In Nocturnal Animals, Susan is shown calling her daughter after reading an excerpt from her ex-husband's novel.
Is that you? Is everything OK?
Yes, everything is fine.
I just wanted to hear your voice. I miss you.
You woke me. I'm still in bed. Sunday morning, Mom. Can I call you back?
Yes. Invite me later. Go back to bed, honey.
You sound strange. Are you OK?
I'm fine. I'm fine. Back to bed. I love you.
What I don't understand is that Susan had an abortion earlier in her life, aborting the child that was conceived with her ex-husband.
This movie is also full of metaphors, which is why I am questioning this scene with her daughter. To my knowledge, her daughter is never mentioned during any other part in the movie.
Did Susan actually have a daughter or was this conversation some type of metaphor? If she actually does have a daughter, who is the father?
