Where, for instance, does Gina’s feminism come into the heart and soul commitment she demands from George? What triggers Joanna’s drinking- frustration(sexual or artistic) or simply lack of loving kindness? George’s charm may be strong enough to command a remarkable degree of loyalty…but his teenage daughter understands what lies beneath the charm…
