Killing Me Softly (2002)
Joseph Fiennes: Adam Tallis
Adam Tallis : We spend our lives searching for our other half.
Adam Tallis : I have nothing to hide, Alice!
Adam Tallis : [as Alice puts on her stockings] Don't turn away.
[looks at her appreciatively]
Adam Tallis : Come here tomorrow.
Alice : [up close together, forehead touching his, longingly:] I have to work.
Adam Tallis : Then come back tonight.
Alice : I can't.
Adam Tallis : Whenever you want, Alice. You decide, and I'll be here.
Alice : [as Adam is about to tie her up, alarmed:] What are you doing?
Adam Tallis : What am I doing? I'm making you mine!
[ties Alice to the table]
Alice : Sometimes I feel Ike I don't know you.
Adam Tallis : Oh, you know me. You know everything you need to know.
[grabs her face]
Adam Tallis : Look at me.
[she keeps her eyes closed]
Adam Tallis : Please.
Adam Tallis : Open your eyes!
Adam Tallis : [sits looking down at his loosely tied captive] Have you been with another man?
Alice : [smiles] No.
Adam Tallis : [whispers] What are you doing, then, hmm? What's going on in there?
[taps her forehead, then gets up]
Adam Tallis : Why... why do you keep sneaking around? Is... is the suspicion exciting? Do you need it to get off? What is it?
Alice : [sits upright] i found Adèle's letters.
Adam Tallis : You..."found"... Adèle's letters?
Adam Tallis : Is that how you tell the story? They were just... sitting with my keys and you happened to notice them?
[rushes up the stairs, promptly returning, scattering letters]
Adam Tallis : Look what I just happened to find. These... and these! And I found these! Here, read them! I have nothing to hide, Alice!
[she lies down, feigning indifference, and he comes down the stairs]
Adam Tallis : Do you sneak around behind my back because you... need it to get rougher and rougher? I mean, is that it? I'm trying to understand you, Alice. Do you do this so I punish you?
Adam Tallis : Is that where you're going?
Alice : [lies down] Adam... please untie me.
Adam Tallis : If you trusted me...
Adam Tallis : you wouldn't be in this position, Alice.
Alice : [sits upright again] I just... I just wanted to know more about you... I wanted to know your past. And I wanted to know your stories. I just thought if I knew more... that I could love you more. I know the only thing that matters is us together. I know that. Because when you're not around, I get lost.
[sad little sniffle]
Adam Tallis : It drives me crazy to think about losing you.
[strokes her bound feet lovingly, and as she lies down flat again, he kisses the nearest foot, sighing:]
Adam Tallis : I'm yours, Alice. What more do you need to know?
[his hands on her throat:]
Adam Tallis : I could break your neck, I love you so much. Do you want to stay here? I mean... do you like this?
Alice : Adam... I have to pee.
Adam Tallis : [to police officers in interrogation room] I would never hurt her. I love her.
Alice : [looking through one-way mirror] You brought him in?
Senior Police Officer : He walked in, looking for you. He brought in a pair of shoes. He was worried about your feet...
[Alice contemplates this]
Senior Police Officer : I believe your husband has the potential for violence. I believe he's unpredictable. But is he a murderer? I don't know. The truth is, what you two have been doing together was consensual. You said it yourself. You liked it.
