Losing Alice (2020) s01e07 Episode Script

The Scene

I told you you're not allowed to touch me.
Yeah, you did.
And so
Is there ever a time
when you stop playing games?
It's not a game.
Then what is it?
It's how I am.
You can suck on my thumb if you want to.
I'm going into the other room
to wait for you, okay?
No games.
Okay, break for lunch.
Everyone back here at 2:30.
The take was great.
Do you really think so?
Yeah, yeah. It was perfect.
It's really great.
You guys are amazing.
You handle it.
They miss us.
I know.
It'll be over soon.
You want to go eat?
I don't think so.
I'm gonna need a flat stomach
in the scene coming up.
Don't worry, it'll be good.
Yes, I read it. Of course I read it.
I did. Believe it or not, I read it.
Why don't you go out and have
a decent meal with everyone else?
I need quiet.
I'm paying a fortune for catering.
If it was sent, I certainly didn't see it.
That's what it's about.
Hey, Lifshitz.
I'm busy right now.
Sorry, I'm waiting for Alice.
No, why? Actually, it was interesting.
Hey, Alice.
The scene went well yesterday, didn't it?
With my daughter?
The scene? Dana and Rita?
Oh, yeah, yeah.
I wasn't sure.
I just wanted to check with you.
This role means a lot to me.
It came out great.
Okay, thank God.
Sorry to bother you.
Well, I really did read it.
Okay. I gotta jump off now.
Okay, fine then.
What's going on?
Something odd.
You know the homeless old lady
who lives under the office?
I think I just saw her.
Yeah, I thought I saw her walking around.
I don't believe Pnina
would come all the way here.
It's bizarre,
but she's been saying things
to shut us down.
Yep, she has some kind
of sick obsession with Sophie.
But I don't think
she'd come all this way to
I don't know. Something's off.
I'll speak with hotel security
and ask them to keep an eye out.
Better safe than sorry.
You never know.
Oh, hey.
Got a minute?
Everything okay?
Yeah, I
Just having difficulty with this scene.
But you've done a lot of hard scenes
already and you were great.
The last scene was just amazing.
I know. Thanks.
But this is the first real intimacy
between Amir and Eleanor and, well,
it's the first time they actually
Up until now,
they were only playing games.
But now they have to get physical
and very
I'm kind of nervous about it.
You mean yourself or in terms of the part?
In terms of you.
In terms of me?
In terms of you, yeah.
I'm scared.
Of what?
I saw how you reacted
when it was with Tamir, so
No, listen. I'm not arguing.
Just saying that if that's the way it went
when it was with Tamir,
I wonder how you'll react
when it's me and your husband.
It's all fine. I get it.
I mean it.
I just want to be able to give you
the best performance I can.
I want to do everything
my character is supposed to do,
no compromising on anything.
Of course.
That's what you're supposed to do.
Go all the way. That's just what we want.
Don't be afraid of anyone, especially me.
So far your work is amazing.
You gave it your all.
Just keep on doing that.
You're sure?
A million percent.
Your script is beautiful.
Do your thing and fly. High as you can.
Let's do it.
ten minutes till we need you on set.
I'll be there. Thanks.
All right.
I'll take the bra off later.
Sophie, you're beautiful, really.
I guess I feel kind of nervous.
Sure. I almost died when I read it.
Okay, babe, we didn't need this until now
because you didn't get physical yet.
But now you may want this.
It's made of Leukoplast.
For your private parts.
It'll make you feel safer,
with all the friction and stuff.
You can be sure that nothing will show
and nothing will "slip" in.
The strap goes up your behind.
Okay, cool.
There are more serious ones
made of silicon,
but in the end,
this one kind of works best.
And it stays in place.
Trust me.
Okay, we're ready. You know what to do.
We rehearsed it and you know the blocking.
I think I know it's gonna be amazing.
So this is it.
Let's go. Okay.
The floor is strictly off-limits.
Don't let anyone in
and block the elevator.
Did you remind him to wear the glasses?
Everyone stand by.
Roll sound.
Scene 39A, take one.
And three, two, one, action!
I want you so badly.
Ever since you first set foot
in our house, I've wanted you so much.
What's wrong?
I don't know. It's not working.
Camera movement or?
No. Maybe just do another take.
Okay. You want to say anything
to the actors?
No, no. Just move on.
We should get another take.
Anything you want to tell us?
No, the problem was technical, not you.
Okay, we're going for another take.
