This is something which her husband certainly is not supportive of, he frequently drags her to his work parties and uses her to help seal business deals by getting her to lie to his clients. He also kicks up a huge fuss if she doesn’t want to do it and more than once forces her not to leave, however as soon as it is one of her events he just bails and leaves her there. It is surprising that a film with such loose morals, that is definitely unintentionally biased toward women serving men has been shown in a major film festival so close to the #MeToo movement.
The plot doesn't really develop and the characters don't really grow at all, instead it sort of meanders around the things that they do to try and maintain their income and very comfortable lifestyle, all while still not being satisfied by it. There is a whole section where they decide to rent out their apartment which is basically just another example of the husband getting his own way in spite of Edie's protests, and gives her a chance to freak out about other people touching her stuff... but to no real point and purpose.
It is simply rich people moaning about how unfulfilled their lives are despite having no real problems. The film gets two stars because it was so well shot and the acting was good. It is just a shame that the script was so sorely lacking.
