The opening moments tell us a great deal about criminal justice lawyer Victoria by introducing the chaotic domestic space that she shares with her two daughters. Her current assistant/partner leaves her employment because he has been treated as little more than a babysitter. A wedding party brings two men back into her universe: Sam, a former client, and Vincent, an old friend she will soon find herself defending against domestic assault charges.
Triet’s most productive contribution to the rom-com tradition is the authentic female voice at the core of the film; Victoria is in a constant struggle to find a work-life balance. She finds herself wearing multiple hats and often resorts to chemical means in order to cope with the whirlwind of children cares, consulting with a client, lying in bed with a one-night-stand and seances with her psychiatrist. This editing motif serves to articulate how interdependent these personas are, as Victoria finds herself discussing her personal life with her clients and her professional life with her lovers. Her failure to separate these selves isn’t indicative of weakness. Rather, it renders Victoria more human and relatable.
