Tiffany’s situation reminds me of that of Edmond Dantès in“ “The Count of Monte Cristo.” In the movie, the term “It’s complicated” is used several times.
Edmond Dantès was arrested, and imprisoned without trial in the Château d’If, a grim island fortress. A fellow prisoner, Abbé Faria, inspires his escape and guides him to a fortune in treasure. As the powerful and mysterious Count of Monte Cristo, he arrives from the Orient to enter the fashionable Parisian world of the 1830s and avenge himself on the men who conspired to destroy him.
Tiffany, like Edmond, has been betrayed by Ann Awful and “daddy” Tom. She is now imprisoned in a small dorm room. Perhaps her new roommate will be like Abbé Faria. Perhaps the roommate will inspire Tiffany to escape her situation, find a fortune in treasure, and avenge herself on those who conspired to destroy her.
Anyway, it’s a romantic thought.
