X/Y (2014) - full transcript

A look at the lives and interactions of a group of friends living in New York.

[Heavy breathing]

[Kissing sounds]

[Heavy breathing]


Okay, I'm done.

I'm done.
I'm not done.

Finish. Finish.


You're not into it.



Do you want talk about
what happened tonight?


You have nothing
you want to say?

No. I wanna check my emails
and I want to go to bed.

I gotta meet Todd
really early in the morning.

What was that, tonight?


You yelling across
the restaurant?

I heard you say,

"Dicks, pussy,
licking, asshole,"

all in one sentence.

And so did everybody else.

Babe, there was nobody else

sitting near us in the

What is it that you
are trying to prove?

I don't have anything to prove.
It was a joke.

Well, I'm sorry, but I don't
like it when you act like that.

It is embarrassing to me.

You didn't have to
make it really awkward,

'cause everyone felt awkward.

Okay, you know what,
I'm gonna go to sleep.

Maybe we can talk about this
sometime tomorrow,

but, you know what, I...

I have to sleep.

Are you unhappy?

Are we seriously
gonna keep doing this?

I wanna know.

Babe, I'm happy.

I don't feel like
you're happy.

I'm happy.

Do I make you unhappy?

Do you really wanna know?


Yeah, sometimes
you make me unhappy.

I knew it.


Do you wanna sleep on the couch,
or should I?

You're not sleeping
on the couch.

Then you go.

I'm not sleeping
on the couch either.


What are you doing?

You're not gonna fucking sleep
on the couch!

Then you go.

Well, I'm not sleeping
in bed with you.

I don't want to be near you.

Well, what do you want me to do?

You want me to leave?
Is that what you want me to do?

You want me
to fucking leave?

If that's what you want.

Fine. I'll go.

What are you doing?

I'm looking at Facebook.

You want some tea?

Sure. Yeah,
that'd be great.



I don't know how to say this.

I slept with Jason.

You what?

I slept with Jason.


When you were out of town.

Why, Sylvia?

I feel alone.

All the time.

What am I supposed
to do about it?

I don't know,
talk to me about it?

I try to talk to you. I try to
talk to you all the time.

You don't want to talk to me!

I tried. You don't even
want to listen to me.

[Kettle whistling]

[Car horn honking]

[Phone vibrating]

That gonna work for you?

Yeah, this is good.
Thank you.

I'm gonna head out in a bit and
get awake. You wanna join?

No, I'm fine. I gotta meet Todd
really early in the morning.

Well, dude, take the bed
while I'm gone. Seriously.

I'm gonna be gone
for a minute.

Don't worry, it's clean.

All right, well, there's plenty
of food and drink in the fridge.

Help yourself.

Thanks, Jake.
I really appreciate it.

No problem.

I'll see you in a bit.

[Alarm blaring]

Morning, dude.

Hey. Good morning.

[Shower running]

I love the new script.

It's a beautiful world
you've set up.

I mean, it needs some work,
but it's getting there.

I have some questions.

Okay, cool.

Now, you have one character

that's going to be played
by three different actors.



Um... well, I mean,
it's about--

it's about growth.

It's about how he
evolves as a person.

It's about how he sees himself
as a different person,

in each different
stage of his life.

Okay. I don't think
it makes sense,

but you seem to think it's a
good idea, so I'm confused.

Yeah, I really think
it can work.

And the, um, cross-cutting
of the stories,

don't you think it would
be a lot easier

if it were told linearly?

A lot easier to follow,
you know, told in order?

Well, yeah, I think it would be
a lot easier to follow, yeah.

Um, but, I don't think
it would be very interesting.

I have a secret for you.
I showed it to Warner Brothers.

You showed it to
Warner Brothers?

I just wanted to
give them a taste.

It's not ready.
Why would you do that?

You said you weren't
going to do that.

I know, I know, but the
point is, they're excited.

They're really, really excited.

They love the idea.

They're looking for a high
concept sci-fi

for a summer release.
They think this could be huge.

They think this could
be the one.

Really? They really like it?

