Hero (2002)
Synopsis: In this visually arresting martial arts epic set in ancient China, an unnamed fighter (Jet Li) is being honored for defeating three of the king's most dangerous enemies. When Nameless recounts his battles with the assassins -- Broken Sword (Tony Leung Chiu Wai), Flying Snow (Maggie Cheung Man-yuk) and Moon (Zhang Ziyi) -- the king begins to question some of the details. As Nameless goes on, the king challenges the tales, interjecting his own take on these perhaps suspect version of events.

DONNA:

I think our best course right now

would be to focus on the Probation

Officer's report...

BERNIE:

He gives a good report and I walk?

DONNA:

We can hope.

(consulting her notes)

You still have your job, right?

BERNIE:

Yeah, I been calling in sick. They

think I got the flu.

DONNA:

And a son by your ex-wife? Joseph.

BERNIE:

A son, yeah. What about him? Joey.

DONNA:

Are you pretty involved in his

upbringing?

BERNIE:

Involved! Christ! She attached my

goddamn paycheck! Child support.

Why do you think I can't afford a

lawyer?

(then...)

You know what I mean. Why I got

a court appointed lawyer instead

of a, uh, more experienced...

DONNA:

I understand. How often do you see

your son?

BERNIE:

Often, uh.

DONNA:

How recently?

BERNIE:

Uh, his birthday, uh, May. I

think.

DONNA:

It's November.

BERNIE:

(beat... beat...

beat...)

She don't like me to see him.

Says I'm a bad influence.
