    I couldn’t disagree with you more. The characters are flat, with no interesting qualities. The guy is just there to look hunky and symbolize a poorly thought out alternative to a stable relationship that this woman seems too immature to actually handle. She’s thoughtless, and ignorant of the affect her actions have on other people. How a person “feels” doesn’t amount to anything worth much, it’s your ACTIONS that truly matter, and all this woman does is hurt those around her and act like a prat. She is, ultimately, a bad person, and the film doesn’t even bother trying to explore her complexly or bother condemning her. It just expects us to fill in the emotional blanks with our own personal baggage, and that’s just sloppy cinema.