Yeah, but they
have some concerns.

Okay, what kind of concerns
are you talking about?

Big concerns?
Small concerns?

Well, they're concerned about
three actors playing one role

and the fucking cross-cutting
of the stories bullshit.

They also need you to end
with a big chase sequence.

Wow. Okay, that's
some real shit.

Look, if you want to do a movie

for an audience of five hipsters
in Williamsburg,

you go right ahead.

I'm not in the business of
making crap, okay?

You have a great idea.
We can make something epic here.

[Phone honking]

Do not fuck it up

with this "I went to film school
so I have to make art" bullshit.

Fuck, I have five more
meetings today,

and then I gotta catch
a 10:00 flight.

Tiffany's ovulating

and I gotta get the juice in her
before her eggs dry up.

She's got it down to a science,
it's like a five-hour window.

It's fucking...
it's fucking a chore.

Listen, I'm back in a week.

You think you can get
those changes by then?

Yeah, I think I can do that.

Stretch your fingertips towards
your big and second toe.

Push the right hip more forward.

Tuck in the chin.

With your eyes only, look up
towards your right thumbnail.

Grow a little bit.
You got a little bit more.

Stretch up. Reach up.

There it is. This is how
you become stronger.

Lift up, stretch up,
and hold it here. Hold it here.

Charge your body forward.

We all have windows
of opportunity.

No hesitation. Only awareness.

Stretch your finger
just more forward.

Kick your foot back, as you kick
the toes all the way up.

Bellies engaged tight.
Start to bring your body down.

Your chest down,
all from the lower spine.


My little pony's coming!

[Dog barking]

Shut up, dogs!




Oh, there she is.
Come give me a kiss.

Nothing makes me sick, baby.

I can't deal with this right
now. Just put her on the couch.

Okay, let's do this.

Come on.

Dude, you wanna get some water
and a trashcan or something?

Guy's name is [Unclear]. He's
gonna take good care of you.

All right. All right.
Let's go, come on.

Grab my neck. Grab my neck.
Come on.

Oh-- Ahh!


Oh, my god.


You're drunk.

No, you're a mess.

I just wanna make you happy.

Okay-- no.
I'm not in the mood.


Stop. Seriously.

You're a mess.

I don't like being with you
when you're like this.


Ahh... I actually
don't need you. You can go.

You're a fucking drunk. Just get
your shit together, Stacy.

Let's get you up.

It's okay.



No, I had, like,
two interviews last week,

and one of them
went really well.

He really liked my portfolio.

He was just like,
"You have a lot of cool style."

And... I don't know...

Yeah, I'm doing,
like, a lot of yoga,

been working on my,
like, meditation,

and I'm feeling really good,
and I'm feeling positive,

like it's totally gonna happen.

I'm fine!

I have a budget. Really.

All right, well, how's Dad?

Can I talk with him?

Okay, no, I get it.


What can I get you?


What do you suggest?

Uh, well, the Flores
is very good,

but my favourite is
the Kogomini from Kenya.



Sounds fancy.

It's got a really nice
floral undertones.

Uh, it's sweet with,
uh, hints of syrup,

and it goes down smooth
and finishes strong

with a trace of chocolate.

Wow. That sounds delicious.

I'll have two, please.

Okay, good choice.
It'll be $18.


Shit. They better be good.


There's your change.


Can I get you
anything else?

Do you have any brown sugar?

Yeah, it's right over there.

Oh, yeah.

Next to the white sugar.

That's right.

Uh, anything else?

Uh, yeah... This...

is for you.

Do you want me to throw it out?

No. Um, inside--

there's something inside if
you're interested.

No, no, not right now.
Not now!

Oh! Jen.


Okay, bye!



You left this.

Oh! Thank you!

You're welcome.

I'm sorry. I'm such an ass.

I saw you and I was like,
"Eh, why not? What the fuck?"

You know? Um, but I don't do
this on a regular,

or, like, at all.

That's okay.

So you can tear it up,
you can throw it away,

you can clean up coffee
with it, um, whatever.


Okay. I think I'm gonna go now.

