll get an email.
And you were late
once again this morning.
It was only a few minutes.
And where were you Tuesday?
I was off sick.
You didn't bring
a doctor's note.
Dog ate it.
Just joking.
Yeah. I'll bring one in
next time.
Sorry, it just totally
slipped my mind.
Do you recall what
we discussed last month, Kate?
So this is your final warning
before I take the next step.
And whatever happens
is beyond my control.
Do you understand?
Mr Kendrick?
Now, is this
your permanent address?
Difficult to say.
Well, you can give us
a care-of address,
but then you will need
to bring in written consent.
Just say permanent, then.
So you've just been released
from prison.
Can I just check that your release date
is the 20th of April, 2019?
- Is that correct?
- Yep.
Had a small run-in with
an articulated lorry
and a lamppost.
Can you confirm
your marital status?
Married or single?
Oh, sorry.
Computer's going... Ow.
Uh, computer's gone.
Um... Right.
Okay, so it usually takes
about three to five weeks
for a claim to be processed.
And if you, you know,
don't hear from us
within that time,
you can just contact us
via phone or email.
Do you have any other questions?
What are you doing for lunch?
Well... Uh...
Well, I usually just eat
a sandwich in the kitchen.
They don't give us very long.
Sounds worse than bloody prison.
You wanna go out.
Sit on a bench.
Well, I'll keep that in mind,
thank you.
All right.
Well, I'm relying on you,
to make it happen.
So, I've set you up
on that blind date.
His name's Rob.
Nice one. Thanks.
Yeah, he is, actually.
He's really nice.
Good looking, too.
He really wants to settle down.
What's up? Come on.
Shit, I've just remembered
I've promised Gavin
I'd sign off on a file
by the end of the night.
I'll have to nip back.
It's Friday bloody night.
I know.
Just get me a drink
and I won't be long, all right?
Okay, weirdo.
Fancy meeting you here.
Fancy meeting you.
How was your day?
Good, thanks. Yours?
Not too bad.
What are you up to?
Nothing, really.
You've got hair
in your eyes, darling.
Where do you usually drink?
God, I can't walk in this skirt!
The car's a bit of a mess.
It's pretty shameful.
I'll tidy up
the passenger's seat.
Make you wanna jump?
Do it then!
It's a phenomenon, actually.
The urge to hurl yourself
off high places.
- Is it, now?
- Yeah.
It's not about
wanting to kill yourself.
It's life-confirming.
'Cause you could do it.
But you don't.
You're lovely, aren't ya?
Take your tights off.
And your knickers.
It's cold, it's cold.
Stand on my feet.
- You all right, darling?
- Ow.
Keep going.
Keep going. Keep going.
Keep going. Keep going.
You didn't recognize me,
did you?
It's been a while.
No. I was here
last week, Nan.
Don't you remember?
I must be losing
me marbles after all.
I'm teasing you.
- I brought you these.
- They're lovely!
You look lovely.
- I had a date.
- Oh.
With a very handsome man.
Oh, I like a handsome one.
I know you do.
And he's funny, too.
Sounds like you're smitten.
Might be. A little bit.
Should have brought him here.
We've only just met, Nan.
And when is the big day?
Don't be silly.
Lovely girl like you,
he's bound to propose.
Felicidades. Wedding.
I should be going, Nan.
She's a very busy girl.
Got a lot on.
Yeah, I'll see you soon, okay?
You seeing him tonight?
Yeah. Yeah, that's right.
Going somewhere nice?
Um... I'm gonna cook him
a meal.
Good on you.
What are you wearing?
Oh, Jesus.
You'll have to be quick, Kate.
I'm putting the kids to bed.
I'm calling to make
a formal apology.
Yeah, where were you?
You could've called me.
I know, I know. I know.
I'm sorry, but it was, um...
It was a bit mad, actually.
Yeah, well, that's the story
of your life, innit?
I said put that down right now.
Don't talk to me
to me like that.
Pesky kids.
Right. Well, that's fine,
then. That's fine.
If you can give it back
to me now...
So what are you saying?
Are you sorry?
Yeah, yeah.
Good boy. Good boy.
That's it.
You mustn't be rude to mummy.
She's too tired... okay?
Come on. Please.
Gavin, it's like a,
it's like a knife
going through my head.
