The Loved Ones

Synopsis: In order to avoid a ghostly figure in the road, high school senior Brent Mitchell wraps his car around a tree, killing his father. Constantly confronted by his mother's emotional collapse after the accident, Brent escapes into a marijuana fueled world of loud metal music to block the pain and guilt. Dejected and out of sorts, he has a shot at happiness with his girlfriend Holly, a grounded, caring girl with drop dead good looks, a dream date for the high school prom. But his plans are thwarted by a disturbing series of events that take place under a mirrored disco ball, involving pink satin, glitter, syringes, nails, power drills and a secret admirer. Brent has become the prom king at a macabre, sadistic event where he is the entertainment.

# Back in school

you were high class

# Didn't say much to me

# Johnny said on the outside

# You were his beauty queen

# Have you heard

about the lonesome loser

# Beaten by the queen of hearts

every time

# Have you heard

about the lonesome loser

# He's a loser

but he still keeps on trying

# Sit down,

take a look at yourself

# Don't you want to be somebody?

# Someday somebody's

going to see inside

# You have to face up,

you can't run and hide...

Love this song.

- You need a new car, Dad.

- No, I don't.

Yes, you do.

It's a piece of shit.

Hey, I love this car.

You were conceived

in the back of this car.


Thanks, that's great.

I've got a mental image.

# He's a loser

but he still keeps on trying...

Heater doesn't work.

Doesn't even have a CD player.

And thank Christ for that.

Otherwise I'd have to listen

to that bloody heavy metal

wrist slitting shit you listen to.

You sound like an old man, Dad.

There's nothing wrong

with a good melody.

Oh no, there's nothing wrong

with a good melody.

Don't think that she's not sneaking

the odd one here and there.

Look out!

You sorted for alcohol?

I got shit loads, man.

Got the old man to pick it up.

- I'm OK.

- Coming to the after-party?

No, think we're just gonna smoke

and hang out.

Smoke and hang out?

Man, Holly's parents are overseas

and you're just gonna smoke

and hang out?

You got a raincoat?

Here, I've only got one,

ribbed, for her pleasure.

Seriously, take it dude.

It's only gonna run out of date

if I hang onto it.



She said yes!


Will you go to the dance with me?

Sorry Lola,

I'm going with Holly.


Hey! Need a ride?

- You passed?

- Uh-huh.


Well done.

So where do you want to go?

- Guess who asked me to the dance?

- Who?

- Guess.

- Brent, who was it?

Tell me.

Who is she?

I need more than that.

Tell me.

I can't.

She's very sensitive.

I'm very sensitive too.


Who is she?

Not you.

Who is she?

I'll never tell.

# God is dead so meet the kids now,

they're on stage... #

Did you tell your mum

I was getting my license?

So this is where I pick you up from?

She's got to deal with it sometime.

You sure?


I'll pick you up at seven?

I love you.

Lola Stone.


That's who asked me.

Well you should go with her.

Maybe she won't mind having

an emotional retard for a boyfriend.

How are you getting there?

Holly's picking me up.

She doesn't even have her licence.

She got it today.

I'll give you money for a cab.

What's the difference,

it's still a car.

I'm still in a car.

But they're experienced.

And I wasn't, so Dad died?

# I could mean the world to you

but that's predictable

# I could tell you secrets

# Don't be so sure

you wouldn't miss me

# Say you're in love like it's true... #


# She's like a drug,

she's under my skin

# One of these days

these ways are gonna do me in

# What can I say

# I can't get away

from those sticky paws

# Sometimes the sweetest kittens

have the sharpest claws... #

You're a fucking rock star.

Let's go.

Wow, you look wicked.


- Er... Hi, Mrs. Valentine.

- Hello, Jamie.

Mia, your father wants to get a photo.

Could wait a sec, please?

Well did you thank Jamie

for the flowers?

- Oh, no, that's OK.

- Thanks.

Well, I couldn't find them in black.

I'll put them in some water.


Ringo! Here!

- Get out of there.

- Er...

Hey, hi.

How's it going, Mr. Valentine?

Busy, keeping the wolf

from the door.

Yep, excellent.

Let's get this photo then.

Mia, go and stand next to Jamie.


And one for safety.