All right.
Three, two, one, action!
I want you so badly.
Ever since you first set foot
in our house, I've wanted you so much.
No good?
No, it's just just
Just give me a second.
Where's Nitzan?
Can we get some water in here?
So, it's not quite working so far.
I'm not worried. We'll figure it all out.
Can I have a minute?
Look, it's something about
the dynamic between you.
It's like
This is where it comes together now.
You don't even know if she's
joining you after her bath.
You don't know
if you're capable of being intimate.
a little
Right now it feels a little technical.
I'm not making myself clear.
Let's go.
Let's try one more take. Okay.
Let's roll.
Rolling on three.
Stand by, everyone.
Roll sound.
Scene 39A, take three.
Mark it.
Three, two, one, action!
I want you so badly.
Ever since you first set foot
in our house, I've wanted you so much.
Fuck! What? What?
We're still rolling.
What? What does she want from me?
Still rolling. We didn't cut.
I cut. Sorry.
Fuck me.
From when she enters?
No, from when she sits down.
Put the towel back on.
Alice, we're short on time.
You got this?
Let's go for another take.
From when she sits, right?
Did she call it?
Three, two, one, action!
I want you so badly.
Ever since you first set foot
in our house, I've wanted you so much.
What the fuck does she want now?
What the fuck does she want now?
I want another take.
Sorry, guys.
let's get a new lamp in here quickly.
She wants another take.
I need to use the restroom.
Alice, we're running into
double overtime here.
Kobe, I don't have it.
I'm just pointing out we might be
So what do you want?
Should we skip the scene?
'Cause I don't have it. Not even close.
You should just know that
we're over almost three hours now.
Okay, I don't care
about what I should know.
I need you to shut your mouth,
do your job,
go in that room and tell them "go again."
Got it?
That's fine
but any idea how much longer?
No problem.
Then we're gonna wrap right now.
Because we're three hours over.
And then this crew
that's been killing themselves for you
will sit up here all night long
to rearrange their schedule
so we're all available an extra day.
You'll have to shoot this tomorrow,
all right?
It was intense, right?
Did I kill you?
It's part of the job.
And I'm sorry if you thought
it had anything to do with you.
And how could it not?
It wasn't you, it was all me.
I wanted something
that just wasn't happening
and I guess I didn't explain it properly.
Did Sophie take it hard too?
Yeah. Wouldn't you?
She mentioned you'd have
a hard time with this scene.
We actually thought of suggesting
that you shouldn't be on the set.
What are you talking about?
That you wait in another suite
and only watch the playbacks.
That's where I was.
After the fact.
Forget it.
Sophie said that's what
Kate Winslet's husband did
when he directed the big sex scenes
with DiCaprio.
Why didn't you say something?
'Cause I believed that you were capable
of handling it.
Well, that's the way it goes, right?
It's on me to get the best performance.
Maybe it would have helped if you knew
what you wanted out of us.
You don't say.
I do say.
I kept my mouth shut the whole day.
And I ran that scene
a thousand times for you.
But you had no idea what you wanted.
I didn't do it for fun. It wasn't working.
I wasn't working.
Say it. Come on.
What wasn't working?
A bunch of things weren't.
But yeah, I didn't like
that you wouldn't fully commit.
How could I go all the way?
You wouldn't let me move.
If something was there I might have, but
I didn't feel that anything was happening.
What wasn't there? What? What? What?
Explain it to me. What?
What was missing there?
Focus. There was no focus,
no concentration, not going all the way.
That's absurd. It's a bunch of bullshit.
You can't be serious.
Don't tell me you don't know
what I mean, David.
You have that thing that you do
that everybody loves and adores
and it works for you
and you don't need to try hard.
But in a film like this,
in a scene like that,
you can't fake it.
Fuck you then.
I suggest you get a grip on yourself.
No disrespect, I have done
a few movies before this one.
So it's me then.
Don't give me that, okay?
I've worked for a million
more experienced directors.
Not one ever had the balls to tell me
the bullshit you're telling me.
Too bad.
No wonder it's been years
since you've made a film.
I mean, look at you.
You're more insecure every day.
You're coming apart.
I haven't made anything in years
because while you were
traveling around the world
playing parts you could do in your sleep,
I was stuck with your mother,
two daughters, pregnant, bedridden.
Oh, yeah. I was wondering when you'd try
to use the pregnancy as an excuse.
You fucking prick.
What? Do you regret having Dori?
