unlike the comment i've just read through, i don't see this movie is
trying to make Emilia (natalie Portman) as any kind of hero. Rather, I
see how this movie portraits how contradictory life is, got married
with someone who's changed over time and the sparks are not there
anymore, seeing a man who you fall in love in first sight but he's
married, grow up in a broken family angry with the irresponsible dad
but turned out everyone forgive him for nothing, giving birth to a baby
but it dies in 3 days, have to be step-mother dealing with a "son"
that's not yours, all these make Emilia lost, she started pissing off
people, from strangers to her husband, she did try fixing all those
from time to time but either she did it the wrong way or it just so
happened that things are too complicated to straighten out, life's just
too complicated. at the end everyone around her cannot put up with her
anymore, not even her husband...
and probably all she's done was due to that at the bottom the heart there was a knot, a thing that she couldn't let go couldn't forgive herself, until Carolyne told her no, u didn't do it, it wasn't your fault.
after then, she changed, but only to find that the world is not like the same, no matter what she does things done are irreversible, and no matter how u apologize or make your talk the ones who was once closest to u can simply turn their back to u giving u an answer "no, i cannot do it", and this is a very true portrait of life, and it touches me.
to me, i don't see any ethical problem or anythg like such in the movie, after all it's not uncommon to see more hysterical stuff happening around us in this world this story is just about life and how tiny and complicated it can be to every of us.
