Sex & Nudity

  • As Robert leaves his birthday party to go see Julie, Ellen suggestively teases that she hasn't even had a chance to give him his birthday present yet. And for much of the film, she seems to be utterly unaware of his infidelity.
  • Further, Ellen tells Robert she's known about all his illicit lovers through the years. She says she's been willing to put up with it because he's been so good at monetarily taking care of their family.
