We the Animals (2018) Movie Script

Look at us.
When we were brothers...
we wanted more.
More volume.
More muscles.
Us three.
Us kings.
Us brothers.
- Us family.
- Body heat.
Body heat, body heat.
Body heat,
body heat.
Body heat, body heat.
Body heat, body heat.
Manny. Joel!
we wanted less.
Less work.
Less noise.
Just this.
Come on.
What are you waiting for?
Wait up!
Toss it up!
I call first
to be on the bed.
Shake it, Papito! Come on!
Come on. All right, now.
Shake it
like you're rich.
Snobby, snobby,
rich, rich.
Get those noses up.
Shake it! Shake it!
You ain't rich.
Shake it like you're white.
Like your ma.
No rhythm.
Nah, you ain't white.
Now shake it like
you're Puerto Rican.
Come on!
I met your ma in high school.
I asked her to dance.
And that's how he got me.
I was only 14.
Yeah, you didn't look 14.
I sat in his lap
just like this.
And I remember asking,
"Can I get pregnant from this?"
And he said, "What, this?"
And there wasn't no way we could
stay in Brooklyn after that.
Then out popped Manny.
- Boo!
- And then Joel.
And then you.
What time do we got?
Look at me.
Watching them.
You went so far.
Was that scary?
I'll never let anything
happen to you.
You grew up with
all these lakes and rivers.
You got two brothers that swim
like a couple of goldfish.
How come you don't swim?
You don't know
how to swim neither.
Yeah, well, no one
ever swam in Brooklyn.
Then where did Paps
learn how to swim?
I don't know.
You ready?
You're coming with me.
Come on.
I got you, bud.
- Come on. You too.
- You crazy?
No, no. You're coming.
Come on.
- I'm okay. I'm good, I'm good.
- Come with me.
Come on. It'll be fine.
- I got you. Come on.
- Okay.
Hold on to me.
Come on.
Hold on tight.
Hold on tight.
All right.
Time to learn.
Does that feel good?
Hold on. You good?
You're safe.
Hold me tight.
We've gone too far.
Take us back.
He's got to learn to swim.
You both got to
learn to swim.
How else you gonna learn?
I need to talk to your ma. Take
your brothers out for a sec.
- And do what?
- Get out of the car, coo!
You okay, bro?
You fuckin' baby, him!
Goddamn it.
He will learn to swim
like normal people
learn to swim!
Did he learn to swim?
Did he learn to swim?
Why do you have to do this?
Wake up!
Where's he going?
Do me a favor.
I need you to be good
and quiet around your ma.
There was a, uh...
an emergency.
Yeah, I had to take her
to the dentist tonight.
Manny, come here.
- Hold on to this for me.
- Is she hurt?
She just needed some, uh...
her wisdom teeth taken out.
The dentist was, uh...
punching on her a little.
That's how they loosen up the
teeth before they rip them out.
But the dentist said
she'll be better by tomorrow.
It's my birthday tomorrow.
happy birthday, old man.
It's his birthday.
Happy birthday.
He's ten.
He'll leave me now.
What's that supposed to mean?
When you boys turned ten,
you left me.
That's what big boys do.
I won't.
Will you get up today?
How do I look?
- Purple.
- Crazy.
Tore up.
What did he do to me?
He punched you in the face.
To loosen up your teeth.
You think that's funny
when men beat on your mother?
Promise me
you'll stay nine forever?
You're not ten.
You're nine plus one.
Next year you'll be
nine plus two.
Like that. Forever.
when they ask you
how old you are,
you'll be telling them that
no matter how old you are,
you are your ma's
baby boy.
And if you stay my baby boy,
then I'll always have you.
You feel that?
I remember
your heart inside me.
Ticking like a bomb.
That hurt!
Now that Paps was gone...
she stopped eating.
Stopped cooking.
Stopped getting out of bed.
Not knowing what's to come,
why, that's...
that's pretty scary.
But I have heard the future.
All of you hear the future
in a dream.
It's God's whispering.
Put your hands on your ears
and block out the noise
and feel
the magic of God
inside you.
We are the magic of God.
Us three.
Us three.
His name, Papito.
Your mother smell like pizza.
Give it to your teacher
for luck, for luck,
for luck, for luck,
for luck.
One, two, three, four,
five, six,
seven, eight, nine.
Soy sauce.
If you stay still and cool,
you won't be hungry.
God, I'm starving.
Don't answer the phone.
But what if it's Paps?
- Ring, ring.
- Hello?
Mami, how come you didn't answer
the phone when I call you?
'Cause you sound so ugly.
Here try it.
- Yo, yo, what's up?
- Woman!
This is your husband
talking to you right now.
- You better act right.
- What do you want from me?
Dgame, Mami, talk to me.
I've been missing you.
Been missing you real bad.
I know, Mami, I know.
Ring ring.
I'm sorry.
Nah, baby, I'm sorry.
What are we going to do?
Come on.

