I absolutely love this movie, but one think that I keep wondering is whether Celine is being made out as the villain too much through out it, especially in the final argument scene (I've tried to include as much of it as I could below):
- Part 1 -
- Part 2 -
- Part 3 -
- Part 4 -
Happy to be proven wrong but here are a few reasons why it appears this way to me:
- Jesse appears to be trying to taking a defensive position more of the time
- He tries to use his humour to turn the conversation around and deescalate things
- He mentions positive things about Celine, as oppose to only negative
- He tells her he still loves her, is committed to her etc
- The scene ends focussed on Jesse's reaction as if to make us sympathize with him more?
I'm not a relationship coach or anything so may have missed something, but overall I am wondering if it is intentional that Celine isn't portrayed in a way that is as easy to sympathize with as Jesse since it feels a little unfair to her character. If she being vilified?