Um, should I give you, like,
a reward or something?

No, I mean, like, I hardly found
it, so don't worry about it.

Okay, well, thank you.

All right.

Oh, my gosh,
I'm so sorry.

I'm late.
I got caught up at work.

On a Sunday?

Yeah, we're slammed.
Got a lot to do.

Thank you!

Mani mani!

Jen, you don't have a job.
Why are you getting manis?

It was nothing.
It was cheap.

Did you pick this colour?

She suggested it.

Ugh, you don't like it.

No, it looks great.

I like it.
It makes me smile.


Ready now?

Yeah, we're coming.

No waiting.

Now or no "scrubbu".

No scrubbu.

Let's go.

I had a vodka soda
and he had two more pilsners.

And then I had a cosmo,
and he had two more pilsners.

Are you listening to me?

Can you look at me?

Jen, I can hear you.


He sounds like a winner.

I really felt a connection.

What happened to... Don?

Doug? Don?

Doug? Oh, yeah, Doug.

What happened?

I stopped calling him.

He just wanted to do me,
like, all the time.

Oh, who says "do me"?

He wanted to do me.

To do me, like all-- like,
literally all the time.

And I was like, it's not
even that good, so.

I cut that cord.

Really? 'Cause I thought
you said you liked him.

Okay, well, maybe
he stopped calling me.

[Both laughing]

Oh, my god...

I'm so fat!

You're so ridiculous!

Johnny, he's just so cute.

He's just-- He's like tall, and
he's like not the kind of guy

that I would normally be into,

but you know,
maybe a change is good.

Maybe I need a change.
Maybe I need to just, like,

do something that's, like,
out of the ordinary.

Maybe then it will work,
you know?

Oh, my god,
I forgot to tell you,

I met, like, the cutest, cutest
guy at the coffee shop.

Like, you guys--
like, you talked to him?

Well, sort of.

What do you mean?

Well, I ordered coffee.

And then?

And then I asked for some sugar,

and then I, like,
slipped him my number

on a piece of paper,
the napkin.

On a napkin,
like you're in junior high?

Yeah! No, well, he thought
it was really cute,

'cause he gave me
his number too.

And there were all
these people on the train,

at 5:00 in the morning,
and I was like,

"Where is everybody going?"

To work.

To work?


I was like, "I need to be
amongst the working class."

Yeah, you do.

That's where I want to be.

You know? Like everybody was
together on the train,

they were heading somewhere.


You should start
looking for a job.

It's been like three weeks,

Yeah. I need a moment. I just
need to get myself together.

Okay, I guess that's the
responsible thing to do.

Are you okay?

Are you mad at me?
Did I do something wrong?

Jen. No. It has nothing
to do with you.

I've just been having
a really rough week.

Do you want to talk about it?


Mark and I are not speaking.


He moved out.

What happened?


we weren't communicating,

and then last weekend I just
realized that he's a child,

and he doesn't
want to grow up, so...

I mean, I can't
live like that.

Okay, I need a lot
more details than that.

You can't just
drop that one on me.

Well, I confronted him

about being loud at the
restaurant last weekend.

You were there. You saw him.
He was being a complete asshole.

Oh, it was me who
made that thong joke.

I thought it was funny.

It wasn't funny.

I thought it was.

Okay, why would you
even say that, Jen?


You're just
gonna take his side.

You don't even know
the rest of the story yet.

No, I'm not. It was a joke,
and I thought it was funny.

Well, I thought
it was embarrassing.

So that's why he left?

Because of a joke? You guys
couldn't figure that out?


Well, yes, but he
was leaving before that.

I told him about Jason.

Oh, my god.

You didn't.

Yes, I did.

I just said I did.

He must've flipped.

No, he didn't. That's the point,
Jen. He doesn't talk.

He didn't want to
talk about it.

How am I supposed to live
with someone like that?

Mark is a good guy.

And he loves you.

I mean, he has every right
to be upset.

So, what, you think that
this is all just my fault?

He's got no responsibility?

Sylvia, you did fuck up.

