76 min

Got a letter from

your crazy aunt's lawyer.

Said she needs a live-in.

How much you make this week?

She's got money.

And we're the only

family she's got.

Says right here, I'm in charge.

What are you saying?

Be nice.

Be loving. Take care of her.

That's what I'm saying.

You think you could do that?

Heck, I'd even name

the baby after her.


Kind of catchy don't you think?

Food ain't free, you know.

I feel numb.

Like everyone sort

of half likes me.

Or half hates me.

There are days I'd pay the devil

himself to get me out of here.

Today was one of those days.


Aunt dora?

Aunt dora?

Aunt dora?

It's me Adele.

It's nice to be here.

I found an old

picture of you.

You were so pretty.

Maybe later we can-

-just leave it there.

Excuse me.

Do you have any of these?

-They'd be right there.

-She said exclusively imported.

She's bought them here before.

-I'll go check.




I don't know, mom.

I haven't seen her.

She's always in her room.

Ask her if you can

get an advance.

These baby vitamins,

so damn expensive.

Okay. I gotta go.

She's calling.


Can I get you something?

It's been so long, I almost

forgot about the doll.

Hope you don't mind but...

I put it away.

It always gave me the

creeps, you know.

Anyway, mom

said to say hi.

Let me know if you

need anything.



Can I get a slice

and an orange soda?

-Plain cheese?




-Actually, just

an orange soda.



Let me get it.

-Are you sure?


I can pay you back.

-Don't worry about it.


thank you.

-I'm sitting over there,

if you want to join me.

Oh, sure.

-I'll have a soda.


I saw you staring at

me the other day.

Where do you live?

In the tower on main.

How about you?

-Staying at my aunt's.

-Here in town?

Over on wyndham.

The street with

all the victorians.

Some strange cats

those victorians.

You know what they

used do for fun?

They'd dress up in weird

costumes, pose for each other.

Tableau vivants.

Can you imagine?

Your great grandmother,

dressed up like a nymph.

Dancing around while

everyone cheered.

Had some crazy times.

Aunt dora:
You're late.

Sorry, I...

Just go to bed.

I made a new friend today.


She's not like the

girls back home.

She doesn't care what

anyone else thinks.

She just says things.

Whatever is on her mind.

I wish I was more like that.



Sardines, huh?

Lucky cat.


So this is your

aunt's house?

I'd invite

you in but...

Aw, come on... I'm just

about dying of thirst.

You'd be cruel not to

offer me a glass of water.


I just bought some


They're from Mexico,

do you want one?

Just water's

fine. Thanks.

You can't go up there.

Why not?

She doesn't like having

people in the house.

What's through here?

It's just

the basement.

Far out.

Here. Try it on.

Come on.

What do you think?

She's agoraphobic.

So, she won't go outside?

Won't even leave her room.

-What's the point?

Sometimes I wonder.

-Wonder what?

Can you unzip me?

I'll be quiet.

Adele, I'm jealous.

Your life is so Jane eyre-ish.

Complete with a mad

woman in the attic.

But I have to tell you, the

house smells really bad.

The whole place should

be fumigated...

With her inside.

I'm glad you came.

Do you like my blouse?

You have such nice things.

Looks nice on you.

How much is it?

Aunt dora?

I was wondering, do you

think I might be able...

To get a little advance?
