Gladiator (2000) Poster


Connie Nielsen: Lucilla



  • Lucilla : Today I saw a slave become more powerful than the Emperor of Rome.

  • Marcus Aurelius : Let us pretend that you are a loving daughter, and I am a good father.

    Lucilla : This is a pleasant fiction, is it not?

  • Lucilla : Is Rome worth one good man's life? We believed it once. Make us believe it again. He was a soldier of Rome. Honor him.

    Gracchus : Who will help me carry him?

    [Gladiators surround Maximus to carry him out of the arena] 

  • Proximo : Congratulations, you have very persuasive friends.

    Lucilla : My brother's had Gracchus arrested. We daren't wait any longer. We must leave tonight. Proximo will be here t midnight and take you to the gate. Your servant, Cicero will be waiting there with horses.

    [Maximus nods] 

    Maximus : You have done all this?

    Lucilla : Yes.

    Maximus : [sighs]  You risk too much.

    Lucilla : I have much to pay for.

    [Maximus shakes his head] 

    Maximus : You have nothing to pay for. You love your son, you are strong for him.

    Lucilla : I am tired of being strong.(sighs) My brother hates all the world and you most of all.

    Maximus : Because your father chose me.

    Lucilla : No because my father loved you... and because I loved you.

    Maximus : A long time ago.

    [kisses her hand] 

    Lucilla : [smiles]  Was I very different then?

    Maximus : (shakes his head, touches her face with his finger) You laughed more.

    Lucilla : I have felt alone all my life, except with you. I must go.

    Maximus : Yes.

    [kisses Lucilla one last time] 

  • Lucilla : What did my father want with you?

    Maximus : To wish me well before I leave for home.

    Lucilla : You're lying, I could always tell when you were lying because you were never any good at it.

    Maximus : I never acquired your comfort with it.

    Lucilla : True, but then you never had to, life is more simple for a soldier. Or do you think me heartless?

    Maximus : I think you have a talent for survival.

  • Lucilla : Please be quiet, brother! Your constant scheming gives me even more of a headache!

  • [Lucilla tries to convince Maximus to conspire with Senator Gracchus] 

    Lucilla : This man wants what you want.

    Maximus : Then have *him* kill Commodus!

  • Lucilla : I want to help you.

    Maximus : Yes, you can help me... Forget you ever knew me, and never come back here again.
