Early in the film, Susan finds photo negatives in the trash can. When she holds them up to the light and they show her face, she is clearly not wearing makeup.
When her husband Jack walks in seconds later, they show Susan's face and she is wearing dark orange lipstick. Seconds later, they show Susan's face again and she is wearing no makeup. See more »
Okay, at first the topic may seem a bit far-fetched. As this was the early 90's, we were all hearing about co-dependency, there was a deluge of books on the subject, and there were many more recovery groups readily available.
Connie Sellecca is very good as the disillusioned wife, being manipulated by her husband, Kevin Dobson. Dobson is a U.S. attorney who rationalizes his behavior. Even Selleca's mother advises her to just "count your blessings". Denial and alcoholism are also issues. Don't discount the movie because of this however, I try to be temperate, and while this is the man at fault, it could also occur the other way.
In conclusion, worth a view for anyone experiencing marital discord. The film addresses key issues, and while specific to the co-dependency issue, the need for Sellecca to break out and take care of herself is a positive message.