It's more complicated
than that, Jen.

Relationships are complicated.

I think I know about

Oh, really? 'Cause when was the
last time you were in one?

I haven't found a guy
that's good enough.

Okay, well, I don't think that's
the problem, but whatever.

Relationships take work.

That's not really something
you understand.

Okay, I wouldn't understand?

I'm not the one who just fucked
up my relationship of six years.

I may not know what it's like to
be in a long-term relationship,

but I do know that it
requires respect.


Oh, you mean like the
kind of respect you get

when you sleep with a guy
on the first date?

Don't talk to me
about respect, Jen.

Please, go.

Are you serious?

I'll take that.

No, it's fine.

I don't want
your money, okay?

Okay. Fine.

I'll talk to you later.

I'll call you,
or something. Bye.

It's Johnny, leave a message.

Hey, do you mind
if I smoke, please?

Cool, thanks.



Can I help you?

Uh, yeah, is Johnny here?

Who are you?

Who are you?

I'm his wife.

Oh... Oh.

Uh, can I help you?

No, I just thought that
I would stop by and say hi.

I was in the neighbourhood.


What are you doing here?


How do you two know each other?

We, uh, we went to college
with each other.

Yeah, we were
in school together.


All right, you know what?

He's not my friend.

Actually, we met on OKCupid,

and we went out
on a date last night,

and I came up here
to get my bag.

I am so sorry.

He did not tell me
that he was married.

Can I just have my bag?


What do you mean, what?
Go get her bag.

I'm so sorry.

Did you sleep with him?

Yeah. I did.

In my bed?

I didn't know it was your bed.

Do you have an STD?

No! No, I am clean.

I'm absolutely clean.

Good, because I have
a mild case of herpes,

and so does Johnny.

I hope you get it.

Excuse me.


I'm sorry. I'm really sorry.

[Phone ringing]


Is this Jen?


It's Phil,
from the coffee shop.

What do you want?

I got your text. Wow.

It sounds like
you've had a rough go.

I'm still interested.



Uh, you wanna
meet up and talk?

Mm, I can't. I'm busy.

I'm cleaning and stuff.

Okay. Um...

Maybe some other night.


How about coffee?

Tomorrow morning?

Sounds great.

Kappa Cafe? How's 10:00?

Okay. I'll, uh--
I'll see you then.


Okay. Bye.


[Indistinct chattering]

What's your name again?


What the fuck?

Wonderful. I'm loving it.

Hold that. Yep, absolute--

Oh, take a look
at her. Great.

Great. Doing well over there.


And... perfect.
There we go.

And, yes, beautiful.
Straight, like that.

That's wonderful. I love it.
I love it. I love it.

[Phone vibrating]


I'm Claudia,
by the way. Sorry.

I know.

You know my name?


And here I just thought...

You're right.

Um, I never do this,

do you want to go get
a cup of coffee?

There's a really cute place
around the corner.

I don't really
have the time.



Yeah, sure.

Cool. Okay, one second.

Let me get my stuff.



I'm just doing this
to get through grad school.

I mean, I never thought
I'd make a career out of it,

but the pay's good
and it's little time commitment.

It's actually pretty ideal.

How about you?

It's a job.

Anything else
you'd rather be doing?

Yeah. Oh, I do a lot
of stuff.

I paint, I deejay.

I really want
to be a photographer.


That's cool.

Yeah, I'm really into
using Polaroids.

Do you have your camera?

How about it?

I'll give you my best shot.

No, that's okay.

Come on.


All right.

All right, you ready?

[Both laughing]

[Camera shutter clicking]

You see?

[Both laughing]

You're in grad school.
What are you studying?


I want to be like
Nicholas Kristof one day.

Oh, sure. He's amazing.

You know who he is?

Yeah, of course.

I don't know, I just--
I really love the news.

It's exciting.
It feels real.

That's because it is.

Oh, shit. Sorry.
I mean... I...

Of course it's real.

You know,
compared to what we do.

So, um...

do you have a girlfriend?



No. My girlfriend and I
broke up a few months ago.

