Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Where was the 2022 movie 'Windfall' set?

Answer: California

Windfall was set in California in the US. The movie was shot in its entirety at one location - 2196 Grand Avenue, Ojai, California. The property is a 3 bedroom hacienda which sits on a picturesque 21 acres of land and has views of the majestic Topa Topa mountains.

The home was sold in 2014 for US3.6 million. The reason director, Charlie McDowell, shot the film in this location is that Ojai is actually McDowell's hometown. Because the movie was designed to be shot in one location, and has the sum total of four cast members, it was able to be filmed during the Covid pandemic without having much of an impact on the cast, the crew or anyone else.
2. Who are the leading actors in the 2022 movie 'Windfall'?

Answer: Jason Segel, Lily Collins, Jesse Plemons

Jason Segel, Lily Collins, and Jesse Plemons is the correct answer. Jason Segel plays Nobody, and is best known for his role as Marshall in 'How I Met Your Mother'. Lily Collins plays Wife and is the real-life wife of the Director, Charlie McDowell. She is perhaps best known as the star of 'Emily in Paris'. Jesse Plemons is CEO and has had previous roles in 'Game Night', 'Breaking Bad' and 'Fargo' ('Fargo' is a fabulous series and well worth watching if you haven't seen it).
3. In the 'Windfall' movie, Nobody, a thief who has broken into a property and has been caught by Wife and CEO when they return home unexpectedly, negotiates taking the cash and Rolex he has found/been given. Where does Nobody put Wife and CEO so that he can safely escape with the money and Rolex?

Answer: The sauna

After taking the phones of Wife and CEO and throwing them into a fountain, Nobody ushers a protesting Wife and CEO into the outside sauna. He tells them that they need to wait for an hour before they make any attempt to get out. As the sauna doesn't appear to have a lock, Nobody is forced to try and barricade them in by pushing outdoor furniture up against the door of the sauna.
4. In the 'Windfall' movie, Nobody has his cash and Rolex and believes he has safely secured Wife and CEO. He is now ready to make his escape off the property with his ill-gotten gains. What prevents him from doing this?

Answer: He spots a security camera.

Nobody (the character) - apparently reasonably happy with his ill-gotten gains, goes back to his car and is about to drive away when he happens to look up to see a security camera hidden in a tree. He doesn't know who owns the camera or where the footage is fed to.

This then, puts the kibosh on his escape plan and, with a sigh, he returns to the house to get answers from CEO and Wife about the security camera.
5. In the movie 'Windfall', Nobody (the character) returns to the house to find CEO and Wife have escaped. Nobody desperately searches for them. When Nobody spots CEO, he gives chase. What type of landscape does the ensuing chase of Wife and CEO take part in?

Answer: An orchard of orange trees

When Nobody returns to the house, he finds Wife and CEO have escaped from the sauna. After a quick search of the house, Nobody goes into the orchard where he spots CEO running through the orange trees. (If you remember, we also saw Nobody slowly peeling and eating an orange in orchard in the opening sequence of the film.) Nobody (the character) gives chase and finally captures CEO, tackling him to the ground. Nobody then yells to Wife that he has her husband, and that he has a gun. Wife then comes out of her hiding place and Nobody escorts them back to the house.
6. In the movie 'Windfall', Wife and CEO, after lengthy discussions, have agreed to give Nobody $500,000 - however, advise it will be 24 hours before Nobody can have the money. Thus, as night falls, our three characters are forced to hang out together and watch a movie. Which movie, co-starring Steve Martin, do they watch?

Answer: The Three Amigos

Nobody, Wife and CEO all sit down to watch 'The Three Amigos', starring Steve Martin, Martin Short and Chevy Chase. They watch it on a large flatscreen TV in the outdoor area. Neither Wife or CEO are tied up, in fact, it looks like a normal movie night. Wife giggles at the onscreen antics and Nobody smiles, but CEO - rather understandably, since his intent of returning to the hacienda was to spend some quality time with his wife - just looks downright grumpy.
7. In the 'Windfall' movie, Nobody insists that they all have to stay the night on the property since they are still waiting on the money, but that Wife and CEO can't sleep in the same room together. The next morning, just after they have all congregated in the lounge room, who surprises them by knocking on the door?

Answer: The gardener

The gardener shows up at the front door and is insistent that he shows CEO his future plans for the garden and his works-in-progress to date. Nobody, Wife and CEO all therefore dutifully tromp through the new part of the garden, issuing the necessary praises to the delighted gardener.

However, once they stop walking, the gardener says he needs CEO to sign off on some paperwork. CEO, of course, takes the opportunity to try to get help, so surreptitiously scribbles 'call 911' on the paperwork, folds it and gives it back to the gardener. Nobody, Wife and CEO then all go back inside.
8. In the movie 'Windfall', our three main cast members are in the lounge room looking out at the newcomer who arrived that morning. They still have eight hours to go before the money is due to be delivered. What does CEO propose they do to while-away the time?

