Elizabeth is also fetishized in this manner, allowing the viewer to feel her struggle to walk away after she is confronted with infidelity, when the camera focuses on her feet as she hesitates in front of her ex’s apartment before finally turning and quickly leaving the scene to embark on her journey of