And I've got these big,
like, flashing lights
at the side of my eyes.
It's just,
it's firing like this.
Gavin, I've just been sick
in the toilet.
Just go.
We'll see you tomorrow.
- Bring a doctor's note.
- Yeah.
So where we going?
We're eloping.
It's a secret.
Even from you.
Look over there.
It's a bird of prey.
- There!
- Where?
I can't see it.
It's a buzzard.
Shit, he's circling us.
You eat like a squirrel.
Well, it's totally
unmanageable with one hand.
How come you're always
like this?
Like what?
Beguiling, aren't you?
I don't know.
I think your smoke's blowing
into that woman's food.
- Is it blowing in your food?
- No.
Why do you wear those shoes?
Horrible, aren't they?
Well, it's a dress code,
so I kinda have to.
We'll get the bill.
And I'll show you
my favourite spot.
Excuse me.
Can we get the bill?
Thanks, darling'.
No, you're all right.
I'll get this.
Are you sure?
- All right, darling?
- Yes, thank you.
Just a bramble.
Well brought up, aren't you?
I suppose.
What'd you call your parents?
Mummy and daddy?
They're called Trevor and Susan.
What do you call yours?
Bitch and cunt.
She gave me away when I was four
and I've never met him. So...
So who did you
grow up with, then?
Coming in for a swim, then?
Uh... I'm not very good.
Take your clothes off, then.
Shy, aren't you?
You show me yours
and I'll show you mine.
This too, please.
- Beautiful tits.
- Thank you.
Very well brought up, indeed.
I don't know anything about you.
I don't know anything about you.
My hobbies are reading
and listening to music.
I like drawing.
- Really?
- Yeah.
Do you have a girlfriend?
No, I don't have a girlfriend.
Do you do
this sort of thing often?
Are you interrogating me,
Ms. Perkin?
Have you ever killed anybody?
I was only in four months.
You're funny.
Am I?
You know you are.
Right. I'm going in the water.
The lovely Kate Perkin.
I wish we could stay
like this forever.
Can I have one, too, please?
What are you trying to do?
Climb inside me?
Nothing. Sorry.
I just remembered
my car's still at work.
Doesn't matter.
I'll get the bus.
Do you wanna come in
for a coffee or something?
I've got things to do.
Yeah, yeah.
I have, too, so...
I'll call you.
Feeling better, are you?
Yeah. Yeah. Thanks.
Yeah, just bloody migraines.
Got a doctor's note.
God, I hate these shoes.
Do you hate these shoes?
You know you can get sacked
for having a relationship
with a claimant, don't you?
I mean, I haven't got
a problem with it
even though I got you
the job. I just...
I thought you should know.
So is it just a fling, or...
I don't know.
It's early days.
Does he want kids?
Uh, we've only been
on two dates.
Don't want him to give you
the run around though, do you?
You know what you're like.
Well, he seems pretty keen
on me, actually.
I just know you want to
settle down. That's all, babe.
I want a lot of things.
Like what?
Don't know.
I'd like to travel.
Where to?
Loads of places.
- Yeah? Like where?
- I don't know.
I'd just like to
take a trip somewhere.
Get in a car and drive off.
Have an adventure.
Well, it's up to you, isn't it?
I just... You need to get your
priorities right, that's all.
I take it you're still on for
babysitting Saturday night?
Yeah, yeah, course.
See you out there.
And how's work?
Yeah, busy.
Run off my feet.
I bet you are.
Did I tell you
your cousin Janet's
just had her third baby?
Be nice if you could
drop her a card.
Yeah, sure.
Another boy.
She'll be exhausted.
So, have you been going out?
Having fun?
What've you been up to?
I'm seeing someone, actually.
Well, that's great news, Katie.
Well, spill the beans.
Tell us more.
What's he like?
Where did you meet?
Well, we just, kind of,
bumped into each other
at work, and then, you know,
that was that.
Wham, bam, wham.
So you've got
a lot in common, then?
Yeah, I mean, he's, you know,
he's had a tough time lately,
but he's doing okay now.
He's getting back on his feet.
Oh, dear.
How do you mean?
Well, he hasn't got any legs.
You're joking.
Yes, Mum, I'm joking.
You've got a very dark
sense of humour sometimes.
- Come on, Susan.
