The soulless plight of the rich and privileged is the basic topic of this film. While we all have problems, regardless of which rung on the economic ladder we find ourselves, I think the majority of the audience is not going to shed too many tears over women who are traumatized by having to figure out which diamond necklace best accents their designer gown.
I TRULY BELIEVE THAT MONEY CAN'T BUY HAPPINESS, BUT MONEY CAN MAKE BEING UNHAPPY A LOT BETTER. I CAN BE SAD ON FULTON STREET IN BROOKLYN OR DEPRESS IN MY CONDO OVERLOOKING THE BEACH AT MEGAN'S BAY, IN ST. THOMAS.
Seeing the callous way these upper-class socialites treat their employees and their own children is upsetting, but the fact that they made bad choices in child rearing, is not as compelling as the story of the lower-classes, who are forced into situations, not of their own making.
This film is trying to say a great many things about the social structure of the haves and the have-nots, but it is too ambitious and tries to touch too many emotional bases, but it is worth seeing.
