Ma (2019) | Transcript

A lonely woman befriends a group of teenagers and decides to let them party at her house. Just when the kids think their luck couldn't get any better, things start happening that make them question the intention of their host.
Ma (2019)

Original title: Ma
Release date: May 31, 2019
Running time: 1h 39m
Ma is rated R for violence, disturbing behavior, language, sexual content, and teen drug and alcohol use. It is not suitable for children or sensitive viewers. You should watch it with discretion and be prepared for some graphic and disturbing scenes.

Octavia Spencer stars as Sue Ann, a loner who keeps to herself in her quiet Ohio town. One day, she is asked by Maggie, a new teenager in town (Diana Silvers), to buy some booze for her and her friends, and Sue Ann sees the chance to make some unsuspecting, if younger, friends of her own. She offers the kids the chance to avoid drinking and driving by hanging out in the basement of her home. But there are some house rules: One of the kids has to stay sober. Don’t curse. Never go upstairs. And call her “Ma.” But as Ma’s hospitality starts to curdle into obsession, what began as a teenage dream turns into a terrorizing nightmare, and Ma’s place goes from the best place in town to the worst place on earth.

I didn’t smoke anything.

And they asked me just to go out, so I said okay.

It’s really not that big a deal.

I’m not gonna be some fucking loser

I think you’re trying to get back at me.

Come on.

We both know you had a thing for me,

and I barely gave you the time of day.

You’re a loser, Sue Ann.

You always have been, and it’s pathetic.

(QUIETLY): Some people just don’t change, do they?

No. They don’t.

This is your one warning, Sue Ann.

And if I hear that my son has ended up anywhere near you

or your damn house, I won’t be calling the police.

I’ll handle it myself.

You understand me?

(DOOR OPENS, CLOSES)

Sue Ann, put down the damn phone.

Get the clippers and shave this fella.

(BUZZING)

MAGGIE: Genie is Ma’s daughter, and she never told us.

Okay? She can walk.

And she’s been in that house

the whole time we’ve been there.

Ma went to high school with our parents.

Like, she tore out pages from her yearbook

and pasted herself in pictures with your dad

and my mom and Mercedes.

I mean, it’s so creepy!

Who cares?

Pancreatic cancer’s some fucked-up shit.

All that medicine makes you do some weird stuff.

You can’t be serious.

My mom acted weird, too, before she died.

Oh.

I’m sorry about your mom.

But I don’t… I don’t think Sue Ann has cancer.

I think she used to be in love with your dad,

and I think she’s, like, in love with you now.

Well, duh.

(CHUCKLES)

Oh, my God.

I’m kidding.

You’re totally into it.

I’m sort of kidding, yeah.

Leaving, that was the easy part.

I didn’t worry about that. The move was hard.

SUE ANN: Oh, I hear you loud and clear with that one.

(CHUCKLES)

Right? And I just never realized

how much stuff I had until I saw it all in boxes.

Oh. Mm, mm, mm. (CHUCKLES)

So…

It was diffi…

Hi, honey!

I want you to meet someone.

This is Sue Ann.

Mags?

Maggie.

Nice to meet you, Maggie.

Nice to meet you, too.

She works at the vet where we take Lou.

And then she was just stopping in

to check on how he was doing.

Oh, just a friendly follow-up to make sure

there wasn’t a reaction to the shots.

Here. Come. Sit down.

(CHUCKLES): And guess what.

We went to high school together,

with Ben and Mercedes. (CHUCKLES)

Huh.

Mm. So, uh, where do you go to school, Maggie?

I go to Franklin.

I know how hard it can be to make friends.

ERICA: Well, she’s doing good. She’s made some great friends.

Really nice kids. I’m proud of her.

Oh, shoot. Look at me.

Oh.

Always running behind. (CHUCKLES)

Sorry to just drop by unannounced. (CHUCKLES)

I just get so attached to these animals so quickly.

Oh.

There’s probably something wrong with me.

Oh, please.

(CHUCKLES)

Thank you so much.

Come by anytime. You’re welcome.

(SUE ANN CHUCKLES)

It was so good to see you.

You, too.

And, Maggie,

you look after that dog for me, now.

(CHUCKLES)

BOY: (MOANS) Don’t stop.

Don’t stop. Don’t stop. Don’t.

(MOANING)

Yeah.

Um, Ben, are you gonna talk to me tomorrow?

Let’s get out of here.

Okay.

So, how was she?

Was she good?

It was fucking awesome.

they wouldn’t want to be friends with me anymore.

You are 16 years old. Do you realize…

(STAMMERS) Sneaking booze at prom is one thing.

But hanging around in this fucking bitch’s house

while she’s feeding everyone alcohol,

that is unacceptable!

What are you doing?

I’m calling Andy’s father,

No! Stop!

Please don’t call him. He had nothing to do with this.

He’s the most innocent one of all of us.

Please don’t call him.

Go in your room. Go to your room.

Your ass is staying in this house till summer break!

Hey, Erica.

You ever come near my house or my daughter again,

I’m calling the police.

What kind of mother parties with high schoolers?

I think you’ve had a little too much coffee.

Excuse me.

I’m not joking here.

Back the fuck off.

Oh, I know how to deal with your type.

Pretty, athletic, popular.

But then you did move home to sling cocktails at casinos…

They’re children!

What the fuck is wrong with you?

How does it feel to be on the outside looking in?

Well, I can assure you
