Well, although movie Complacent now streaming via Netflix , did capture the “suburban” lifestyle, it wasn’t even half as exciting to watch as when my neighbors arrive home from the bar.
“Complacent” is really a story of four different couples living in suburbia. Each couple has their own personal struggles, but puts on a façade to the rest of the world. When an individual in the group (Myah) decides to divorce her husband, she really challenges her sister Beth to become more independent. Beth’s controlling husband, doesn’t like the idea of independence so he attempts to turn everyone against Myah. Every couple had different struggles, and in the midst of a tragedy is when people begin to change.
This movie was about 45 minutes too long. Seriously, it was really long and drawn out.
I did think this film was able to capture hypocrisy, and the general viewpoint of the upper middle class, but it was just too bland for my liking.
If you have a lot of time you might enjoy this film, but your best bet is to just watch your neighbors.
