I have not seen that film, but,

that stress is probably a vocative stress: exists in calling a person, rather than in referring to a person. That vocative pronounciation also often lengthens the stressed vowel.

The unmarked pronounciation is stress free and with a short -i- instead of with a long -ee-.
