The Limey script
The Limey (1999)
Synopsis: The Limey follows Wilson (Terence Stamp), a tough English ex-con who travels to Los Angeles to avenge his daughter's death. Upon arrival, Wilson goes to task battling Valentine (Peter Fonda) and an army of L.A.'s toughest criminals, hoping to find clues and piece together what happened. After surviving a near-death beating, getting thrown from a building and being chased down a dangerous mountain road, the Englishman decides to dole out some bodily harm of his own.

WILSON:

Edward Rama?

ED:

Eduardo.

(rolling the R)

Rama.

WILSON:

You're home, then.

He turns, waves away the taxi he's kept waiting. While

Eduardo Rama waits for an introduction.

WILSON:

My name's Wilson.

Accent speaks for itself. Hard, working-class.

ED:

Wilson?

Knows the name. But just now it's unexpected. He's holding

a hot TV dinner, hand protected by a dish towel.

WILSON:

You wrote to me about my daughter.

CUT.

INT. ED'S HOUSE. NIGHT.

Ed takes Wilson inside.

ED:

I didn't expect anyone.

WILSON:

No reason.

ED:

I mean, what has it been -- six months?

WILSON:

Round about, yeah.

They've entered a cauldron of family life. TV blaring

(SHOWBIZ TONIGHT!). A couple of younger KIDS yelling "Mama".

Their MOTHER shouting back at them from the kitchen (in

Spanish) that she only has two hands. A sullen TEENAGER

walking by.

ED:

I didn't even know who I was writing to --

just someone with the same last name.

She never talked about any family.