- He's fine. I'm fine.
Don't worry about it.
I do worry about it, though.
That's the thing.
I should get going. A lot on.
Don't let me forget to
give you some vegetables
before you go, love.
No, I'm all right for veg.
Thanks, Dad.
Got some fantastic tomatoes.
Looks like
it's gonna rain again.
Hey, um, can I get a gin
and tonic, please?
- Yeah, sure.
- Thank you.
Actually, can you
make that a double?
- Sure.
- Thanks.
Thank you. Here.
- Hi, Kate.
- Rob.
What, like we're supposed
to shake hands or...
God, no. I dunno.
So in order to move up,
I had to move on.
The thing is, if I was
gonna take on extra work,
it'd have to be for,
like ten-K more.
Otherwise, it just wasn't
worth my while.
So when I was head-hunted
and when the price was right,
I just thought, "Yeah.
Leave Sheffield. Why not?"
So, here I am.
And how do you like it?
So far, so good, yeah.
Yeah, It's quite picturesque,
isn't it?
Surprisingly so.
Well, maybe I can take you
on a tour sometime.
I'd like that.
Show you the beauty spots.
Yeah, I'd really like that.
I like your shoes, by the way.
Well, thanks, yeah.
You know, I have been told
that shoes are very important.
That's right.
So, uh,
what about you?
I've been doing all the talking.
How's your work?
Do you enjoy it?
Well, if you get me
another gin and tonic,
I will tell you all about it.
Okay, deal.
Not for me, though.
I'm driving.
Oh. I got a taxi,
you know, just in case.
Or I can give you a lift home,
if you'd like.
Thanks, yeah.
Maybe I can give you that tour.
Oh, not tonight, no.
Got a 6:00am start in the morning.
Right. Uh, another G and T?
Yeah, make it a double.
Is it much further?
And pull up here.
This is it. This is it.
This is it.
If you look across there,
you can see the whole harbour.
It's the best view in town.
Where's your house?
I thought you were
directing me to your house.
I am.
This is just a detour.
Whoa, whoa. Whoa. Hold up.
What are you doing?
We're... We're not having sex
in my car.
This is a work car.
We don't have to have sex.
I think, I think
you might be drunk.
A little bit. I might.
I think, I think you should
just get dressed.
Yeah, you're really attractive.
Look, just put your dress
back on, okay?
You have the most amazing body.
Do you work out?
- Just put your dress back on.
- No.
- And give me your postcode.
- No.
Look, are you...
Are you crazy?
Would you want me
to leave you here?
Right now.
Do you want me to do that?
Put your dress back on now!
Fucking' nutcase.
Put your dress back on.
Been calling' you.
You look nice.
I like your dress.
Get your skates on, then.
My car's fucked.
Can we use yours?
I used to have
an imaginary friend.
A horse. Called Dunlop.
Like the trainers?
That's funny.
If you could go
anywhere, where would you go?
Where'd you go?
Somewhere different.
I'm gonna get a beer.
Thank you.
Excuse me, have you seen a man
with blond hair?
Excuse me, have you seen a man
with blond hair?
With a hat?
What's your name, darling?
Katie. Kate.
I'm looking for someone, Blond.
Have you seen him?
Here. Have some of this.
It's all right.
It's for horses.
Is she okay?
- Hey.
- Hmm.
- Are you all right?
- Hmm.
- You sure?
- Hmm.
Want some water?
Oh, shit.
Oh, God.
Oh, my God.
All right, darling?
I was looking for you.
I was looking for you.
You disappeared.
I was fucking worried.
You wandered off.
Funny, I didn't.
I just thought you, you'd left.
You're stiff.
Relax, darling.
We're the same, you and me.
What do you mean?
We're soul mates.
You're high.
You don't know
what you're talking about.
I always know
what I'm talking about.
That's it.
There you go.
That's better.
What's wrong, my darling?
No one likes me.
What are you talking about?
My friends.
That's their
fucking problem, then.
How can it be?
They're not your tribe.
You need to find your tribe.
You're my tribe.
What, just me?
Small tribe.
Tiny tribe.
My sister's getting married
in a few months.
That's nice.
She lives in Spain.
I can take someone.
You should come.
I'm starving.
What do you eat?
You're like Old Mother Hubbard.
Got behind on my food shopping.
