I think of all the things
that have been written about me.
That I am an inhuman female demon.
That I am an innocent victim of a blackguard,
forced against my will and in danger of my own life.
That I was too ignorant to know how to act,
and that to hang me would be judicial murder.
That I am well and decently dressed,
that I robbed a dead woman to appear so.
That I am of a sullen disposition with a quarrelsome temper.
That I have the appearance of a person
rather above my humble station.
That I am a good girl with a pliable nature
and no harm is told of me.
That I am cunning and devious.
That I am soft in the head and little better than an idiot.
And I wonder,
how can I be all of these different things at once?
I have been an inmate at the Kingston Penitentiary
for 15 long years.
I was convicted of murder when I was a young girl.
Though at the time I thought of myself as a grown woman.
Every day I am brought to the governor's house.
They say I'm there to do light housework.
Come, come, ladies.
Though mostly I'm there to be an object of curiosity.
They stare without appearing to, Doctor,
out from under their bonnets.
The reason they want to see me
is that I am a celebrated murderess.
Or that is what has been written down.
When I first saw it I was surprised,
because they say "Celebrated singer,"
and "Celebrated poetess" and "Celebrated actress,"
but what is there to celebrate about a murder?
All the same.
"Murderess" is a strong word to have attached to you.
It has a smell to it, that word.
Musky and oppressive, like dead flowers in a vase.
Sometimes at night I whisper it over to myself.
It rustles like a taffeta skirt across the floor.
Murderer is merely brutal.
It's like a hammer or a lump of metal.
I'd rather be a murderess than a murderer,
if those are the only choices.
There was much excitement about you
coming to Kingston, Dr. Jordan.
Those who wanted to see me pardoned believed
that a report from you could set me free.
You were much better regarded than the other doctors
who came to examine me over the years.
Hold still, Grace.
Dr. Smith needs to get a proper measurement.
There's nothing to be afraid of.
They thought you could find answers
where others could not.
I'd be careful if I were you.
She's murdered two people in cold blood.
She's in here for good reason.
Good Morning, Grace.
I understand you're afraid of doctors.
I must tell you right away that I myself am a doctor.
My name is Dr. Jordan. Dr. Simon Jordan.
I suppose you are here to measure my head.
I would not dream of it.
Are you American?
Are you the doctor they have brought to write a report?
Do you have a bag with knives in it?
I am not the usual kind of doctor.
I do no cutting open.
Are you afraid of me, Grace?
It's too early to tell.
This is for you.
I'm not a dog.
当然 格蕾丝 我知道你不是狗
No, Grace, I can see you're not a dog.
What is it, Grace?
It has such an odor of the outdoors.
Can you tell me what it is?
And what does an apple remind you of?
Who shall we marry?
请再说一遍 先生 我不明白
I beg your pardon, Sir. I don't understand you.
I think you understand me well enough.
Something you eat.
Well, I should hope you would, Sir.
That's what an apple is for.
Is there any kind of apple you should not eat?
A rotten one, I suppose.
Are you a preacher?
No. I'm not a preacher.
I am a doctor that works not with bodies,
but with the mind.
Diseases of the mind and the brain,
and the nerves.
I won't go back there to the asylum.
Flesh and blood cannot stand it.
They took liberties, Sir.
They don't listen to reason there, Sir.
And that is what I am here for.
To listen to reason.
But if I am to listen to you, you will have to talk to me.
You won't believe me, Sir.
Anyway, it's all been decided,
and what I say will not change anything.
You should ask the lawyers and judges,
and the newspaper men,
they seem to know my story better than I do myself.
In any case, I've lost that part of my memory entirely.
They must have told you that.
I would like to help you, Grace.
If you will try to talk, I will try to listen.
My interest is purely scientific.
It is not only the murders that should concern us.
Perhaps, I will tell you lies.
Perhaps, you will.
Perhaps, you will tell them without meaning to,
perhaps you will tell them deliberately.
Perhaps, you are a liar.
There are those who have said I am one.
That is a chance we'll have to take.