Answer: Play board games and charades

CEO, rather oddly for someone in a hostage situation, suggests they play board games or charades. However, we quickly realise he is most likely trying to distract Nobody from looking at the gardener, who has opened his paperwork and is looking curiously at the hastily scribbled writing on it. Nobody, who is no dummy, realises what's happened and quickly goes outside to prevent the gardener from leaving. Now Nobody has a third hostage, the gardener.
9. In the movie 'Windfall', it is now afternoon: our four characters are sitting around doing absolutely nothing in an almost completely silent room. They all look thoroughly bored and are all checking their watches on a regular basis. Who, at this point, loses their patience, decides Nobody isn't a real threat, and decides he/she is simply going to leave?

Answer: CEO

It is CEO who cracks. After regaling the others with how hard life is for a rich white guy (eyebrows are raised all around at this) and that in his opinion, Nobody isn't a real threat, he decides he has had enough and he's just going to leave. Nobody (the character) puts a stop to this by pulling out his gun and placing it mere inches from CEO's face.
10. In the movie 'Windfall', CEO is taunting Nobody in the living room. He tells Nobody - several times, and with increasing animosity - that Nobody is basically gutless and a 'nothing'. This clearly infuriates Nobody, who then does what in retaliation?

Answer: Shoots a bullet just past CEO

Clearly incensed by CEO's words, and in the first piece of real violence we have seen from Nobody - to this point he has been quite laid-back - he shoots just past CEO, hitting the wall behind where CEO is standing. CEO, clearly not expecting this from Nobody, at this point ducks slightly and then stares in shock at Nobody. Wife also shows her surprise, swivelling to look at Nobody.
11. In the movie 'Windfall', Nobody has just shot his gun. Someone at this point appears to panic, and starts to run. Unfortunately though, he trips over in his haste to escape and does what?

Answer: Puts his head through a glass door

The gardener literally falls head first into one of the glass doors. When he pulls his head out, with a horrible squelching sound, we can see blood pouring from a neck wound. It's very quickly clear this is not a wound anyone is going to walk away from. Nobody (the character) rushes to where the gardener has fallen out on the patio and swears a lot as CEO and Wife look on in horror from the living room.

After a few gurgling sounds, the gardener dies.
12. In the movie 'Windfall' one of the characters is now lying dead just outside the patio doors. Inside there is shock and horror from the remaining characters. Eventually Nobody decides to hide the body from sight. How does he do this?

Answer: He draws the curtains shut.

After the gardener's demise, the next scene shows Wife and CEO have now been tied at the feet, presumably so they don't go the same way the gardener did. Wife and CEO sit staring out of the patio doors at the dead gardener, while Nobody sits with the dead body. Eventually Nobody goes back inside, and slowly draws the curtains shut. Wife at this point seems to fear that Nobody will do something to her and CEO, and spends time reassuring Nobody that the gardener's death was just a terrible accident, that Nobody is a good person, and that killing them will cross a line. Nobody (the character) seems to heed this advice.
13. In the movie 'Windfall' it is evening and the three remaining cast are silently sitting in the living room, with CEO and Wife tied up. A car draws up to the house, signifying the money has finally arrived. Who goes down the driveway to pick up the bag of money?

Answer: Wife

Wife is untied and sent down the long driveway to pick the bag of money up. When she's checked it's all there, she walks past the money and out the front gates, where she then stands looking wistfully up the road. A car approaches and we get the feeling she might hail it down. (We've had the feeling as the movie progresses that Wife's husband is a bully and that their marriage is far from perfect.) However, the car shoots past and Wife returns to the money, picks it up, and makes the short journey back to the house.
14. In the movie 'Windfall', it is nightime and our three characters are back on the living room, with Wife and CEO tied at their hands and feet. However, Wife has managed to get hold of a piece of glass and is sawing at her bonds. When she frees herself, what does she do?

Answer: Bludgeons Nobody to death

Wife, once she has sawed through her bonds, grabs a piece of ceramic art we've previously seen adorning a side-table, and races quietly up behind Nobody. He is leaving through the front door, money bag in hand. As Nobody bends to tie a shoe-lace, Wife cold-bloodedly bludgeons Nobody to death with said ceramic art. Meanwhile CEO, who can't see Wife from his position, is calling out to Wife (who he calls 'babe) asking her repeatedly what she's doing/what is happening. Wife does not respond in any way.
15. At the end of the movie 'Windfall', CEO, still tied up on a kitchen chair, is ecstatically congratulating Wife for her actions of minutes earlier. After a bit, he stops congratulating her and instead starts instructing Wife to untie him. What does Wife do next?

Answer: She shoots CEO dead.

As CEO effusively instructs Wife to untie him, he realises she isn't as excited by this turn of events as he is, and in fact, she has a gun pointed at him. He has just uttered a disbelieving 'What? Are you going to shoot me?' when Wife, equally as cold-bloodedly as she bludgeoned Nobody to death, empties the gun into CEO's body. She then wipes her prints off the gun and plants the gun into Nobody's hand.

Wife now has her freedom from both a thief, and a husband she clearly didn't love - or maybe even like - very much. Since her husband was a multimillionaire, she also has quite a lot of money too. All in all, it's been quite a good day for Wife.