That's all right.
I'll pick something up
on my way.
Oh, where you going?
What kind of meeting?
Possible business venture.
Early days.
Can I come?
Are you joking?
Yeah. I still feel
a bit high.
Can I borrow your car?
Did I tell you mine was fucked?
Um, yeah.
Yeah, you did.
It's something with the exhaust.
I'll need to take it
to a garage.
But one that's not
gonna rip me off.
Is this all you eat?
You really are
a little squirrel.
Better get going.
Better get on.
Look, I can go and buy you
some bacon and eggs.
It will only take a minute.
Pushy, aren't you?
All right.
Go on then if you're going.
Get me some coffee.
Nice coffee.
- Nice coffee. Okay.
- And...
Orange juice.
With or without bits?
- You decide.
- Okay.
And ketchup.
Coming right up.
There it is. There it is.
Yeah, why not?
Juice. Juice.
And now, just get some...
I'll just...
I don't know.
"Had to run. See you."
"Had to run. See you."
"Had to run. See you."
All right.
Oh, fuck.
Oh, shit.
Oh, shit.
"Had to run. See you."
Okay. Okay.
Oh, fuck!
Oh, shit.
And I put the key
in the ignition and just...
You know, nothing.
It didn't even turn over.
You know, it must be
something wrong
with the exhaust, you know.
I've got to take it to a garage.
One that doesn't try
and rip you.
I don't know what to say, Kate.
Sorry isn't gonna help
this time.
I'm sorry, excuse me.
I just need a...
I think I've got a bug.
He's been fucking you
about, hasn't he?
Taking your car
is basically theft.
I said he could take it.
He is using you, mate.
No, it's not like that.
It's pretty obvious, Kate.
No, look, he hasn't had
a very good childhood.
So you're gonna rescue him,
are you?
We have a connection.
Okay. You need to text him
and tell him
that if he doesn't bring
your car back by tonight
then you're calling the police.
Yeah, sometimes
I think you enjoy all this.
I beg your pardon,
enjoy a what exactly?
Do you actually think
that I don't have
anything better to do
than listen to you moan
about your latest shag?
You seem smug.
You seem like a bit of a slag.
Yeah, well, I try not to think
of myself like that.
Okay, well, then maybe
you should
stop fucking random strangers
and find yourself
a proper boyfriend.
I think you should
go home, Kate.
Oh, fuck.
Hi. Hi.
I've been trying to call you.
Um, I need my car.
Tonight, uh, yeah.
At about 7:30?
8:30, yeah, that's fine.
Yeah. Yeah, you?
This pub is fucking horrible.
Well, it's just my local.
It's the first place
I thought of.
So, how you doing?
- I'm exhausted.
- Oh.
How'd that interview go?
With that, um, you know,
potential business venture?
Did they give you the job,
Mr Kendrick?
Do I look like someone
who can work for other people?
This beer tastes off.
Oh, no.
Brought your keys.
I thought you might have called.
I've been busy.
You just disappeared.
What? When?
When I went to the supermarket.
I left you a note.
Yeah, I know.
But I thought
you might have just,
you know, called just to say,
I don't know, just to say...
It's a two-way street, Kate.
You could have called me.
I did.
Oh, yeah.
I mean, you've had my car
for over a week.
You lent it to me.
Look, I'm just wondering
what's going on with us?
you wanna do this now?
The thing is, I like you.
I like you a lot.
And I would...
In fact, I think
you're pretty great.
And I would like to carry on,
you know, carry on seeing you.
What are you talking about?
Well, I just...
You know, I'd like to be
your girlfriend.
How old are you? 12?
What do you want then?
I don't want anything.
You said I was your soul mate.
When did I say that?
After the party.
When I was pissed
and high on pills?
Yeah, I said... I said
you were high. I said that.
I was trying to calm you, Kate.
Placate you. You were a mess.
You invited me
to your sister's wedding.
What does that mean?
It's a friend. An old mate...
He's in town for a night.
I have to go.
What, right now?
He's like the closest
thing I have to a brother.
Okay? What's wrong?
I think, I think
I've got a migraine.
I've got to meet my mate, okay?
Your car's parked
on the other side of the road.
Wait, wait. How are we,
how are we leaving it then?
You're too fucking
much, you know that?