Come on. Let's go.
Tuck in your shirt.
Come on, tuck it in.
Divide and conquer.
- Can I get a pack of Newports?
- Really?
What? It's not for me.
It's for my mom.
You kidding me?
You want me to go home
empty-handed to my mom?
You know what she's gonna do to me if
I don't come home with her Newports?
- I'm not gonna sell you anything without an ID.
- Please.
- I'm just gonna walk away and put it in my back pocket.
- It's not gonna happen.
- Fine, let me have Marlboros then.
- Fuck!
Come on! Come on!
Jonah, look.
Shh. Quiet.
Yo, take off your shirt
and use it as a basket.
Grab as much as you can.
Cut it out!

All right, come on.
Oh, shit.

will ever come back?
He always comes back.
Shh. Close your eyes.

- You touch my bag?
- No.
You're so fucking weird.
After she got up...

a heart attack?
What heart?

enough seatbelts
to protect your family.

Is that what you want?
To be a fat old lady?
But tonight

So tonight
we'll go for a ride.
Yo, move over.

We're gonna need to get some
new boys to take your place.
Yeah, that's exactly what
I need in this house:
more men.
Where'd the boys go?
I don't know.
I guess they disappeared.
Okay, stop.
Come on.
The boys are watching.
Oh, I thought
you all disappeared.
You were supposed
to look for us.
I guess I found
something better.
Could you get my boots
out of the closet?
Oh, baby.

We'll show him.
- Shh. Are you guys ready?
- Yeah.
I can't find the boots.
- We got you!

O Father, O Lord.
We are lost in the desert.
Please take us to our freedom
and take away all evil.
Dear Lord.

- This is bullshit!
Ow! Fuck!
Who knows them?
Wait up.
Come on.
Come on.
It's like Coke.
My mom loves it.
Where is she?
She's in Philly.
When I get enough money,
I might head back home.
You'd like Philly.
There are Mexican people
like you there.
I'm not Mexican.
More than me.
Jonah, I fucking see you.
Wait up.
Paps is waiting for us.
Come on.
Yo, what the fuck

All right, we're here.
Come on, come on, come on.
Move your stuff over there.

I like sleeping in a bed.
I know.
I know. Me too.
Me too.
Come on.
Why is that light
in a cage?
So it don't fly away.
It's a funny thing.
The other day when I was cutting your
hair, you know what I was thinking?
I got me a pretty one.
How'd that happen?
Get up, get up. Come on!
We're late! We're late!

truck, Get under the covers,
and wait there until I come
and get you, okay? Come on!
Hurry, hurry, hurry!
These yours?
That's what
my wife keeps telling me.
At least you're, uh,
only half as ugly
as your daddy is.
Listen, man. Why don't
you and I go have a talk, huh?
Manny, take your brothers and
go to the truck. Go, go, go, go.
I had nowhere to take 'em.
My wife works at night.
I had no choice.
I'm supposed to say
I didn't see three little kids
just come out the building
at 5:00 in the morning?
What the fuck?
What the fuck?
I need this job.
You've had it in for me
from day one.
Don't give me that stuff.
I only have it in for you because
you don't do your fucking job.
It's not our fault.
It's always our fault.
This is the one time
I brought my kids, man.

Maybe he's digging a pool.
Or a tunnel.
Nah, I think
he's digging a trench.
Ain't no trench.
Digging a grave.
Whose grave?
How am
I supposed to know?
Probably Ma's.
Or maybe yours.
Where is he?
He dug a trench.
Joel thinks it's a grave.
He dug a grave.

It's like she did that.
Did what?
Made it rain.
That hole, it's magic.
Paps dug a grave.
It was my grave.

Yo, I told you
he was fucked up.
Bro, you're disgusting.
You're right,

Paps got the truck fixed.
He brought it back.

You don't push me!
Get your things.

- Yeah.
We can go home if you want to,
but we don't have to.
We can leave him.
We can do that.
But I need you to tell me
what to do.
Jesus! You think this is easy?
Say something.
I thought we were finally
going somewhere.
Look at them.
Growing up.

- No, I didn't.
- Yes, you did

and you said,
"I like her."
No, I didn't.

[boys chanting More,
more, more, more, more,
more, more,
more, more, more,
more, more, more,
more, more!
I used to be
my mother's baby
When I was near,
my dad went wild
we had company
They'd bounce me
on their knee
The neighbors thought
I was a darling child
Once I was
everybody's baby
But right now
I'm lonesome as can be
You see,
I'm nobody's baby
I wonder why
Each night and day
I pray
The Lord up above
Please send me down
Somebody to love
But nobody wants me
I'm blue somehow
Won't someone
hear my plea
And take a chance on me
I'm nobody's baby now
