Sticky Notes

Synopsis: The film explores the story of Athena (Rose Leslie), a struggling dancer trying to make it in LA. Athena's father Jack (Ray Liotta) interrupts her lonely and detached existence when he asks her to move home to Florida to care for him... big news: he has cancer. Nursing Jack proves more and more challenging for Athena. So much so that when she is called back to LA for the greatest dance opportunity of her twenty-five years, she takes it. What follows is a heart-wrenching journey of growing up told with ample moments of humor and levity, candidly illuminating father/daughter relationships and bonds that despite being broken always find their way back home.

-"Please put all wet food

down the garbage disposal."

"I am sensitive to the

smell of rotting food."

"Don't let the same

dog bite you twice."

"What did you do with

my sunglasses???"

-Alright people,

let's get started.

Put your bags aside.

Now I know you all wake up

every morning and

you brush your teeth...


You drink your coffee and

you smoke your cigarettes.

You put on your little leotard.

And you come to audition.

You come to work.

But what makes today

the day that you book?

What makes today more than

just a job, more than just your

stupid little dancer's

life playing out in a loop?

-Five, six, seven, eight...

One and two.

Three and four.

And five and six...

and seven and eight...

One, two, three, four...

Five, six, seven and eight...

One, two, three, four...

Five, six and seven--

-Athena, how long have you

been auditioning for me?

- Six years.

- Six years?

So I'm going to ask

you one last time:

How bad do you want this?

- Max, you know--

- Shut up!

More than your family?

- Yes--

- More than your friends?

- What friends?

- Alright - you can go.

- Choke me.


Like you're raping me.

- What?

- I like it rough.

Harder... Oh God!

Oh my God I'm gonna cum!

Oh God...

Oh God...

I think I'm still drunk...

and bad with names in general.


- Right.

- Bryan.

- Well Bry, that... that was


-It was fun.


Give it to me.

Don't leave me hanging.

At some point did you

ask me to rape you?

Did that actually happen?

- What if I did?

- I've just been out of

the game for a while.

I don't know if that's

like a thing now.

I don't know if I know

an actress in L.A. who

doesn't smoke cigarettes.

- Why, have you been f***ing

a whole load of actresses?

- Maybe.

- Well it's alright because

I'm not an actress.

- You're not?

- Sex is better when guys think

they're banging actresses.

A kindergarten

teacher is a close second

but a... it's no actress.

- Kindergarten teacher is

pretty sexy actually.

- Well I'm pretty sexy.

- So how long have

you been doing that?

- Not long.

Because I'm not really

a kindergarten teacher.

- You uh--

I think your booty call

is trying to get a hold of you.

-Booty call, no.

Boyfriend, yes.

I'm kidding.

- I can't tell if you're funny

or just bat sh*t crazy.

- You must have a pretty

lame sense of humor

if you think that's funny.

- Who's Jack?

- Dude, I just met you

five minutes ago.

Please don't snoop my phone.

Give it back.

- Tell me who Jack is first.

- Jack-- Jack is my father.

He drunk dials me sometimes.

- Prove it.

- I really don't feel like

talking to him right now.

- It's because you're a liar.

- I only lied about

being an actress.

- And a kindergarten

teacher, so...

track record's not great.

- Oh you want me to

prove it to you?

Fine... fine.

Let's see what Jack,

my father, has to say.

- Athena...

- Alright-- I get it.

- goddess of wisdom, it's your--

It's daddy.

King Jack, the Duke of Soul.

I need you to come to

Florida as soon as possible.

Big News... I have cancer.

- Honey Bunny.

- Did you forget about me?

- No matter how hard I tried, I

could never forget about you.

- Is it just me or did

your b*obs get smaller?

- It's just you.

- A hug- Athena.

Come here...

come on.

- I got it... I'm fine.

- Pink...

- Yeah, it's been

pink for a while.

- Really.

- You wouldn't know that though.

- You haven't visited

me in three years.

What do you think?

So, how's the dancing going?


Hey, I hear all the young

girls are shaving off

all their cabbage these days.