I'm sorry. That's rough.

How long were you two

Five years.

You okay?



Her? Yes.

I'm sorry.

Yeah, we broke up

and she started seeing someone
right away.


Too much information?

No. Not at all.

Sounds like you two
were pretty serious.

Yeah. I was really close
to proposing.

I was engaged once.

I had the dress
and everything.

And then a week before
the wedding, I called it off.


I mean,
he was devastated.

He's fine now.

Married, two kids.

So weird to think
that I might never find somebody

who will love me
as much as he did.

Are you open to it now?

Yeah. Definitely.

So, what was her name?


I don't really want
to get into it.

Oh, sorry. Of course.

I'd better get going.


Thanks for the invite.

It was nice talking
with you.

You too.

[Car horns honking]


[Camera shutter clicking]

[Sighing]Did something stupid last night.


What happened?

I think I fucked some girl
in the club.

You think?


I guess I did.

I feel like shit.

I just fucked her
and then threw her on the floor.

You fucked her
and left her on the floor?


That's fucked up, dude.


I really don't need you
to tell me that.


[Rock music playing]


Did you talk with Silvia?


Well, do you want to?

I don't know how
to get over something like that.

Well, just forgive her.
It's easier that way.


People make mistakes.


She fucked Jason.

It happens.

So what? Now you have
all the answers?

I'm not talking about me.

No, dude. Seriously.

You're still chasing
after a girl

that you couldn't even stand to
be with when you were together.

That's not true.

And you can't even stand to be
alone now.

I'm happy being alone.

Really? That's why you had to go
fuck some random girl in a club?

Dude, who are you? You're like
five different people.

Sounds like you're talking
about yourself, my friend.

Fuck you, man.

Fuck you.

I'm nothing like you.

Fuck you, dude.

[Bass music playing]

[Knocking at door]


Oh, shit, dude.
I'm sorry.

What do you want?

Uh, I just wanted an extra
pillow, if you have one.


Here you go.

Thank you.



Wow, dude.
That's really fucking good.

No, it's not. It's shit.

Can I touch it?

Can I touch it?


No, dude. No.


[Waves crashing]


I'm kind of freaking out.

I don't know what that was.

Don't worry about it.

I'm still in love
with Silvia.

I know.

You want to head back
to the city?

No. I think I'm going to stay
out here for a little bit

and watch the surf.

[Speaking indistinctly]

I'll see you later.

[Woman breathing heavily]

You good?

I'm good.

Do you have time
for a drink?


I just got
to make this call.


I'll meet you at the bar.Yeah.

Double shot of tequila?

You know me.

Per usue.

All right,
I'll see you in there.


[Door opening and closing]


I've been trying to fire her
for, like, years.

But you can't,
because she's older.

And that's not PC, I guess.
I don't know.

I mean, just do the work,

Well, hey, I mean, you should
definitely do the work.

But you got to be
respectful to these people too.


You know.

You can totally go
if you need to.

I'm just going to finish
my drink and then head home.

I'm cool.
No, I'm serious.

No, I just told my friends
I would meet up with them.

You want to come?

No, no, no.

No, I...

I got to get home.

I don't want
to leave you here alone.

No. I'm fine.

You can leave me alone.
I'm a big girl.

Are you sure?

Yes. Go.

See you.

See you.



Sam, just--

Okay, but I don't have time.

I don't have time
to sit here

and text you the entire

Just call me.

Okay, sorry. I got confused.

Sorry. Should I send you
the one I think it is?

Just send it over
and I'll look at it,

and I'll send it back. Okay.

Okay, bye. I'm sorry.

[Phone ringing]

[Phone ringing]


Hi, it's Sam.
I'm in the conference room.

Are you here? Fuck.




Given recent trends in the
Hong Kong real estate market

over the last eight quarters,

we expect our investments
to generate a return of 12%

over the next four quarters.

[Putting phone down]

Didn't we revise
these numbers

based on the updated
inflation assumptions?

Yeah, I--
I revised them.

Uh, what model
did you use?


Where's the--
Where's the version I sent you?

