Heavenly Creatures (1994)
Sarah Peirse: Honora Parker Rieper
[shortly before the murder]
Juliet Hulme : [admiring the view that includes the path down the hill, where the murder occurred] Isn't it beautiful?
Pauline Parker : Let's go for a walk down here. Come on, Mummy!
Honorah Parker Rieper : Oh! No, I'd like a cup of tea, first. Come on!
[the girls reluctantly follow her into the tea-house]
Pauline Parker : I felt thoroughly depressed and even quite seriously considered committing suicide. Life seemed so much not worth the living and death such an easy way out.
Honorah Parker Rieper : Love, you can still write to each other.
Pauline Parker : Anger against Mother boiled up inside me, as it is she who is one of the main obstacles in my path. Suddenly a means of ridding myself of this obstacle occurred to me. If she were to die...
[During a night rain-storm, Dr. Hulme knocks on the Riepers' door]
Dr. Henry Hulme : Mrs. Rieper, may I come in?
Honorah Parker Rieper : Yes, of course.
Dr. Henry Hulme : Thank you.
[They sit in the parlor]
Dr. Henry Hulme : Your daughter's an imaginative and spirited girl.
Honorah Parker Rieper : Look, if she's spending too much time at your house, you only need to say. All those nights that she spends over, she assured us that you don't mind.
Dr. Henry Hulme : It, it's rather more complicated than that. Since Mrs. Hulme and I have returned home, Juliet has been behaving in a rather disturbed manner... surliness, general irritability - most uncharacteristic.
Herbert Rieper : Sure I can't tempt you to a nice sherry, Dr. Hulme?
Dr. Henry Hulme : No, thank you. The thing is...
Honorah Parker Rieper : Yvonne hasn't been herself, either. Locking herself away in her room, endlessly writing.
Dr. Henry Hulme : My wife and I feel the friendship is... unhealthy.
Herbert Rieper : No arguments there, Dr. Hulme! All that time inside working on those novels of theirs. They don't get fresh air or exercise!
Honorah Parker Rieper : I'm not sure what you mean, Dr. Hulme.
Dr. Henry Hulme : Your daughter appears to have formed a rather unwholesome attachment to Juliet.
Honorah Parker Rieper : What's she done?
Dr. Henry Hulme : She hasn't done anything. It's the intensity of the friendship that concerns me. I think we should avert trouble before it starts.
