Best scene in the whole movie. The little subtle things Jolie does.
When Ryders character “fake swallows” the pills and Jolie “talks” with her hand puppet in the background.
Ryder: What are these?
Nurse: Just some laxatives.
Ryder: Oh I don’t need-
Nurse: Are we going to have a problem?
Jolie in childish voice mastering the hand puppet: Are we gonna have a problem?
Ryder fake swallows and shows her empty tongue to the nurse.
Jolie in same voice: Surrender. Are we gonna have a problem?
Ryder looks at Jolie when she sneaks the pills from her mouth to her pocket.
Jolie: No? No problem.
The song makes me cry. It tears the heart out of my chest. It’s the ultimate don’t-leave-me-song. Lines like ‘I will give you pearls made of rain from a country that doesn’t exist.’ It fucks with my head. You want to go rewrite every song you’ve ever written.