I-- I didn't get it.

What do you mean
you didn't get it?

I sent it. Because that's all
you had to do,

was go in, take the outputs
and plug them into the deck.

You didn't learn how to open
your e-mail and copy and paste?

You need me to do that
for you too?

I'm sorry, Charles. We can't--

We can't continue
with this meeting.

Jason, would you
take this offline

and help the team fix it?

I got it.Thank you.

All right, folks.
Let's reconvene tomorrow.

Thank you.


We can revisit the correct
outputs tomorrow.

Now, take the rest
of the day off.

No. No, it's fine.

I'll stick around and make sure
that they can do it right.

You've been working
really hard lately.

Give the team
clear marching orders.


And take
the afternoon.

Here we go.

Start to feel the rhythm.

Start pedalling
just a little bit faster

to the beat of the music.

Really grind it all the way
into the ground.

Give it ten seconds,
right here.

Come on, back row.
All you have to lose

is the fat on your ass!

Then maybe you'd be
on your way.

Go, go!

How do you feel?

[People cheering]

Keep going. Four...




Hey, sexy. You ready?

Um, hello to you too.

Don't you want
to get a drink first?

No, let's go.

I got to meet a client
in an hour.

No, have a drink.

Can I get you anything?

Two double shots
of tequila.

So, um...

does everyone in the office
hate me now?

You mean more
than they did before?


That's very funny.

You're feisty today.

I like it.

[Breathing heavily]

Do you even like me?

I love fucking you.

No, that's not
what I meant.

What do you mean?

I mean, do you like me
as a person?

As a person?


You just said that everyone
in the office hates me.


You can be
a real bitch sometimes.

But the sex is great.

I like it, you like it.

That's what we agreed on,


Is that a problem?


[Breathing heavily]

Wait, wait, wait, wait,
wait, wait.

Um, this isn't going
to work for me.

We can do it
on the sink.

Wait, okay.
Stop, stop, stop, stop.

I don't--

I meant that I--
I don't want to do this.


I mean, I--
I can't do this.

I meant, just not today.

And, um...

probably not tomorrow.


I'm sorry.

Don't be sorry.

Thank you.


[Cork popping]

[Water running]


[Computer printer whirring]




Aren't you supposed
to be at work?

I took the day off.

What are you doing here?

I just have to print
my script.

Um, I'm only going to be
a few more minutes.

No, no, no. Take--
Take your time.

Do you want
a glass of wine?


Do you want
a glass of wine?

No, I'm fine.

[Liquid pouring]

Did you finish
your script?


That's good.

Are you giving it to Todd?

Uh, no, I--
I fired him.



I met this new producer.

She's really interested
in the idea,

so I'm going
to submit it to her.

That's great.

Are you happy with it?

Me? Happy?


Yeah. I mean, I'm--
I'm pretty happy with it.

It still needs some work,

[Banging stapler]

Do you want to talk?

[Banging stapler]


I mean, I didn't
come here to talk.


Do you need any help, or...?

No, I'm good.


Well, I'm going to go
lie down.

So you just
take your time.



I'm leaving.

I'll let you know next time
I'm coming by,

so this doesn't
happen again.


Or you know what? Um...

maybe we can just agree
on a time

that I can come by
and get the rest of my stuff,

so I don't have to keep
coming back.


I just want to say...

that I know
that I hurt you.

I didn't mean to,
but I know that I did.

And I'm really sorry.

I'm really sorry.

And I understand
if you...


...don't ever want
to see me again, or...

or talk to me.

That's not what I want.


Do you really
want to talk?


What you did
was horrible...

and really
fucking hurtful.

I'm not sure if I'm going to be
able to forgive you right now.


But I will
take responsibility.

Because it takes two.
I recognize that.

And I played
my part as well.

I-- I can't always...

I can't always articulate
my feelings.


sometimes I don't know
what I want.

But that doesn't-- That doesn't
make me a bad guy.

So you're right.

I am unhappy.

But I really love you.

And I'm willing to try
and make this work if you are.

I am.



How do we start?
