on her cigarette, calmer now.
At least now I'll be able to blame
the state, not God, for my
INT. AUDITORIUM - DAY
I am sorry, gentlemen, sorry for all
of us. Your's is a complicated, sad
to each other.
And I never knew that. I was living
a life of simplicity, of purity,
when I was ripped out of my Eden and
immersed in this harshness. Some
would argue that the life I was living
was not a human life at all. And,
gentlemen, I don't have any clever
retort. I am not a philosopher. The
only thing I know is that I am sorry,
sorry for my expulsion from Eden,
sorry for my Lila rotting in her
jail cell, and sorry for Nathan...
rotting in his grave.
Human Nature (2001)
Synopsis: A philosophical burlesque, "Human Nature" follows the ups and downs of an obsessive scientist, a female naturalist, and the man they discover, born and raised in the wild. As scientist Nathan (Tim Robbins) trains the wild man (Rhys Ifans) in the ways of the world - starting with table manners - Nathan's lover Lila (Patricia Arquette) fights to preserve the man's simian past, which represents a freedom enviable to most.