You've got some nerve saying that.
So you needed to rest. So what?
I wasn't allowed out of bed
for six months.
I was with your mother
because you went away
and left us all alone.
Okay, so let's say it was a mistake
to take those jobs.
Should I have stayed home then?
Okay. Maybe.
So what? What's the big deal?
Tell me.
What do you want?
I mean it. What do you want?
Aren't you doing what you want to do?
Is it everyone else's fault
that you're stuck?
I'm not stuck.
What is this? What?
Go away! Oh, my God!
Keep away!
Don't touch me! Get away.
Get away!
Stay away from me. What is this?
Don't touch me.
Keren, come over here. Keren.
Go away. Go, go.
No. No, stay away from me.
Get back. Stay away from me. No.
No, go away. No. No.
I can't
I wanted to take a swim.
What does it mean?
What does it mean?
Maybe it's just
What does it mean?
It doesn't mean anything, honey.
It's just a bad situation.
Maybe the nest got clogged up or
And I'm pregnant.
That's wonderful.
But why is this happening to me?
What does it mean?
It must mean something.
Must be a bad omen.
It's not an omen. Don't be silly.
These may not be the happiest
circumstances, but congratulations.
Thanks, Tammy.
Drink it, honey.
Oh, my God.
Sweetheart. Oh, my brave girl.
How awful.
I feel terrible.
It's okay, it's okay.
I'm afraid something's wrong.
Don't worry, we'll go to the clinic now.
I'm sure nothing is wrong.
Look at me. Look at me.
We're gonna be all right, okay?
I won't let anything bad happen.
Don't worry, I love you.
It's okay.
It's all right. Let's go to the clinic
and have you examined, okay?
And after that we can
Do you want to sleep here?
What? No.
Tamir, whatever you need.
Of course.
Thanks for the robe, Alice.
No problem.
Of course.
Here, honey.
Soft and warm, straight out of the dryer.
Why don't you get some sleep, Mom?
You know, this situation is so unhealthy.
It's all right, my love.
It's all right, my sweet son.
I'm here and everything will be fine.
Davidi, it'll be all right.
I was thinking about
what happened last night.
I think we should separate
until the production's finished.
Yeah, you might be right.
There's just a few days left
and we should have done it sooner,
but at least for the rest of the time
You're absolutely right.
The separation will do us good.
I don't know what you want,
but I have to be home.
I can't
The hotel works.
All right.
For now.
If I could be any animal, I'd be
Grandma, you want a tomato?
A giraffe. What would you be?
Pass the bananas.
Yaara, you want some?
I'd be a skunk.
No, you smell lovely.
What do you want?
Did anyone try my French toast?
What an awesome meal.
It's so good.
Hi, Mom.
So, I'm going to work again today.
Alice, darling, are you sure
you don't want to sit down with us?
No, Tammy. My ride's coming soon.
And I just wanted to tell you
that I'll be staying for a few days
because I have a lot of work to do.
But we'll talk on the cell phone
whenever you want
and we'll send photos too. Okay?
It's almost over. And soon things
will get back to normal again.
What do you want? More what?
More, please. Milk.
Is Daddy shooting again?
Okay, Dori.
Yeah, but he's coming later to shoot
and he'll be back home in the morning.
Dori, what are you doing now?
Nothing, Grandma.
It's not just for you, it's for everybody.
Give me that.
I love you very, very much.
Who taught you that?
You drink too much coffee, David.
Bye, Mommy.
Bye, baby.
Have you had enough to eat?
Grandma, what does "popular" mean?
"Popular" means What does it mean?
"Popular" means a lot of people like it.
For example, did you know
that cheese and cucumber
is the most popular sandwich in Israel?
Bye, Mommy.
Alice, honey.
You sure you don't want something
for the road?
Enjoy it.
We have a surprise now.
Dessert for breakfast.
What is it?
It's a secret.
Good morning.
Okay, we're going back
to yesterday's scene.
I know it will be excellent.
Questions, anyone?
You want anything
different from yesterday?
No. Just the same, okay?
Let's go for it.
Let's smoke up the room a little.
Do you mind standing
on the other side of the light?
Let's prep for scene 39A.
Quiet on the set! Quiet!
Scene 39A, take 15.
And three, two, one, action!
I want you so badly.
Ever since you first set foot
in our house, I've wanted you so much.
There's no need.
Just wait.
No, don't. Don't.
Don't. Don't do that. Don't, no. No.
Stop it.