No, I don't, I don't understand.
- What?
- I don't understand.
Why are you trying to corner me?
I'm not. I'm not.
Your breath
really smells, darling.
Oh, hello, love.
We rang the bell,
but there was no answer.
So we had to let ourselves in.
I was sleeping.
Those keys
are for emergencies, Mum.
It's past midday.
Yeah, I was having a lie-in.
I've been very busy
at work, Mum.
What you doing?
So why aren't you at work today?
Because it's the weekend.
It's Tuesday.
We bumped
into your friend, Alison.
We know about your job, love.
Why didn't you tell us?
Your mother worries.
That's the thing.
You don't have anything
in your cupboard, Katie.
I thought you were gonna
buy yourself a new cooker.
Like I said,
I've been very busy.
I think men find you
difficult, that's why.
- What?
- Susan.
No, it's important
she knows these things.
She's all on her own.
- Sit down.
- I don't wanna sit down.
Look, your mother has brought
some chicken
and chocolate cake,
your favourite.
And I've brought you some veg
from the garden.
Lovely fresh peas...
I don't want
any more fucking veg.
What are you doing here?
Why are you in my flat?
Just get out! Get out!
Get out! Get out!
Get out!
Don't know
what's wrong with you.
Like some sort of
bloody depressive.
Come on, Susan.
We can come back later.
I'll not be coming back later
to be spoken to like that.
How dare she?
Fuck you! Move!
What the fuck are you doing?
Oh, fuck.
Watch out, mate.
That was a...
That was a hole in one.
- Yeah.
- No, that's not a hole in one.
That was a hole in one.
Is this, is this snooker,
or is it pool, mate?
This is pool, you know.
- It's pool?
- Yeah, pool.
All right, what's the difference
between snooker and pool?
Me and Kate, we'll play doubles.
- You're with me.
- Yeah?
- Come with me.
- Okay.
I'm just gonna go for a wee.
Feel how smooth that is,
that's lovely.
- That nice?
- Yeah.
There's a lot
of space there, isn't it?
Oh, these are all
the different colours, look.
So nice.
I like that blue.
Cake with
this beautiful stand mixer.
So today I'm going to be
showing you...
how to create a perfect
cream cheese frosting
for your cake.
So I'm going to add in,
first of all,
the softened butter.
And then I'm adding in
the cream cheese.
Now, if anybody has tried
to do this by hand,
you'll know it is actually
really difficult
to remove all of the lumps.
So we're taking out
all of that stress
by using this stand mixer.
So this is the attachment
that we're going to use
and it really gently
slots in there like that.
Turn it on, you'll be able
to hear the slow start motor.
So it's really nice and quiet,
so you don't have all that noise
in the kitchen while you're
doing your baking.
And you can hear how quiet...
that motor really is.
It's the perfect...
So you can add
a dash of vanilla,
if you fancy
a bit of extra flavour,
or you can leave it as it is.
So we are gonna be adding
a bit of sugar
to this now to sweeten the mix.
And it goes perfectly...
Um, just arrived and I'm just
outside the main exit.
I'm by the taxis.
Can't see you anywhere.
Fuck's sake!
Fucking hell.
All right, darling?
Got held up. Sorry.
Come on.
I've got a taxi waiting.
Main bedroom.
Guest bedroom.
Open plan.
They've done it nice,
haven't they?
You smell lovely.
We've been invited
to the party tonight.
Pre-wedding thing.
Let's have a little lie down,
shall we?
You all right?
- Yeah.
- What's wrong?
Just... you know,
a bit tired, like...
It's a nice bathroom.
You want a beer, huh?
Um, maybe, in a minute.
I was thinking...
I just figure
we should get married.
Have kids.
I've been thinking
about it, yeah.
I'm up for it.
The whole thing.
Thank you.
What does that mean?
Why are you behaving like this?
I'm not behaving like anything.
It's so hot out here.
You're not wearing
those shoes, are you?
- Drinks?
- What are your parents like?
Ah, she gave me away...
- Do you have a lighter?
- I'm sorry.
Lost you for a minute.
You having an all right time?
Yeah, it's great.
You complete me.
Come on then! Come on!
Whatever. Jump in.
Let me get in!
How's it looking like, mate.
In a minute.
- Yeah!
- Come on!
No, thank you.
